Been a long time away, all my my up-to-date suppliers have changed and so have many brands and which factories they use.
So, I'm on a look out for inexpensive, but good quality Verbatim DVD+R DL discs within the EU (no amazon.com, newegg.com, etc US only suggestions, please).
I've been able to find some decent prices, but the sellers of course do NOT tell anything useful about the discs (like country of manufacture).
So, is there a way to identify or even with likelihood rule out worse quality manufacturing batches/versions by looking only at manufacturer code or EAN code?
For example Verbatim DVD+R DL with:
Manufacturer code: 97693
Can I deduce is this from Singapore? UAE? China? India?
This is sold within the EU and has a package (supposedly) like below:
If anybody knows or can fill in the potential/most likely places of manufacure (along with quality ratings) for the following MFG codes, please post here (These are all for Verbatim branded discs, no other manufacturers/brands):
