Stupid question, but it’s bugging me cuz I don’t know, LOL. I’ve seen ppl say “PAPA Verbatims” and similar on the board. Please do not reply with Father or Dad, LOL.

“PAPA Verbatims” are made by CMC; these are a type of Verbatim 16x DVD+R, “PAPA” is the beginning of the stamped serial in the hub.

P = Plus (DVD+R)
A = Azo dye (MCC discs use Azo dye)
P = 16x speed
A = Production site A (is located in Taiwan; Verbatim 16x DVD+R also made in Mainland China site N = PAPN or Taiwanese site 6 = PAP6 these have a bad reputation)

Imagine a cdfreak who loves PAPA Verbatims and then they are all gone and he is left with PAP6/PAP7 , he goes to streets crying and yelling :

[B]I want my PAPA back [/B] :bigsmile:

Seriously though , PAPA Vebatims seems to be of excellent quality and very consistent spindle to spindle and disc to disc . We have lots of them here in Radioshack Egypt (MCC004 PAPA 2004 DLP) and although they are little bit more expensive than Panasonic TYG03 (excellent media BTW;)) , I will get as much as I can next week :clap:

I like Verbatim alot , but in my experience , consistency is a big issue with MCC these days .
Add to that outsourcing to India , newer packages are mostly bad and even TY acts badly when Verbatim branded :wink:
