I have a toshiba notebook, intel pent 4, xp, 512RAM, 1.9 ghz and an external BenQ burner 162I and dual layer 16X although I use 4.75 media.

I have a chance to purchase Maxell 4.75 R+ dvd's which is one of the brands recommended by BenQ. The others are Sony, Imation and TDK.

In Canada in the retail stores we are somewhat limited; and so when I saw the Maxell available at an excellent price I decided to buy some and now after using the "dvd identifier" program I find that the dvd's are Manufactured by Ricoh Japan, and that the Manufacturer ID is Ricoh Japan, the Media type ID: ROI and the blank disc is 4.38 gigs.

I just wanted an experienced opinion on whether these were good dvd's and I will go out and buy more.

I would appreciate comments, thankyou

Maxell products have been around for a long time, and has a reputation for good quality.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
