Does lite-on 1693S like verbatim media?

I am in the market for a new burner. I have read alot of good reviews on the lite-on 1693S.The egg also has a sale too…

I have about 150 verbatim DVD-R media laying around I dont want to go to waste. The media code is MCC 02RG20 made in taiwan.

Anyone use this combo?

Also I notice there is 2 different ones on the egg. One says “RETAIL” 41.75"

the other “OEM” 42.99 out of stock"

What is the difference between retail and oem???
