No, they aren’t as compatible with as many DVD burners as the Verbatims. And the current 8x TDK-branded DVD+R DL’s could be RICOHJPN D01 (if made by Ritek) or CMC MAG D04 (if made by CMC Magnetics). Thus, the quality of the TDK DL’s is a crapshoot at best - and if you can get a good burn on those TDKs (and have all of your standalone DVD players play movies burned to such media without locking up or skipping), then more power to you!

I’ve used RICOHJPND00 and RITEK D01 sold as TDK. There is no easy way to distinguish between the two without opening the package as both MIDs are produced by Ritek. Results are medicore at best with both MIDs.

In Europe, TDK DVD+R DLs are mostly RICOHJON D01c made by UAE atm.

I cant say anything about the quality though.

And even those may not be safe:
