Just received another 20 disk Verbatim 2.4 DVD+R DL spindle from Amazon.com and, thankfully, they were MIS.
But there is no way to tell this from their website and a phone call to amazon was of no help.
I have to assume that all three Verbatim spindles I purchased from Amazon so far were MIS since I have not had a single coaster yet.
But going forward, I would feel more comfortable knowing in advance the country of origin.
This is all the information amazon provides:
8.5 Gbyte’s of storage capacity on a single-sided disc. No need to flip the disc
Largest compatible DVD back-up and data archiving format for computer drives.
Record 4 hours of DVD quality television and video (16 hours of VHS quality, Capacity of up to 12 CD’s)
Supported by high speed Double Layer writers, up to 8X, burn 8.5GB in approximately 15 minutes or less.
Compatible with DVD+R DL drives from Sony, Philips, Lite On and other leading manufactures. Ideal for archiving home movies

If anyone here can tell me what to look for which can give me a clue as to the country of origin, I would greatly appreciate it.
