Are your 8x +R Verbatims Made in Singapore, Taiwan (CMC or Prodisc) or India (MBI)?
Anyway I heard the TYs are easier to scratch, but I haven't tried scratching them because they're (especially the older 8x media) so rare and expensive here. They will have higher quality scores after burning but are more sensitive to heat and moisture in accelerated aging tests.
Both are excellent choices. For 16x media, it's something totally different though :iagree:
