Today when I bought Verbatim BD-RE 2x, after opening I saw few differences. When I put it in burner, I saw it have CMC MID? Anybody else had experience with these?
I will post photos later.
Not a huge surprise.
The vast majority of Verbatim BD-RE and -R media (with Verbatim’s MIDs, made from Japanese materials with MKM’s know-how) is already being produced by CMC Magnetics and Verbatim is probably trying to cut a few cents by selling media completely designed by CMC Magnetics and made from cheaper materials.
Here are the pictures. Difference I notice is that there is not “SERL” on the front label, and disc label is full printed (no translucent center). I hope disc will be stable.
