As you might notice, there will be a slight increase in these review posts. I plan to post as many as possible.

This review is for DVD+R disks of brands including: Sony, Memorex, and Magnavox. For the test we used a shareware based program to burn the disks with, all videos were in avi format and each tested brand came with 50 disks. There was also a test in making chapters, and the videos were in either wide or full screen versions.

Sony: Clearly the best quality of disk that I have tested, only one did not work, and that was an audio driver failure. I fixed the problem and the second disk worked without errors. It had high quality picture and sound, the disks even played on a no-name-brand dvd player. Also used some of the disks for storing pictures, video, and music. One of the data disks became scratched so it was unusable. The other disks were used over and over again without problem. Price: $12 for 50, 2 years ago. Reviewed: 10 out of 10.

Memorex: Our DVD player would no longer properly play disks, so it was replaced with a new sony player. Memorex disks play the best on Sony DVD players. Average quality and long-lasting disks, all of these worked, only two have no chapters (oops, forgot to set them). Was able to pick them up at Walmart on sale 50 for $9.98. Reviewed: 9 out of 10.

Phillips: Disks are of normal quality and write data and DVD video disks with ease. The only negative thing is that their Phillips logo takes up most of the disk, so that there is little room to write the disk description. I am also finding that 3 out of 10 disks have problems with sinking audio with video, however their price was extremely reasonable. Reviewed: 7.5 out of 10.

Leave any questions in a comment, and I will try to answer them.
