2 out of 5 eggsVerbatim Quality Control In Question?

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: It's been awhile since I have bought any Verbatim 97000 Dual Layer 50 packs. The ones I have bought in the past burned flawlessly. No complaints at all.

Cons: However, I am now concerned about all the complaints I am seeing about these discs. This seems to have happened since Verbatim switched plants from Singapore to UAE and other countries. Judging from people's reviews of good to terrible for the same discs, it appears to now be hit and miss as far as quality control and what you get. The luck of the draw, so to speak.

Other Thoughts: My biggest concern is all of the major stores, including New Egg, will not take them back (refund) once you open the pack and find a good number of the discs fail in burning. I.e., you are on your own. How else can you find out you got a spindle full of defective discs without opening the pack and finding a good number of the discs fail in burning? It seems the customer is out of luck with no recourse, other then to just suck it up if you get a $50 spindle of defective discs. What is the current situation? Has Verbatim cleaned up their act, or are they still putting out defective discs? I rated two eggs based on complaints I see from other customers which I think is fair. Personally, I am afraid to order any more until I see better reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsNot what they used to be

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: Past experience has been excellent with DVD's made in Singapore.

Cons: Last batch was made in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Had a 75% failure rate on the burner that previously functioned perfectly. The only change I made was is when I went from a Singapore made spindle I ran out) to one made in the UAE. Kind of hurts when you by 50 disc spindles and most are junk.

Other Thoughts: It used to be that Verbatim was the best and I gladly paid the price. Now it is no better than the cheapest DVD you can find.

5 out of 5 eggsBest you can get

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: Zero coasters and speedy burning. Have tried all the rest, including many off-brands, and am sticking exclusively with Verbatim AZO x 1 year +. Is hard to find spindles of 50 at 8x; appreciate your stocking them.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: These are the best.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective product

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: One will burn for every 2-3 discs

Cons: Only one will burn for every 2-3 discs

Other Thoughts: Do not order. Verbatim quality seems to have been compromised as purchased in past and worked. Burner works fine with same discs from other purchases so problem with discs, not burner.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: 50 places to put my coffee mug

Cons: Extremely high rate of failure

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 spindles of these discs on 5/22/2014. The first spindle, while not as reliable as the previous Verbatim 96577 discs, only produced 2 coasters. However, the second spindle, has already produced 4 coasters out of 7 burns, which constitutes a 57% rate of failure. Discs were burned at supported speeds (4x and 2.4x). Do not purchase these discs.

4 out of 5 eggsWill See...

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: Verbatim DL media.

Cons: Not made in Singapore

Other Thoughts: Just got the 50 pack (97000) after they were on sale from Newegg. They are in branded packaging. They are the newer discs (8X), not the older ones that I'm used to using (2.4X). As a result these are made in United Arab Emirates, not in Singapore. I usually have very good results with the Verbatim DL media, unlike the TDK DL media I got a while back. Those were horrible. So I will have to wait and see how these discs do. I will provide an update once I start burning.

5 out of 5 eggsNever gone wrong buying Verbatim

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: Been preferentially buying/using Verbatim optical media for more than a decade. I don't recall a single bad burn or failure-to-read that I can in any way blame on the media.
CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, BD-R
You generally pay a bit more for this brand but then you do tend to get what you pay for.

Speaking specifically about product ID 97000: I've been through at least 100 of these discs over the last two years alone with most of them being used for work-related activities, and I just bought another 50-pack after having run out yet again.

Cons: Generally pricier than alternative products.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. Accept no substitutes.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Flawlessly

This review is from: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB 8X with Branded Surface - 50pk Spindle

Pros: This is my 2nd purchase of these discs and I have never had one coaster. I use this discs in a Memorex burner and two different Sony burners for both DVD video and data discs with no errors whatsoever. I highly recommend these for reliability and for those who need a lot of permanent, long-term storage.

Cons: Verbatim's media tends to run on the higher end of the price spectrum but they are worth every penny.
I hope to see some 16x DL DVD+R sooner than later! It takes about 20 minutes to burn a full 8GB disc.
