Good Recordable Optical Media With No Problems Thus Far

  • Dec 5, 2012

I got this spindle specifically for an additional backup of my photos. From my previous experience with Verbatim DVDs I've gotten the impression that they are some of the most reliable recordable optical media that I've used, good enough for most of my archiving purposes. I chose these DVDs based on their Amazon reviews and ratings, and so far I have not been disappointed.

Since I got them I've gone through about a dozen DVDs and have not had a single corrupt disk. I've burnt all of the DVDs on two of my Mac computers - one with an internal superdrive and one with an external USB-attached superdrive. I've tested the burned DVDs on both my Mac and Windows computers, and they have all worked just fine.

Overall, these are very solid DVDs. No optical media will hold your precious data forever, but these DVDs will probably keep it safe for as long as there are DVD drives out there, and quite possibly much longer. In general for backup purposes I recommend having at least two different options - a dedicated external HD and some optical media. And for the latter I in general recommend Verbatim products.

What did you think of this review?

About this product


The Verbatim AZO recording layer gives our DVD media the competitive advantage-the patented coating delivers protection that lasts generations and provides ultimate resistance to UV light damage. That's why Verbatim's been recognized as the No. 1 Optical Brand in the World*--we consistently provide optical media of the highest quality and compatibility. When drive manufacturers test their products for maximum performance, they use Verbatim--so why wouldn't you?

Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM), Verbatim's parent company in Japan, brings extensive technological research and development to the table. Core technologies, like the AZO recording layer give Verbatim an offering like no other optical manufacturer. This unique and ultra-stable layer strongly resists UV light, withstands high laser and rotation speeds on newer drives and ensures compatibility with current DVD standards.

Verbatim's AZO recording layer not only withstands the extremely high laser and rotation speeds of newer drives, it also maximizes their performance. Verbatim paid particular attention to the durability and light fastness of AZO; tests show that it is more stable than most recording dyes and the least affected by ultraviolet light.

AZO also offers high sensitivity for reliable high-speed recording and high reflectivity to eliminate read errors. The thinness of the recording layer is also critical. The thinner the layer, the higher the sensitivity and power margin; therefore, the better the DVD works for...
