We used them extensively back in the late-90's/early-2000's.
At the time they were considered one of the better brands of blank media,
and worked well with their CD recorders (which we also had).
Once they were no longer cost-competitive compared to other high-quality
media, we no longer used them, but the recordings made were and still seem
to be in good shape. - I'll try to get over to the archive and dig out some
samples to make sure this is currently the case and report back if its not.
