What is the best DVD+R DL?

Recommended Posts

Verbatim makes the best.  But, don't get the Verbatim Life series you can find in stores.  They're CMC, the worst optical disc manufacturer out there.  You'll want the DataLife Plus series.



What country are you in?  If you're in the United States, I can forward you the link to Amazon.com where I buy mine.  They're MCC, which is Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, one of the best makers there is.

Well, to be honest, I don't know.  Something's weird with that web page.  It doesn't display information normally as other Amazon.com pages do.



These are the ones I got and know they're MKM's, e.g. MCC.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DT6OWFG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1



The only problem I had with these is they won't burn in my Pioneer correctly.  They fail at or shortly after the layer break.  Which makes NO sense since the MID is the same for unbranded DVD+R DL's from Verbatim and they burn fine in the Pioneer.  I have to burn the inkjet printable ones in my LG.



These are the branded ones that do burn in the Pionner: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005F2YPH2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1



Both of those that I linked are MKM's from Verbatims.  Verbatim is pretty much the only DVD+R DL of any quality.  The only others I ever used were some TDK discs made by Ritek.  They burned okay but I don't know of their longevity.  My 2009 burns of Dawn Of The Dead to a Verbatim DVD+R DL still played on Halloween when I last played it.
