[QUOTE=Dogway;2692872]OK, as usual, self response, the LT10N is the “newer” model. Link
Now this is me thinking by my own, but it occurred to me that the H in LH10N is from HARD COAT and the T in LT10N is from TOUGH COAT, despite both being sold as tough coat (you can see both written in the packaging). Hell I feel smart lol[/QUOTE]
The reality guys is that nothing is new and there is never “2011” “2012” or “2013” version like some sellers like to label their titles. The discs have the same MID code, the same “Though Coat” technology but a different package or model number so technically all the discs are the same. This is pure marketing but nothing new on the discs.
Something new happened years ago when TDK released “Hard Coat” technology instead of “Durabis” that’s a major change but since then only the package changes, common users actually thinks discs with new package are “fresh” “newer” discs but more conscious users (probably only a mere 5%) come here to this forum to find out the truth.
Another big change and not announced is new verbatim discs (50gb) with MID code from panasonic. I can’t really tell if the discs kept the original hard coat developed by Verbatim or they have adopted Panasonic “Though Coat” too.
If the MID codes changes we can talk about something new on the discs but we haven’t notice any new MID code in years. Instead burners have adapted to current MID codes and compatibilities issues are in a minimum levels.
