Ok thanks. I just found out yesterday after talking with the Verbatim Rep for Newegg, that Newegg is their biggest customer. She mentioned to me that the factory in India did have some quality control problems/errors that resulted in bad lots being distributed, but now the problem has be fixed awhile ago. It was a new plant for them and like any new facility, training and new help are always an issue.

Newegg only gets lots that are made in Singapore now. Distributors are not allowed to know where the lots come from, but Verbatim identifies the lots by the numbers after the part number, i.e. 95310-xx which can only be seen by Verbatim internally and is not printed anywhere. The individual Verbatim sales reps know which lots their customers received. Most of the ones from India were removed from Newegg, but there could be some around because they have 3 warehouses in the USA.

Singapore is a smaller facility and produces all the 'new' product. They are currently still producing the 95310 and 95484. India is also still producing the 95310 and these are distributed to other retailers too, which we didn't go into. By the way, currently the 95484 are only produced in Singapore. She would like us to try the newer India discs which she says are good now. But if you want to stick with Singapore, stick with Newegg.

I had a really nice conversation with her and was very impressed with her candor. She mentioned to me that one of Verbatim's management (Mitsibushi) lives near me and that if I did get a batch from India from Newegg (very unlikely) and was not happy with them, she would trade them out through him, for me. That was super nice.
Originally Newegg gave me her phone number after I posted a email question to them about their lots.

If I do oddly get a batch from India , I will certainly give Verbatim the benefit of doubt and test them.
