Bought some Verbatim DVD=R/-R +R DL

#1

I was shocked when I saw Verbatim DVD media from Taiwan (for SL) and Singapore (for DL) disappearing from stores and all I can find is MII and MIC Verbatim !

Luckily I found a place that has MIT Verbatim 50 Disc DVD+R/DVD-R CMC made

But DVD+R DL was MIT CMC Made :eek: :confused:

Anyway I got 500 DVD-R/DVD+R discs and a 10 disc spindle of DVD+R DL for testing

Here is a scan for the MKM003 MIT :

Is it good ?

Scan looks fine to me, doesn’t have the usual layer break spike either. It will be interesting to see how long they hold up but looks like a great burn to me anyways.
The jitter does look a bit funky though but as long as it works that’s the big test I think.


#3

All in all the scan doesn’t look very bad but like Dartman said the jitter is a
little on the high side for my liking but if playback is alright then I guess it’s
good to go. :iagree:


#4

Thank you very much for the replies

I forgot to mention that I burnt it with NEC AD-7200S@6X

It is a data disc so I did the TRT only

I will try burning with the iHAS120@8X/6X to see whether it could be better


#5

I would be interested in a high speed scan. The same discs can look quite different scanned at 12x vs. 4.




#6

I would think the UAE Verbatim media would be plentiful in Egypt…


#7

Scan looks great!

(I’ve ordered 200 Verbatim DVDRs too, just to have some stashed in case they really disappear in Europe)


#8

The discs are PAH7 batch made by CMC and I got 10 disc spindle for testing and as they turned out good I will get more

I still have some MIS MKM003 and they are of the same quality scan-wise

There are no UAE Verbatim here in Egypt (Are they good ?) the distributor gets Verbatim from Europe !

Are your MKM003s MIS or MIT ?

The 12X scan looks good , it is another disc burnt with LiteOn iHAS120 @6X this time and LiteOn is way worse than the AD-7200S

What do you think ?





#9

Here is a scan done for another disc burnt@4X with NEC AD-7200S




#10

This is look much better than mine MKM003 MIT DL’s. Mine scans were comparable to Yours @12x.

Nice burn :clap:

That does look like a good batch of MIT’s. It would be nice to see MIT MKM003 consistently burning that well. My iHAS120 DL burns were also not great. I would not be concerned with that jitter spike on the first scan. The 120 is a decent DL scanner, but mine would occasionally show a spike like that that did not show up when scanned with Plextor, BenQ, or even a newer Lite-on iHAS324 A. Hope to see your next batch looking this good :).

SL Discs on the other hand are super-crap ! :eek:

+R or -R from different spindles are crap scan-wise

I’ve never seen this with Verbatim media before !

I will show you a newly burnt disc from an older 25 Disc spindle that I got months ago from RadioShack when all 25 Disc spindles were MIT but now are MII

New 50 Disc spindle MIT Made by CMC MAP 6 Burnt@ 8X :

Old 25 Disc spindle MIT Made by CMC MAP 7 Burnt@ 12X :

What the hell is this ?

Should I get MII Verbatim then ? :doh:
