This being about the sixth spindle of these Maxell disks, disguised in a variety of packaging, I have been through.
Out of all these I am still waiting for my first failure.
These disks, for me, have been extremely reliable and I would recomend them to one and all.
They have been used for a variety of applications, photo storage, file back up, home movies etc.
Some of these have seen repeated playback and much hadling, and the rigours of children without an issue.
I personally now swear by these disks and refuse to pay more for what in the past I have found to be inferior products.
All in All a very good product an exceptionlly good price.
