    Would anyone like to comment or express an "opinion" on the quality of HP DVD+R 16x made in Taiwan.

    If it's CMC MAGM01, then avoid it.

    CMC Mag01 DVD+R media

    My CMC Mag M01 media (TDK inkjet printable from Costco) burn and play perfectly, consistently. And they have for years. Burning with Benq 1650/1655 and Lite-On 16A7S Sata burners.

    TDK being sold in Costco currently is B-grade stuff and generally mediocre to terrible recently.

    But with specific regard to HP's (in addition to what I already do know) CMC MAGM01, you can also visit http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia/hp-dvd-r-cmc-mag-m01-16/3756#comments

    When you start to compare burn quality of these over a wide variety of burners, there's simply no comparison to
    either Verbatim nor Taiyo Yuden premium.

    Also with respect to what's happening with TDK recently, visit
