I got this recordable CD from my brother. I was visiting him at that time and needed one to copy a program. It’s branded Vivo, and runs a maximum of 80 minutes, with 52x burning feature. My brother has just started to use this brand, although it’s not a popular brand for recordable CD. The writing process went pretty well for copying the program that I wanted (CD to CD), no problems encountered during the writing process. My brother said that it was a quite good recordable CD although he got some of his CDs failed to burn (he uses Nero for burning). The CD can be labeled by a permanent marker, just like any other, and it doesn’t bother the quality of the data. My data written in this CD is still readable until now, and the surface doesn’t scratch a bit even though I put it to be read by my PC for many times. But let’s just see, how long it will last. In summary, I think this recordable CD is pretty good, and I consider buying it, but not so sure if I can find it here around my town.
