welcome to the forum!
Personally, I would buy the MIUAE Verbatims - I have nothing but a good experience with FTI made media.
By the way, what drive did you use for quality scanning of all those media (Ritek G05, etc.)?
[QUOTE=kievrus;2515500]I have been using verbatim DVD+R 16x CMC Mag M01(MIT) life series lately (burned ok, played well on “old” player) untill I saw some defect inside , really maybe just more estetic, as “incide ring dye edge was not really very round”. I switched to Maxell DVD-R 16 x Ritek F1, because someone told me long ago Maxell where good. I did not like much as at one computer they did not burn at 16x but 8x. Though after checking my DVDs with Nero disk quality scan I was totally confused. None Verbatim or Maxell really showed good results, some Verbatim even showed 0% quality score. Checked old DVDs(RitekR03002, Ritek G05, MMC 004, TYG 02(Esperanza) …others, like 6 years ago burned with another burner, also very different results up to 0%. Probably those had zero that had small scraches.THOUGH all new and old DVDs play good at players and computers. Was in local shop: they have Verbatim DVD+R 16x made in India and DVD-R 16x made in UAE, really dont know what to buy now. Maybe to get Maxell, because they showed at least stable results though not high either. Please advise what to do. What is better producer of Verbatim with Azo dye India or UAE?[/QUOTE]
