CMC’s own 16x media isn’t a good design, or is badly manufactured.
When CMC makes OTHER people’s media, it can be good.
Verbatim’s designs are good, and CMC does a good job of making them.
When we told you that Verbatim’s media is good/better than others, that means:
Genuine Verbatim media (MCC…, MKM…) made in India (by Moser Baer), Singapore (by MCC/MKM itself), UAE (by FTI/Falcon Tech), Taiwan (by CMC, or some old discs by Prodisc), or China (by Taiwan) is all probably going to be better than other media.
Verbatim (MCC/MKM) media made by Moser Baer is often better than Moser Baer’s own media.
Verbatim (MCC/MKM) media made by FTI/Falcon Tech is usually just as good as FTI’s own media.
Verbatim (MCC/MKM) media made by CMC is often better than CMC’s own media.
Verbatim (MCC/MKM) media made by Prodisc was often better than Prodisc’s own media.
Use the Verbatim media. It is probably better.
