Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim



O.K, so which would you go for from SVP (no past probs from svp),

Taiyo Yuden (8x) Unbranded DVD-R, (don’t care if they’re only 4x as long as they’re genuine Taiyo)
Verbatim (4x) Pastel Coloured DVD-R (With excellent Taiyo Yuden dye)

I’ve an 8x writer but 4x is fast enough for me, my main concern is disc lifespan, they are solely for dvd backups.

What does anyone think?


If you don’t care about speed, get whatever discs are cheaper!
The quality of most Taiyo Yuden discs are very similar. (excellent)


Taiyo are £64.99 for 100 tub
Verbatim are packs of 5 jewels at £2.75 so 100 are £55.00

If people think they offer the same quality longevity then I’d probably use the verbatim.


TY, of course.


you didn’t read the post did ya cereberus? But generally spoken there is NO difference in quality amongst the Taiyo yudens ( except for the fakes then… :wink: ), so i would go for the cheapest!
