50 high-grade non-rewritable DVD-R inkjet printable discs with a one hundred year archival life and OEM drive certified

Top Positive Review

These Verbs are my second choice for discs not far in performance and reliability behind my favorites (different brand). The burns on this product are very satisfactory with very few coasters (perhaps 1 or 2 every 100 discs). Printable white surface accepts and absorbs ink extremely well and dries in no time. Very good price for the quality of this item. The only minor drawback for me (and to some, it probably isn’t an issue at all) are that these disc are not hub printable (printed surface runs all the way to center hole). What may be an issue for some folks, are that these discs are rated for 8x burning speed, which might mean you should find something else to do while these are burning (if you have a life, there are better things to do with your time than waiting for a S-L-O-W burn) LOL! :>) I always burn my video data at 8x anyway, I had read at the New Dawn forum that burning at slower speeds result in data with better reproduction quality that will last considerably longer over time with no worries of pixelating video and/or audio erosion. Don’t know if that’s gospel truth or not, but I can say my DVD library has stuff I’ve burned from ’04 and they still play great! Nevertheless, a solid value and highly recomended!

Top Critical Review

These printable DVD are ok. The colors are nice and bright, but mine never fully dry.. .even after weeks! Just one swipe over the art with your finger and you get smears and finger prints galore. My DVD labels are always graphic intensive, so maybe it would be different if you were just printing words (or maybe even using a different printer/ink), but using the standard ink on the Canon MX922, you get smears and fingerprints whenever you touch it. I know they aren’t water proof, or even water resistance, but you would think they would at least dry and only smudge if your fingers were wet. It’s not bad enough that I’ll throw these away, but it does bother me enough that I probably won’t purchase them again. Sad, cause the price was really good 🙁

Customer Questions & Answers

can i use a Brother mfc-j825dw printer?
Answer: I use a Epson Stylus Photo R280 printer, so I cannot answer your question. My DVD’s look professional. If your specs state that you can use the Brother’s printer they should appear quite nicely.

These discs say 4.7 gb, but all data storage is a bit off, sometimes by about a half gig even. What’s the real average data amount per disc?
Answer: The amount of actual storage depends on how well your data fits the nominal 2048 byte sectors and any variability in the manufacturing process. The minimum amount of raw storage has to be 3.95GB. There is also overhead for disc management. See http://www.osta.org/technology/dvdqa/dvdqa6.htm for a more detailed discussion.

What is the media code on these?
Answer: The MID/DID/Manufacturer ID/Disc ID on these discs is MCC 03RG20. They are NOT CMC junk. The DataLife Plus series was always designed to be higher quality Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation discs.

Has anyone had any luck with printing on these discs using a Canon PIXMA MX922?
Answer:

This is not directly answering your question but rather giving you my opinion about the disc itself. If you have printed on regular printable discs before with your printer and the picture is so-so, a good picture but not vibrant, well these discs bring out the “Vibrant”!! I have printed several hundred of these disc??

can I use an Epson Artisan 810 printer?
Answer:

I use a 730. It does great. I have printed about 50 labels (that’s all I do with this printer), and still have the original ink cartridges going. I design my lables so they don’t use a lot of ink, for example I don’t do full backround with a solid color. Make sure your printer is set to CD/DVD Premium surface for the A??
