I came into contact with them at school. We had to use HHB brand CD-
Rs almost exclusively because the HHB BurnIT we used was extremely
finicky with what type of CD-Rs were used. I had always thought they
were of descent quality if not good quality discs, though that might
have been because they were fairly expensive when compared to other
CD-Rs. In any case, all the music department concerts and recitals
were recorded on the BurnIT using HHB CD-Rs during the past decade,
if not longer, with no issues caused by the CD-Rs themselves. And,
as of a year ago, they were still in good shape. This, of course, is
just my experience with them.
