To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wonder how many of the people who reviewed these disks even *considered* that the problem might be their drives or software? I've burned at least 30 of these disks in 6 different burners, by 5 different companies (Sony, Phillips, Acer, Yamaha, Lite-On). And for software, I've used the most recent versions of Easy CD Creator, DirectCD, Nero Burning Rom, Nero InCD, NTI Cd-Maker, and NTI FileCD. Not one problem. I've got 20 or so of these disks waiting for their turn, so I won't need new ones for a while. When I do, I might look for a better price, but I definetely won't need another brand or model.
