Mitsubishi Chemicals DVD+R

We could ask Verbatim :wink:

Older MBI-made Verbatim were not bad … but now …

CMC made Verbatims are not much better these days. And Made In UAE by FTI seem to have disappeared. Only the expensive Dual Layer are still from UAE (and still very good).

It seem Verbatim doesn’t care much about quality of their media anymore. The latest DVD-R I bough in may 2017 have MBI MID code. Some of the discs show pitting just few month after burning, one failed to finish the scanning process.

Can´t say atm, all my CMC-made MCC-media is not new. But CMCs own SL-media works for me also still better than actual MSI.

Maybe I had luck with my Philips-branded AM3.

From all my newer media only TTH02 by FTI are similar, sometimes more worse

Notes: A different batch. Trying to achieve adequate burn quality with strategy swapping (this burn done with MBIPG101 R05 as on previous batch though).

brand: “Verbatim DVD+R 16x AZO”
MID: MCC 004
Dye Type: Metal Chelate, Advanced AZO+
Manufacturer: CMC Magnetics (Made in Taiwan)
Manufactured: December 24th, 2016

hub code: PAP6 79UL24235405 3
stamper code: ZE6383-DVR-T47D

Notes: I don’t like the PIE tsunami or the jitter but looking at BenQ PIF scan, it doesn’t look as bad as others. Of course the dye type of D21 was completely different so it’s not unexpected.
I decided to give up on write strategy swaps for this batch…

LG GH82N R204, 3400MB burned at 6x

MID: MCC 004

hub code: PAP6 79UL24235507 2
stamper code: ZE6383-DVR-T47D

Notes: Decided to try the LG, no improvement really except for less frequent PIF distribution. The PIF clusters butcher the burn.

Samsung SH-S203B SB04, 3400MB burned at 8x

brand: “Verbatim DVD+R 16x AZO”

hub code: 5343 520 +R E A 25001
stamper code: ZE4929-DVR-T47D

Notes: I didn’t think I’d ever be saying this, but it appears MBI made MCC 004 produces higher quality burns in this case… :eek: (it’s still not good)

Indeed, not that bad for newer MBI-made MCC 004, but still far away from older MCC 004.

Recently burned this media

Have to look when and who made it, media was bought some weeks ago from a friend, but my printable MCC-media was in the past always made by CMC
