I’m looking to archive family pictures and other documents that will be scanned in at as highest quality resolution I can (probably via a bureau or DIY) ; the original masters being put into secure storage.
From the last time I bought media, a while ago, TY appeared to be the best but from reading the forums it appears that quality had degraded; comments I’ve read suggest that the new 16x DVD media isn’t as good as their prior 8x.
From the initial research I’ve done I’m thinking about:-
[li]Verbatim 8x DVD-R Archival[/li][li]Falcon 8x DVD-R Archival Gold[/li][li]Falcon 52x CD-R Archival Gold[/li][/ul]Additionally…
[li]M-Disc. I haven’t got a compatible writer but given the technology is fairly new, compared with CD / DVD technology, I’m wondering if it’s worth holding off for now or not.[/li][li]I’m aware that Falcon had had their media tested by a French lab.[/li][li]It appears that CD-R media appears to have a longer livespan that DVD-R media[/li][/ul]Thoughts ?
