    Before anyone disses the Taiwan 16x verbs, I never get bad burns however Singapore Dual layers are the only ones to be trusted!

    I bought one spindle, they were made in Taiwan, good quality disks. I don't think I have seen any Made in Singapore Single layer, just the DL variety.

    I don't remember seeing MIS single layer Verbs either. +R DL yes & they burn great in my Samsung.

    After I posted that remark, I searched and found that the made in Singapore disks are just the DL variety.

    All of the Verbatim DVD+R 16x I have seen at Office Max where I am have been MITs.
    When the "New Packaging" 1st came out, there weere a few MII in the mix, but lately they have all been MITs. Very good media too!

    Just came back from Sam's. Noticed they had verbatim +R DL 50 spindle for $59. Not a bad price. I passed. Still have a 20 spindle that I paid $30 for. That's 10 free ones on the 50 spool.

    Just a heads up for you Verbatim users. Buy.com has Verb.16X +Rs for $18.49 per 100 spindle shipped! Their sales usually only last about a week so you'll have to hurry. Happy burning.

    That sounds like a great deal over that side of the pond, the cheapest we brits can get Verb 100's for is around £18 i think..

    I thought it sounded pretty good too. I use the Ty watershield printables myself but at 18.5 cents each these are pretty hard to pass up.

    @Garmoon.
    These are one of my top choices, right behind TY and Verbs. Never had a problem with them, no coasters and good playability. I have only used the Taiwan variety though, not the Malaysia ones.

    hi garmoon. me too on the sonys. Used their dvd-rs 16x from Taiwan. no problems. yet to use the sony dvd+rs. let me know how you fair w/them. Staples usually has the Sonys on sale for about $30 bucks more or less.

    I have still some verbs from Office Max I got on their last sale. They're dvd+rs and came off w/out a hitch. bitset n all w/imgburn.

    the tys that came w/dust were tape wrapped? Usually the spindles n cake boxes are better. Got to look out for value line as opposed to premium also. big difference.
