Verbatim DVD-R 4.7Gb - 4x Speed - Pastel Colours - Slim-line Jewel Cased?

Saw these for sale at a supplier of media, they claim these are MCC Verbs, just wondering if anyone has tried these & can confirm if that is correct?

Verbatim DVD-R 4.7Gb - 4x Speed - Pastel Colours - Slim-line Jewel Cased

The Price is very good compared to other places so if they are true MCC , i’ll be buying a sizeable amount :slight_smile:

Around here, if they say made in Singapore, they’re MCC. Made in Taiwan they’re CMC or Ritek, Made in Japan is TY. Verbatim sells all 3 types. Usually, they have to be DataLifePlus to be MCC, but that’s no guarantee either. Why don’t you buy a few and see? You might get lucky and find TY in there.

Yeah I think the pastel coloured ones sold in Europe are TY.

rdgrimes:

I would but shipping is a bit extortionate in the UK for sampling discs :frowning: .
Well seeing as the supplier claims the Pastel coloured ones are MCC on the website , i think it’s a safe enough buy, i may even get the fabled TY.
Their also selling the inkjet-printables at the same price which are supposed to be always MCC here in the UK so i’ll get some of both i think.
Thanks for the replys.

Just thought i’d post the reply to an e-mail i sent Verbatim Europe about these discs in case any european’s were looking for some good quality discs:

"Thank you for contacting Verbatim Europe Ltd.

Taiyo Yuden’s Drool , my quest for TY’s at a reasonable price is finally over.

Where did you see these please? I bought 5 (not yet tried on LiteOn 411S). Mine show as TY. To a newbie to this brand, is there a big difference between MCC and TY?

TY is better

For TY then, UK guys can pick up pack of 5 colour - or + for £5.99 at http://www.kvjfairdeal.com/. Look under Video, DVD and then the brand name.

They seem to have a fixed postage so bulk will be cheaper. Been to their shop which charges £6.99 - saving substantially on small quantities against the high postage.

Thanks for the link Devdeep & some more confirmation of the fact the discs are indeed TY. The supplier i found them at was actually more expensive than the price you found. £6.50 for a 5pack, which soon adds up if you buy in bulk.

           Actually, just realised, KVJ Fairdeal... I've been to their shop before to buy VHS tapes in the past :) 
      Wow, who would of thought a shop would finally beat the internet for blank media :)
