I answered a question in another forum about long term storage of information on dvds. My solution was +R 8x Taiyo Yudens from rima.com, but I did tell the guy that archival dvds do exist. Looking at Amazon, there are several brands available including Delkin, Memorex, Mitsui and Verbatim.
My question is—does anyone around here have direct experience using these disks? They seem to be a premium price, but are there any true “premium” performance enhancements, other than the scratch resistant coatings?
They all use gold reflective layers, but will this actually increase longevity as they claim, or is this just marketing hype as we so often see these days?
