Thanks, I knew OM was due to have Verbs on sale,

Glad I waited and passed on the TDK’s.


#6

Might have to go get yet another Verby 100 pack…:wink: Maybe they’ll finally have some of the UAE made disks in my store. Thanks Dalen!


#7

I must have the worst office max in the state …this will be like the 10th straight week with no ad from my store.

I’ll drop in and see if the verbs are on sale anyway…
Thanks for posting the deals

Thank you Dalen

My local OM will not price match the website. It has to be in the on-sale flyer.

I just got back from OM. They had 3 packs of UAE +R - I bought two and used a $10 off coupon. :wink:


#11

I’ve been testing both packs. Seems I’ve had my usual “Verbatim 50/50 luck.” One pack is great, but the other pack is landfill material. Scans coming shortly.


#12

Just tested the top disc from my UAE +R Verbatims from OM.

Here’s the scan
Burned @ 16X

Where do you get the $10.00 dollar coupon from?


#14

OM sent me on in the mail.


#15

Pack 1. It is garbage. I tried to burn with the IHAS 524, but it was never able to complete a burn out of three discs. I then tried on the Optiarc AD-7200.





#16

Another Pack 1 burn, this time with the LiteOn 20A4H. Everything off.





#17

Here is Pack 2, burned on the IHAS 524. SB on only.





#18

You might what to try to cross flash your LiteOn 20A4H drive to a DW2010. Some do get better results with MCC-004.


#19

I have a DW2000 around. I might try with it at some point, but I don’t think the drive is the issue here. Pack 1 just seems to be compromised on every burner I’ve tried so far. I burned on the 20A4H mainly because it wouldn’t burn on the 524, so I wanted to see if another LiteOn would burn it.


#20

I got a hundred pack of the minus at my store. Two pf my burners like them, 3 others so so or hate them. MCC-03RG20 and my Samsung S203b and my LG h62n crossed to a h66 like them a lot except they all seem to have high PIE values, but the PIF on those two was 99 scores with below 75 errors on each disk.
I posted the scan on the UAE disk thread if anyone cares. I have 6 burners in here for now so I can try a media till one likes it :cool:
