"Verbatim DVD+RW 4X never fail"

I bought the first batch of Verbatim DVD+RW from Amazon in 2004 and then bought some more in 2006 from DigiUK.com.

Reliability

They are used as re-writable disc for temporarily storing holiday photos, documents, electronic statements/bills etc until nearly a DVD full --> burn into DVD+/-R disc. Also, they are temporary recording of TV programmes using my DVD recorder. Most of them are used regularly since 2004. Almost 5 years on none of them shows any sign of failure.

Everything is still retrievable e.g. one directory of my photos taken back in Dec 2004 and stored in a pair of them (double backup) are still okay. I can copy all the photos to my PC and still can see them (both discs tried to make sure). Therefore these discs can last for more than 4 years from the date of purchase, with the date of manufacture well before that. They have been tested on NEC ND3500 writer, Samsung SH-S182M writer, Liteon HD-740GX DVD recorder - all fine so far.


Media ID:

The media ID for both my 2004 and 2006 batches are MKM A02 and MCC 02RG20 respectively as detected by Nero DiscSpeed. On the videohelp.com website, the media ID MKM A02 got mixed results from 1 reviewer. For the media ID MCC02RG20, good results from the majority of 101 reviewers.

In contrast, I have bought some Imation DVD+RW and DVD-RW. They were awful.
That is another review.

Downside:

Of course the downside is that Verbatim DVD media are at a premium. For the 2004 batch, it was £9.99 for 10. Fortunately in 2006 I spotted a bargain by accident - £5.98 for 10 delivered.

    A useful review - but would be good to get more idea of what makes one DVD+RW disc better than another. Just why were those Imation ones that you mention so bad - did your drive refuse to read them or something? Regards, Mike.
