There are better products out there, but not for a price as low as these. Every now and again (I think about 1 in 100, which is significantly more than the Infiniti Samurai for instance), you get a DVD that turns out to be a DUD. The flaws, which occur at manufacture, are easily noticable just by looking. This is a real pain if you find that you can't close the disc, once full of your TV recordings. By all means buy away, but do take the couple of seconds checking the surface of each disc before committing to record on it. I'm still using them, but I use better for PC data.
