From the Manufacturer

Verbatim AZO DVD DL Media

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?

About Verbatim's AZO Technology

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 high-speed recording.

What does all this mean for you? Verbatim AZO technology translates into optical products that cost just a little more but are worth the slight difference. They are products you want—offering reliability, high read and write performance, high-quality photos and sound and superior archival protection that lasts.

Things to Consider

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I record over video/audio/data stored on a DVD R DL disc?

No. DVD R DL discs are dual layer DVD’s designed for one-time recording.

Do DVD R DL discs require a special DVD burner?

Yes. DVD R DL discs require double layer writers for recording. Verbatim DVD R DL are approved for high speed burning, up to 6X speed, allowing you to store up to 8.5GB of video in approximately 16 minutes.

Will a DVD R DL play in my regular DVD player?

Yes. Verbatim DVD R DL discs are compatible with most DVD video players and DVD-ROM drives.

What does the plus and dash found in the format mean?

When DVD media technology was first developed, the plus and dash formats used different writing and reading specifications. Today, most DVD writers and readers now work with no noticeable performance differences between plus and dash formats. Check with your manufacturers’ suggestion of DVD format for the best compatibility—especially in older technology.

So how do I know which DVD to use?

Recordable optical media is a natural choice for data archiving and backup. Choosing a DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL is ideal, as these write-once discs hold twice the capacity of standard DVDs as well as preventing contents from being erased or mistakenly replaced. Double layer discs are also a great option simple data backup when saving larger files.

Archive vs. Backup – What’s the Difference?

Archive

The word archive conjures up thoughts of old, dark libraries or musty basements. However, today’s version of archiving is much different. Archiving digital files simply means creating a safe storage place for important files. Archived data is often a permanent record that is moved, not copied, from one system to another and retained for a specified period of time. Archiving is an easy activity that preserves your data with just a little preparation.

It’s best to have several copies of your digital archives to store in different locations. That’s why Blu-ray discs, DVDs and CDs are a natural choice for archiving. They’re inexpensive, portable and easy to store. Make sure you are using the right disc--the disc name you use should have an R on the end meaning it is write once. A write once disc prevents you from erasing contents or mistakenly replacing data. Also, to extend the life of your disc, consider Archival Grade media that include a gold layer that is naturally resistant to corrosion offering greater protection than standard silver discs.

Backup

You probably leave your digital files tucked away on your computers’ hard drive—assuming they are safe. But what if your computer crashes or files get corrupted somehow? You might lose your digital photos, music and data. Forever. Good news—it is simple to backup your digital files and you can have working copies that are quickly accessible. Getting started is easy; it only requires a backup routine performed regularly and a safe place to store your digital files.

BD-RE, DVD-RW/-RAM and CD-RW discs are a great choice for quick back-ups. Re-writable media allows you to add and edit content. This works well for constantly changing information.

Storage

Whether creating an archive or a backup, always remember to store your discs in a sleeve or case. This will help ensure they are protected from fingerprints, accidental spills, dust and debris, protecting your files for decades to come.

The ideal way to store discs is in an upright (like a book) position in a CD/DVD/Blu-ray case. Ideally, discs should be stored in a location 60-75 degrees F with 35-50% relative humidity. Fluctuations in the storage area should not exceed +/- 2 degrees F. in temperature; relative humidity should not fluctuate more than +/- 5%.

I have bought and burned over 200 of these discs and I have never had a bad disc! Today the blank media market has been flooded with cheap discs that won't work after a few uses or even burn properly! However, this specific blank media is still high quality and won't fail.

Style Name: 30-Disc Verified Purchase
This was my first experience using double layer media for burning, so while I have no reference points to go by, I must say I've not had a bad disc so far. I promise to update this review if things begin to change.

I have two versions of Nero (6 and 8) on two very different computers, and I've noticed that they both automatically lower the burn rate to 4X (though I can pump it up to 6X on Nero 6) and wonder if speed accounts for the fact that "lesser" brands fail more often. I even have one of the hated Sony burners in my Core Duo 2 laptop with Nero 8, and it works, despite being HUGELY slower than with a Lite-On drive installed in my ancient AMD64 desktop.

My only gripe with this product is, oddly, what drew me to it in the first place: the price. At $40.48 for a 30 pack you're looking at $1.35 per disc. I find it hard to believe that in this day and age, when the product cycle for optical discs of this sort is quite mature, that it costs this much to produce them. Can it really be more than double the cost of two single layer discs which can be had for 20 to 30 cents each at fairly reliable quality? Perhaps...I've never made them myself. I will conclude in Verbatim's defense that this is the lowest price point short of the widely maligned Memorex discs. That's why I chose them, and all in all I'm quite happy.

P.S.--It might be interesting to hear from those who have used both these and the cheaper Memorex discs to see if patterns in why things head south do so. I'll let you know if I decide to bite the bullet and try the competition at some point.

Verbatim DL used to be by far the best DL media available. Reliable, stable in storage, and consistent high quality made by Mitsubishi in their Singapore plant, one of the highest quality DVD production plants in the world.

Not any more. Verbatim has outsourced a large part of their DL production to a plant in India, and now when you buy this media you have a high chance of getting made in India - this product is poor, often with obvious physical defects in the media like bubbles, holes and foil delaminates.

It is possible to still find made in Singapore cakeboxes on store shelves, but if you can't actually read the disk label before buying you are rolling the dice when you buy.

It is a real shame Verbatim does not offer the Singapore product as a diferent grade. It would be worth a few extra bucks to get a cakebox that had a 95% success rate vs. the 50% rate the made in India product gives.

Verbatim has really gotten a black eye in my book with this stunt.

Update: (Dec 17 2014)

Well Verbatim is up to it's old tricks, now they are shipping stuff from the United Arab Emirates. The word is out that the UAE is also inferior quality that is hit or miss when it comes to burning success.

Insist on Made In Singapore. Yes it's more money than the junk but junk is actually worth less than zero.

I do a lot of DVD burning, I won't mention any competitors all I will say is that I NEVER have had a Verbatim disk fail on me. If it fails its usually my fault. I have had great success with the Verbatim +R DL disks.

I saw that review claiming Verbatim aren't reliable any more because some are made in India now - BS.
I just checked my old cake box and it was made in India, but had no coasters.
Regardless, I recently ordered another and got the Singapore manufacturer this time and so far so good.
No matter which you get India or Singapore you're gold!
Verbatim is still the best way to "BACK UP" your Xbox 360 games.

20 discs and not a single coaster. I'm not sure what better a review I can give to blank optical media than that.

For reference, my discs were burned using Toast 8 Titanium on a Intel Core Duo iMac Superdrive.

My friends and I have a lot of experience writing DVDs. Even with a top rated DVD burner, the double layer writing is a little tricky and, as far as I am concerned, Verbatim is the ONLY choice. It works almost every time with very few failures. One time I bought a 50 stack of another brand because they didn't have the Verbatim in stock. I gave up trying to get a good write and threw them away. Don't waste your money on any other brand.
