Are Black CDR's OK ?
Been getting some PNY 80min 20x CD-R's from Tiger.
I've heard some controversy about "colored" discs ?
Anyone know about this ?

As far as i have read, the laser cant even tell the difference between coloured discs & normal ones, and have actually red that the black discs are usually better for some cd players that have tracking issues with cdr's.
never used them myself tho, no-one in my area sells them....

I used to use the PNY Black Diamond discs all the time, but now I can't get them locally
They are great discsWhat did a tornado sound like before freight trains were invented?

No problems here with black or colors. Memorex, PNY, or generic cheapo brand...

There's no appearant advantage or disadvantage to use of coloured disks. In theory, black disks should last longer, but not appreciably so.

Really the only advantage is that the disks can stand more or less light exposure depending on the dye color used. The difference is supposedly expressed in decades, so I have paid no special attention to the disk dye since I do not plan to have these that long. I have had not problems with any CD-Rs I have used and have used all dye colors. So, I'd say, buy away!

They look good and work as well as others, but I can't tell how much of the disk is used.

well acording to a web site I visited a while ago anything black and chrome attached to a computer will not only preform better (in tests up to 130% better) then it's counterpart in the beige color, it also signifigantly increases the proccessing power of the computer in question!

lol skuz and bob
I've used all kinds/colors of CD-Rs...use whatever works in your cd player. My portable seems to hate all kinds...never use it anyway so *shrugs*...car cd player is awesome, though...it NEVER skips on ANY quality of cd-r..not picky at all

The different colouring in discs are an indication of the quality, I think it was black being best quality then silver then blue then green.
you are talking about the writeable part of the disc aren't you and not the label?
