Bd-r lth

Are BD-R LTH discs (Verbatim made if it matters) still not suggested for archival of important data?

Yes. :iagree:

Avoid them at any cost. :bigsmile:

Not just Verbatim LTH media, but LTH media in general should be avoided.
For archival of important data you should use Panasonic BD-R media.

I looked where I usually buy discs from and they only had BD-R LTH media in spindles. At three times the price they also had BD-R HTL media in jewel boxes of 10. If I had a bluray writer I would be tempted to try the cheap BD-R LTH media.
