Bad verbatim -R from Meritline?

Have any of you had problems with the special on Verbatim -/+ DVD that were $35 (approx) after rebate? I ordered one of each. The + spindle seems OK. But the 1st 3 from the - spindle have some dye defects that appear AFTER a burn. I tried to take some shots with my digital camera, but haven’t had any luck. When you hold the disc under a lamp, the defects are visible. They look like a dark speck that has a “tail” radiating out towards the edge. 1 of the 3 is a coaster and the other 2 don’t look too pretty and I have to assume they’ll degrade over time and join the other disc.

Any of you come across the same problem. :a

Yep, but on 4x +r for me, in jewel cases in 10s

Meritline is known for customer service issues and seem to have more than their fair share of defective media. Check out http://www.resellerratings.com. Also, ever since Verbatim has switched virtually all of it’s production to CMC Mag and Prodisc, there seem to be more quality control issues.
