BitBurners offers MediaBase service has put its new MediaBase service into Public Alpha testing mode ahead of its launch. The new feature, which is still under development, aims to create a robust, reliable database of writable DVD media quality scans. For now, the service allows you to view and submit scans (using Nero CD-DVD Speed) of recordable DVD media, but as suitable tools are launched it will add support for next generation formats.
The principle of the MediaBase is simple: Users can submit their Nero CD-DVD Speed quality scanning data, provide their subjective rating for the media (0-5 stars) and write a brief textual comment/review. As more data is collected, the database will start to have statistical validity and they will be able to produce very interesting quality statistics and information about the DVD recordable media on the market.

For now, the service is suitable for the more advanced power users of DVD recorders and software, but of course, searching for scans is very easy. Media quality scans are important to track the highest quality media available on the market and to help users avoid wasting their money on garbage media that would be better used as a frisbie.
