    There is nothing better. I don't know what the lifespan is though.

    Taiyo Yuden issued certificates of reliability in Europe in 2005. The claim for DVD-R was a life time in excess of 50 years. The life for CD-R was in excess of 30 years. How do you "know" that Taiyo Yuden far surpasses all other media? MAM-A claims 300 years for their CD-R and 100 years for their DVD-R. Eyring test models indicate that all these claims need to be qualified much better because test data show a spread of results within the same test batch of media.

    In fifty years there will still be some way to play these things?
    I can't even test my radio tubes at the drug store any more and my wax cylinders are infested with mulligrubs.

    PS if anyone needs 5.25 floppies in their sealed original package (Dysan), I have some.

    I have you beat on the 5.25" as I have a sealed carton of 8" disks plus the drive too.

    Sony and Phillips use several manufacturers and the quality of their media differs accordingly.

    The Yudens that I burned over a decade ago still play flawlessly . . .

    I have 2 dvd + r discs 16 Philips (ID: CMC MAG M-01 00)
    and I have 2 cds Smartbuy (Prodisc)
    cds and dvds were burned in 2013 and stored in the same location
    in 2016 I did a test with Nero DiscSpeed in CDs and DVDs, DVDs are 100% Good and cds had errors

    because there is this difference in the tests if they are stored in the same place?

    Taiyo Yuden used to be the best DVD-R you could get. But now I heard they're made by some other company so I just stick with Memorex. If you use really low burn speed (1x) and take care of them, they should last.

    Assuming they are genuine Verbatim with the AZO dye, you can't do better.
    Don't buy Verbatim "Value Series".

    It transfers the heating effect from the lazer to the recording layer better than other dyes.
    Do other manufactures use it? beats me but there is a conensus that the Verbatim disks that use it are superior to most all.
    Your links quote UK pounds, so if that's where you live I suggest the likes of Amazon over ebay - just for reputation.

    Interesting opinion on various brands and suggested purchase sites here.

    In my opinion (and experience) Taiyo Yuden discs have the best inkjet printable surfaces as well as the most reliable burning surface . . .

    Been burning for a long time . . .
