That's CDR is Taiyo Yuden's official brand. It is sold in the Far East market only. As far as I understand, there is no difference in quality between it and unbranded OEM Taiyo Yuden available here in the US.
Re-branded TY may be subject to mishandling, though - there have been complains about Fujifilm media, for example.
As for Verbatim DataLifePlus, it is top of the line media, second only to TY. The problem is with the drive/firmware, lower the burning speed and see for yourself. CMC may be a crapshoot - one batch may last 10 years, another six months. That's why you pay extra for premium media - for the peace of mind.
