Which is better Verbatim or Sony + 16x?

#1

I can get either one for $15 for 50 (BB) and they are both made in Taiwan. I “assume” the Verbatim are MC004s and the Sonys are D21s. Will they both burn equally well in my DW1620? TIA

MCC004 is very good media, i haven’t tested D21. usually mcc woks great with benqs, i would get the verbs.


#3

I would agree with Chok0 unless the sony media is made in Japan.


#4

I’ve tested MCC004 Made in Taiwan and SONYD21 Made in Japan and Taiwan in some burners. They are great media. However, the MCC004 will show less errors especially @16x compared to SONYD21.


#5

I agree also with the Verbatims, MCC004 is real good, never had a coaster in over 100 burns.

When it comes to 16x DVD+R media, I’d prefer Verbatim (Mitsubishi) as well, for BenQ drives that is. Even the made in India MCC004s burn very nicely with my BenQ DW1650.

But for 16x DVD-R, I’d prefer Sony. Genuine Sony 16x DVD-R media (MID: SONY16D1), especially made in Japan or Austria, burns exceptionally well with my BenQ DW1650, even better than CMC made 16x DVD-R Verbatims (MID: MCC03RG20). Prodisc made MCC03RG20s burn worse, haven’t tested MBI made ones yet.

Ive had great luck with both. Better on the Sony’s if MIJ.


#8

Try to stay away from the Verbatim 004 from India…

Luckily, those have never shown up in the US.

While CMC made MCC004s definitely burn better than MBI made ones, and therefore should be prefered, there is actually no reason to warn others of the latter. The burn quality of those MBI discs is still very good, with my BenQ DW1650 at least, as can be seen here.
