Unless you buy in bulk (100`s or more) from websites, decent media can sometimes be hard to find in stores. Just thought i would pass on the following:
Verbatim DVD+R 8x, Photo printable, Advanced AZO. (Single or box of 10)
Inspection reveals they are made in taiwan. ser: ZC8365-DVR-X47B . MCC003. DVD identifier and Nero both report these discs as 12X
Verbatim DVD+R 8X Advanced AZO - Cakebox 25pcs
Inspection reveals they are made in taiwan. ser: ZD1331-DVR-X47B . MCC003. DVD identifier and Nero both report these discs as 12X
Just backed up some DVD`s with DVD shrink for test purposes. Both burned at 12X without a hitch. Transfer rate in CD Speed was very smooooth
Also, for those still using CDR
s, there is a Verbatim cakebox (100 pcs, pastel Colours) in some stores which are TY. Got some from Makro at the weekend. Â£19 for 100 TY CDRs is pretty good.
Not ground breaking info i know, but it may help someone.
