[QUOTE=deanwitty;2599405]Very interesting. As Verbatim’s DataLifePlus 16X azo DVD-R’s are now being made by Chinese manufacturers, it seems likely that those same manufacturers would be selling their B grade discs to other resellers. If the Chinese-made Gigablock DL’s I’ve tested are any indication:Z, you may be better off spending $2.00/100 more for the verbies at meritline if you’re curious to test an MIC azo :)[/QUOTE]
Dean, thanks for the reply it’s not really that much about the money, $1 or $2 don’t make a big difference to me. I just started looking around at alternatives after the last batch of Verbies were CMC MAG AM3’s, I don’t think they have AZO dye. I have only used Verbies and TY’s for the last few years, I have heard Verbatim is starting to sell inferior product and my jast batch seems to confirm that.
