Default Datawrite?

Hi Guys,

I am wondering what is the difference between datawrite red and yellow apart from the colour of the top!
The red ones seem to be more expensive does that mean they are better?

Cheers

Both of them should be avoided. Inconsistancies seem to be par for the course on the Datawrite label. The Reds are a B-Grade Ritek dye which seem to give lots of people trouble. The Yellows are supposedly Princo dye but they don't work nearly as well as Princos. Just remember that in most cases you get what you pay for.
