Nasty batch of Verbs

Evening all.
I was just wondering;

  1. Which are the better productions of Verbatim DL discs, and
  2. Is there a way to tell what’s in the stack before taking them home?

I got a good deal on a stack of 20, but have burned pretty much 100% coasters. A couple discs even were identified as single layer!!

Thanks for any tips.

No matter what rated speed Verbatim +R DL’s need to have “Made In Singapore” on the package.

The made in India ones are less consistent.
