You’ve actually had some Memorex media last several years, eh? That is reassuring since I have several dozen in my collection.
I’ve often heard that Memorex is the ‘bottom-basement’ of recordable media which is why I kinda freaked when one failed after only a few months. You’ve helped to restore my confidence in them.
As for the warranty thing, that was so below my radar I hadn’t even considered it… after all, the postage would cost more than the disk! lol
Thanks, OM. Your post helped me to put things into perspective. If I were to burn a hundred DVD’s of any brand, their one to five percent failure rate would surely show up sooner or later.
First of all, my pleasure. Glad to help. I mean, let's face it. NO media maker makes 100% reliable products, not even Taiyo Yuden.
Second, I've got maybe 150 or so by Memorex. So far, so good. It was their VCR videotapes that I truly hated... dropouts galore.
And third, there was no postage cost; all I did was phone them toll-free and they sent replacements out at no charge.
For bargain basement stuff, CompUSA's store brand discs (and other no-name stuff) were made by Princo, generally considered the worst on the planet. I remember buying a hundred on a spindle. I had two coasters. Two!
Now, if you ask me about Sony media...!
