The Verbatim ( lite on ) with a verbatim sticker has three barcodes ( on the contents sticker, on the side of the box ) and serial # 2112239013243.

The Verbatim ( lite on ) with a lite on sticker has two barcodes ( on the contents sticker, on the side of the box) and serial # 232307004110.

Both boxes use the same part#, and I did not notice any other differences in the boxes, hope this helps :smiley: .

Went down and they were sold out, but got a raincheck. When they got more in, looked at the serial, no letters. Opened it up expecting it to say Verbatim on the tray door…nothing. Took it out of the bubble wrap and behold, right on top— Lite-on model # 52246S. Just got a 52X Lite-on in a Verbatim box for $20! Thanks for the tip!
