Two Verbatim CDRs - Different origins. Which is better?

Hey,

I picked up two Verbatim cdrs today with intetions to examine the which one performs better.
One is “Made in India” and the other is stated as “Goods of EU origin”.
Though i’m not sure as to the position if the latter…
To two look exactly the same:
Both Verbatim DataLifePlus certified for 48X.

.

Now, i’m considering the best way of action to be taken in order for this test to be as objective as it can get is to write both with Audio at 12X Track-At-Once.

Does anybody think that better results could be achieved with other conditions such as: Higher/Lower writing speed, or a different mode such as Disc-At-Once…?

I’d like it if you contribute your thoughts.

Thanks.

The “Made in India” ones should be made by Moser Baer India and are pretty average media, nothing spectacular. However I am unsure as to the maker of those which are “Goods of EU origin”.

Wouldn’t it easier if NOVA just posted those ATIPs as well as scan results ?

These CD-Rs are most likely produced at the former KODAK production plant in Ireland.

Last year, after KODAK has stopped producing CD-Rs, a lot of Verbatim DataLifePLUS CD-Rs
were available that were “Made in Ireland”. They got replaced by CD-Rs that are “Goods of EU origin”.

GF had finished the testings.
Both cds were written at 12X and at TAO mode with Audio.

Both had the same ATIP (none made by MBI)…

Made in India
