Average Customer Review(s):
Very good CD-R pack.
Pros: Very good CD-R.
ive found that maxell makes the best blank recordable cd' on the market----
Pros: very high quality
The order was just as I expected and was received at the time promised.
If you need to record music on a CD recorder, such as the Sony RCD W500C, you have to have music recordable CD's. Regular data CD's will not work. I've tried many different brands of music recordable CD's and have found Maxell to be the most reliable. With other brands, I have about a 20% error rate. With the Maxell discs, it's less than 1%. They also work in your computer disc drive like any data recordable disc. I highly recommend them.
Pros: Virtually error free, great sound quality
Cons: More pricey than regular data discs, but that's to be expected with CD recorders.
The best CD-R out there for recording music from my CD recorders. I like them also because they have lines to write info and titles etc. The only one out there who does this.
I have a recorder that will only let me record with these cd's and they work GREAT!
Pros: Great product and work like they are suppose to.
I don't expect a lot here: record faithfully and don't jam up. And the Maxell's do what I need, at least so far, as well as the Sony music CD's that I had previously. I have had some durability problems with the Sony's, so I am eager to see how these hold up in a difficult environment: the pocket on my car door. We will see.
Pros: Works as expected.
Pros: Fast shipping
Cons: No price match offer.
Good recordable discs are hard to find in my area. The 30 pack I received from Crutchfield are great! They arrived quickly and I have found no duds. I will definitely be ordering more!
Was looking for CD-R that would record in JVC model #XL-R500, late 1980's model. So far The Maxell's are the only ones I have found that work. The only down side is that out of the 30 count, 5 did not work. This is why I only gave them 4 stars. I will purchase more unless I find another brand that works. Apparently most of the current brands have a different format which is not compatible with this older JVC unit.
When you have the best you don't have to look any longer. I had a Spindel of 75 Maxell CD-R's and everyone worked prefect.
I use these CD-R CDs in an analog CD recorder for my student's music lessons. I've had a hard time finding these digital audio CDs in quantity at a good price. These work great, very few duds on a spindle. Service is great and very quick delivery. Thank you!
I have two stereo CD burners, Maxwell CD-R's are the only ones that I have found to work. Two local discount stores both did carry them but the one nearest me closed. The other one discontinued carrying them. Crutchfield is the only company that I could find them at a reasonable price, Thank You.
Pros: They will also burn using your computer
Cons: Hard to find in stores
the only cd-r's that work with my old Phillips recorder
Pros: they work
Like another reviewer said, store's are not carrying these discs anymore. I have always liked Maxell products. Thanks Crutchfield.
Never had a bad Maxell music disc. Have copied over 150 vinyl albums to disc.
I record a lot of music from albums,tapes,and CDs,and I have found that this brand is the best for this application,also I can not find them in any stores,no one carries them any more. Thank you Crutchfield.
Pros: Great for recording music
Cons: Can't find them any where but online
Maxwell cd's are the only choice for recording options they have great playback and have great sound
Pros: Excellent recording
Excellent product. I've been using these cd's for a while now. I have tried other brands but these are the best. Good recording quality and crisp sound. Good deal and free shipping thanks Crutchfield.
High quality - reasonable price. Have always preferred these discs for recording music.
I have an old Denon CD Recorder. These are on of the few CD-R's that will work in this machine. I have always liked Maxell since the days of Cassettes.
Never a bad one. Use exclusivly for my live365 internet station !
Pros: Excellent and faithful reproduction of music.
This has always been my blank CD of choice.
Pros: Clean and dependable!
A high quality product from a dependable company.
I have used Maxell CD-R blank cd's for recording on a Pioneer cd recorder for three years.They have always recorded flawlessly for me and would recommend this product to anyone who enjoys home audio cd recording!

Each gold and silver-colored disc has space to label the disc's contents. There are no individual jewel cases included with the discs.

I need more music. [ DAN Apr 16, 2016 ]
This brand of recordable CDs specifies "music" or "audio" which is what I need to record on my older machines. The Memorex and Verbatim CDs that are everywhere now won't record on my machines. [ William J. Feb 18, 2016 ]
I have a Sony recorder [ Anthony Jan 03, 2016 ]
I have a home cd recorder and I need this type of CD to use on it-digital audio must be written in the disc emblem. [ James Dec 12, 2015 ]
CDR disc is for use with a CD recorder - it is for music not data. I am very happy with these discs - no problems in 13 years of using Maxell CD-R discs. [ Clark Aug 01, 2015 ]
I have a stand alone Hi fi cdr burner and the only discs that work are ones that have to say on them Compact Disc digital audio Recordable thus data cdr's do not work. [ DAVID B Aug 01, 2015 ]
I don't know, I've never heard of Maxdata cd-r's. I do get good results with Maxell cd-r's. CSB [ Carlton Jul 30, 2015 ]
the maxell cd-r music disc will play in all the machines while the data will mainly play in just the computers . most of the older cd players cannot read the data discs . [ JOEL Jul 29, 2015 ]
Maxell cd-r is used for audio recording using a dedicated home audio recorder eg: sony rcd-w500c. Max data cd-r is for computer recording. [ DAVID Jul 28, 2015 ]
I don't think I have ever used the Maxdata disc. I just love the CD-R Disc for music. Jim [ JAMES H Jul 28, 2015 ]
The Maxdata CD-R disks are strictly data disks for use on a computer type device. While these CD's can be used to download audio files to from a computer they cannot work on some recordable CD devices. The Maxell CD-R Disk is a audio CD to be used on voice recording devices. These are specifically for capturing audio recordings like singing and are used on recordable cd devices. [ HENRY Jul 28, 2015 ]
Maxadata cd-r disc is for use on a computer specifically for data like documents, letters, spread sheets. Maxell CD-R disc is specifically for music and to "burn" music onto a CD disc when that music is stored on your hard drive from downloads. For instance, you could download MP-3's from iTUNES and then burn them onto a disc to listen to at home on a CD player, or in your car. [ DAVID Jul 28, 2015 ]
I don't know anything about "Maxdata", but I have used the Maxell cd-r over the years and I trust these discs to archive music that I intend to keep. [ Jeff Jul 28, 2015 ]
