    I just bought these for 19.98 - 12.00 rebate = 7.98

    75 DVD-R (8x), 25 CD-R

    Are they any good or did I get screwed?

    Run DVD-Info (Can be downloaded and is free) and report what thy of actual media it is that you have purchased (i.e., RITEKxxx). Then we should be able to comment.

    Get the media code. I would stick with Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden.

    I have bought OD brand DVD -R that were actually Verbatim discs. Just depends on who made the discs for them. When you buy specials, it's like the line from Forrest Gump. "It's like a box of chocolates, you don't know what you're going to get."

    The manufacturer id is RITEKF1

    Though it says 8x on the case they will burn at 4x,8x,12x and 16x

    Generally considered junk. See here. Wouldn't use them for full length movies. If you have something that is 30-45 minutes in length, it may be alright at 4x.

    But probably won't last more then a couple of years. Like I said go buy Verbatim, TY, or Maxell BQ.
