The PlexDisc CD-R 100pk Spindle

Hi everyone,

Today, we’ll see the PlexDisc CD-R 100pk I got from Amazon some time ago:

These discs are manufactured by Optodisc Taiwan, and holds 700MB of data or 80 minutes of audio. They can be burned at up to 52x, altough nowadays most writers burn them at up to 48x.

The discs have a logo top:

Here is how a single disc looks:

It has a light green color on the data side. The discs seem to be well made. ImgBurn says the discs have a Daxon media code:

PlexDisc CD-R on Optiarc AD-7561A

In my next post, we’ll see how well my IDE Slim Optical Drives handles this media.

Hi everyone,

A few days ago, I wrote I was trying to burn a Verbatim CD-RW on some old IDE drives. Today, I’m showing you the pack of these discs I got last year, which is what I’m still using to this date.

These discs can be burned up to 12x. However, my drives can only burn them up to 10x. I don’t remember owning a drive that actually allowed me to burn at 12x. For some reason, they all can burn these at 10x.

The discs are top logo branded:

On the data side, it has a dark grey color:

Once burned, it is a bit darker. Notice in the inner ring the light color and then it turns darker.

Verbatim CD-RW 7

The burned shade will depend on the burner used. In this particular case, the burned area is a bit lighter. Note that, however, the disc had previous data before, which is why the rest of it looks darker.

The discs are perfectly compatible on my Oakcastle Portable CD Player and this is how I’m testing them before finally moving the disc to a CD-R.

Overall, I’m pleased with these discs.
