hi: I have been purchasing Verbatim dvd-r's (94854) from Newegg for sometime. This media is made in Taiwan. Meritline has the same exact media albeit for $5 more but their product says made in Singapore. I have read a number of posts that say to avoid media (in general, not verbatim) made in Taiwan or Hong Kong and buy media made in Japan or Singapore. While I have been very happy with the Newegg Taiwanese media does anyone know if the made in Singapore are better, more reliable over time etc? Thanks. Regards..
