I agree wholeheartedly. This can be extended to things like medical records. Archives can and do turn to a pile of garbage as a result of archivers’ media choice decisions. All too often buying what their supplier is selling as “archival” media. We all know that what a reseller chooses to sell often has more to do with profit margins than quality :a
Those LNE archival tests of BD-Rs in another thread were a real eye-opener and slap in the face to manufacturers’ “50 year” claims for LTH BD-R.
Hopefully this is similarly a wake-up call to folks looking for media with something more than a manufacturer’s claim of “ARCHIVAL”.
It would be nice to think that other manufacturers might have the guts to do what Falcon has done here, but then again, perhaps they already have.
And wisely chose not to advertise that their “Archival” media failed the test ;).
