It seems that Falcon has decided to take their challenge to other manufacturers of archival optical media to a new level. They submitted their FalconMedia Century Gold DVD-R and CD-R as well as their newer Platinum DVD-R to the well-respected LNE(Laboratoire national de mÃ©trologie et d’essais) to verify their 100/300 year archival claims for their Century DVD-R/CD-R. Details can be found here.
Its refreshing when a media manufacturer goes beyond their own testing claims for verification with an independent testing body.
And yes, they passed LNE’s requirements for certified archival optical media with all three of their Century products.
Congrats to FTI for continuing to take the high road and provide high end optical media while we continue to watch many manufacturers outsource and compromise and offer us less and less for our dollar.
