Don't know how these newegg verbatim -R will be, but my 100pk from Supermediastore had quite a few with dye defects that showed up after burning. Looked like dark spots with comet like tail radiating towards the disc edge. Unfortunately, I was too anxious and clipped the upc for the rebate before I got a chance to test the media. No upc = no rma through supermediastore. Guess I'll have to contact Verbatim direct.
If you people purchase these -R's, check them out before you clip the upc.
p.s. the 100pk of +R's that I ordered at the same time seem fine.
