Maxell were held in fairly high regard when it comes to optical media. Unfortunately, they have exited the business early on, so this is more of a historical thing. I know them most for their DVD-RAM products.
Maxell 8x DVD-R
I’ve never handled a Maxell DVD-R until I saw this one. The disc looks distinctive with its thin edge seals. The media code is MXL RG03.
Maxell 3x DVD-RAM
This is an MXL3 disc.
Maxell 5x DVD-RAM
This is an MXL16 disc from my earlier scans. The underside looks identical to the one above.
