DVD Verbatim

Yo!

I always trusted Verbatim... I used only Verbatim+R (MCC04).
Today I bought another cake of Verbatims... they change the appearance? I was a little confuse so I checked it with DVD Identifier... the ID is "MCC 03RG20".
Do you use Verbatim, did you have packs with this Manufacturer ID? They are worth it or... ?
badai
it's the same with MCC04. gred A media manufactured by mitsubishi chemicals. all verbatim dvd start with MCC and MKM are gred A media manufactured by mitsubishi chemicals (MCC) and mitsubishi kagaku (MKM).

be aware, some of verbatim are gred C media. these are their ID:

CMCMAGD01, CMCMAGE01, CMCMAGF01, CMCMAGM01 and CMCMAGR01

verbatim do not make their own disc and always switching their source from mitsubishi to CMC and pack it in the same exact pacakage. so, to be on the save side, you should just buy dvd brand that manufacture their own gred A dvd, which is pinoeer, mitsubishi, taiyo yuden, hitachi maxell, sony and TDK.
