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.
