Our take on the Maxell Recordable DVD-R Disc

This single-sided DVD-R disc offers 4.7GB of storage — enough to 60 minutes of ultra-high-quality MPEG2 video, 2 hours of video in standard mode, or up to 6 hours at VHS quality. This disc is compatible with DVD recorder write speeds up to 16X. It can be recorded once only, and when finalized, will play back on most current DVD players. Limited lifetime warranty.

Works with an old version of a Panasonic DVD/Tape recorder while other brands do not. 100% reliable.
