I have no idea if those are good or bad. Microboards does not make their own disks, so they are getting them from some source. If its Verbatim, they could be okay, but if its from any other source, I would be cautious. There is no way to know for sure without examining the hub code.
There are three sources of -R DL disks. In the US ther is the Ritek brand, and the Verbatim brand. The Riteks can be had for about a buck a piece, see here
, the Verbatims can be FIVE dollars a piece, or more, see here
. The third source I found was from the UK, where JVC Taiyo-Yuden DVD-R DL disks can be purchased for about $2.05 per disk here
. I have purchased form Carousel Media, and the items arrived faster than I would have guessed, in good condition. The proced ot $2.05 is the actual cost per disk that was charged to my credit card.
Yes, quality DVD -R DL disks are hard to find.
