Verbatim AZO DVD 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 (US Patent 7,989,139). That’s why Verbatim has been consistently recognized as providing optical media of the highest quality, reliability and compatibility. When drive manufacturers test their products for performance, they use Verbatim – so why wouldn’t you?
About Verbatim's AZO Technology
Verbatim’s AZO recording layer is a unique and ultra-stable layer that strongly resists UV light, withstands high laser and rotation speeds and ensures compatibility with current DVD standards. Verbatim paid particular attention to the durability and light fastness of AZO, making it 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 the discs you want, offering reliability, maximum read and write performance, especially with newer drives, and superior archival protection that lasts.
Provides superior performance and reliability, no matter what you are saving. This patented Mitsubishi technology is only available from Verbatim! (US Patent 7,989,139)
Verbatim manufactures our DVDs to meet our strict quality standards. We stand behind the quality of our products!
Optical drive manufacturers use our products to test their performance – so why wouldn’t you?
Things to Consider
What are the differences among the formats?
The differences are as follows:
DVD-R and DVD+R record data one time only, then the disc is only readable
DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM allow you to record and erase data multiple times
DVD-ROM only reads data; you cannot save to this disc
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 DVD media is a natural choice for data archiving and backup. Choosing a DVD+R or DVD-R is ideal, as these write once discs prevent contents from being erased or mistakenly replaced. Also, to extend the life of your DVD disc, consider Archival Grade DVDs, which include a gold layer that is naturally resistant to corrosion and offers greater protection than standard silver discs. DVDs are also a great option simple data backup. Using DVD+RW/DVD-RW or DVD+RAM/DVD-RAM re-writable media allows content to be added and edited as the information changes.
Archive vs. Backup – What’s the Difference?
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.
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.
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 just returned 3 packs at once, but luckily my latest pack seems much better and more like the quality you normally expect from these.
* I just wanted to update this review to say that I have since bought two more used DVD recorders that record with both DVD-R and DVD+R just so I don't have to fool with these DVD-R discs anymore. My newest DVD recorder would only record with DVD-Rs so I was stuck buying these for several years. It is so much less frustrating to be able to use the DVD+R discs if you are able to use that format. They come in the purple packaging and work like the Verbatim brand is known for.
With some trepidation, I sought a reliable alternative to TDK because no one wants to be using unreliable optical disks to archive computer data or to store precious photos and video files. I mention these facts because of several failures of SONY DVD-R disks I used for these purposes.
After reading Amazon reviews and taking into consideration Verbatim's excellent reputation, I chose to use these and have been happy ever since. Why? No disk failures!
Based on my experience, I recommend use of this brand to meet most archival storage needs.
What's more amazing is that the last third of the discs, is where all the problem discs are. So after burning 2/3rds with success. Now I run into problems. How do I return 17 discs out of 50?
There were also errors such as dark lines from the outside in. Which is all stuff you see in low quality discs that have bad batches. This isn't the Verbatim of quality that some may assume. This is garbage. Stay away from these and if you want to ignore what I say. At least verify your discs or you'll be sitting on a pile of bad burns and you won't even know it.
P.S. For what it's worth, my successful burns (that verify as good) still get a quality rating of 0 out of 100 in Nero's DiscSpeed "Disc Quality" test. Which means, even if you get a good burn. It may not last. They may be prone to decay quicker. Not bad now but as time goes by, they will become unusable or skip.
Pros: These are inexpensive. You can buy a lot for a reasonable price.
Cons: They do not hold as much data as BluRay. So if you are looking to store massive amounts of data, Single layer DVDs hold 4.7 GB. This product is single layer. Dual Layers hold double that. BluRays can hold multiple times those amounts (But you would need a BluRay burner.
Functionality: It is important to take note that there are two different types of Write-able DVDs "+R" and "-R". Nowadays, most DVD players are compatible with both. However, it is important to confirm that your player works with these before purchasing.
Durability: DVDs are more susceptible to scratching than BluRays are, but these have not given me any problems with regard to scratching.

Now to the price issue. They are NOT cheap and have been creeping up in price. I used to be able to buy them for $20 on sale. On Amazon the price is competitive if not just a teeny bit lower than elsewhere - but still HIGH.
They have a limited lifetime guarantee warranty. Can you name other DVD-R brands that offer the same? Does it matter?
Well most DVDs from any brand will burn and will appear just fine after the time of burning. The real test comes in the yet-to-be. Years later. This is the real issue. Time. With cheap DVDs you are likely to pay in the long term with an inability or access your files, data, media. You won't find out today or tomorrow but in several years from now. It's happened to me for bargains I bit into years go. Not a pleasant surprise years later.
The DVDs that have given me the least grief over the years? Yes the Verbatim ones. Perhaps this is why they offer the limited lifetime warranty. Also they are made in Taiwan and that is a very very very serious plus where I am concerned. The quality and reliability shows. I've got the 10 years of usage to confirm this.
You can use these discs in regular computer or laptop burners or you can use them in DVD recorders if you are lucky enough to still have one.
Just remember for DVD recorders it depends on it's age as to whether or not it recognizes or can burn a DVD-R and that is based in the firmware of the recorder. It is NOT THE fault of a DVD-R brand, but the firmware in the recorder. You need to stick to the speed and or brands recommended at the time the recorder came out. For much older recorders you may need to use 8x not 16x - check your recorders documentation or go on line to hunt for a manual. The good news is that amazon sells both max speeds.
So I am still very pleased with the Verbatim DVD-R discs but I am growling at the increasing price. For data and files that matter I will continue to stick with Verbatim, I've got over 10 years of positive re-enforcement to justify my decision.
So i tried these guess what its not my DVD player malfunctioning it was the DVDs from staples.
These are wicked and work fantastic.
Packaged in a thick solid plastic case. Great for creating Windows installation media, or storing away Steam games, or personal photos. Been using the Brand for more than 10 years now.
I may not burn many new videos to disk in the future but I am glad I have this 50 pack stack just in case I need copies of my previous original music videos.
La calidad del disvo permite transportarlo en su estuvhe y conservar la informacion vrios dias, con su devido cuiddo
With Verbatim DVD+R discs, I also have 12x and 16x options and they work well. In the future I will stick with the DVD+R flavor.
Still, this DVD-R flavor does work well at 8x, no coasters that way, and since I only write a disc every week or so I don't care if it takes 4 minutes or 8 minutes.
