Pros:Varied colors, low burn errors, 32x, inexpensive, come with jewel cases and tracklistings

Cons:Nothing

The Bottom Line: Looking for stylish and reliable CD-Rs? Your search ends here.


One thing that's really hard but seemingly easy to shop for is a good pack of CD-Rs. Usually whenever I think of blank media, Maxell is the first thing that pops into my head. Mainly because their blank tapes, cassettes, and CD-Rs are not only strudy but don't have errors and are inexpensive. One of my favorite kinds of CD-Rs are Maxell's Color CD-Rs. They don't have burn errors, they write at a decent speed, are inexpensive, and even come in cool colors to style off the CD-Rs like blue, gold, green, purple, and pink.

Maxell's Color Music CD-R media is one of the best of the best on the market. They come in five colors, blue, green, gold, pink, and purple, in 5 CD-Rs per color. They say music on them but I don't see anything different from regular ones. They have plenty of room to write what's on it. They burn at 32x but more likely than not I've been able to eek out 40x or 48x just fine. They also have the normal capacity of 80 minutes or 700 MB.

Burn Error
To be perfectly honest, I've NEVER had one burn error with these. Usually it is really hard to find CD-Rs that are perfect but these are. I've literally had 0 burn errors with these--Maxell gets tons of pops for that--even some of the more expensive CD-Rs have at least only a 95% for me. I've used them in iTunes and Nero without any problems at all. They all have a blue-ish dye to them and they are hard to see through.

Speed
Like I said before, they say they burn at 32x but I've burn these at even higher rates without any problems or errors.

Durability
Another big issue in CD-Rs are their durability and how easily they scratch. Overall, Maxell's Color CD-Rs are pretty hard to scratch. Of course if you sink your teeth into one it'll make scratches but they are above some of the more expensive CD-Rs. The bottom is pretty hard to scratch and the top is made with thick material that keeps the data more secure. Durability is definitely not an issue with Maxell CD-Rs.

Jewel Cases
The Maxell Music Color CD-Rs also come with handy-dandy cases. They're slim cases but they're still pretty durable. Another thing I really enjoy about these is that they come with tracklistings. You can write down what track/artist every track is and put down other information like time. These are really handy and often much more durable/easier than just using cut-out paper.

Price
The 30-packs of these CD-Rs are only around $17. That is a really inexpensive price for these CD-Rs. They are reliable and are pretty stylish.

The Bottom Line
Maxell's Music Color CD-Rs are definitely a CD-R I can easily trust without any problems. They don't have any burn errors, they burn at a decent speed, come with jewel cases and tracklistings, are inexpensive, and even come in five different colors to style things up a bit. If you're looking for stylish CD-Rs that are inexpensive and reliable then you should definitely check these out.
