Hello all,
I recently have recvied a package of spindle Memorex Black CD-Rs. Are these any good or should I just dump them and keep using my gold and sliver CD's? To me it does not look like it should work. It does not look that reflective to me.

A friend gave these to me (new package) so it is not any big deal if they don't work. I just thought I would ask and see what the general consensious was here. Even if they do work, how long do you think they will last? If they are going to give way to bit rot in a few years might as well not bother then.

Any info is apprecated. Thanks in advance.

Hello!

This is only word of mouth, but I have heard that Memorex does not have a good reputation. But in the same breath, I use dark, multicoloured generic blank CD's and have never had a coaster.

Considering that you have them anyway, and blank CD's are so cheap, use a few! The proof will be in the pudding, then you can post your results and comments in the Riview Forum!:D

I use Memorex, have had no problems. Well, 3 coasters but that was my fault.

They would not produce black CD-Rs if they didn't work. The reflection of them does not matter.

i use the black memorex cd-r's ALL the time and i have had no problem at all.

it seems to me that they can survive a scratch a lot better. seems like a small scratch on a "regular" cd can mess up the cd more than if the cd was on one of the black cd-r's.

just my two cents.

Hello all,
Thanks for all the info. I just had not seen black CD's before and it threw me for a loop, thought I would ask here before trusting my data to them. I know Memorex is a good brand name, but hey you never know, somtimes the brand name don't mean dit. And like I said I never saw black before lol.

Thanks again.
