MCC 03RG20 is a fake media?

    Hello guys

    I'm new here, so, sorry for any mistakes (and eventually for my english) =p

    I bought 3 types of media today: Memorex 16x (CMC MAG. AM3), Smartbut 8x (ProdiscF01) and Verbatim 16x (MCC 03RG20).

    But I saw that that Verbatim ID means that it's a faked media, is it true? I saw at digitalFAQ that actually that's an awesome type of DVD, but I'm not sure.

    Also, I would like to know if that Memorex really sucks, everywhere I look they say that CMC MAG. AM3 is not a good one. My friend took some tests on Nero Speed and I saw great results, really great (and that media was like 1 month old).

    I typically wouldn't worry about Verbatim. Verbatim results are indefinitely better than what you can get off of a regular CMC MAG from Memorex although TDK CMC MAGs are truly 1000% better personally for me than Memorex CMC MAGs but that doesn't mean much considering both give pretty bad results anyway. Just make sure you buy your Verbatim DVDs from reliable places, and you'll surely get what you desire and purchased. There are, of course, the rare instances where you can simply get a bad batch despite the media ID listed.

    Edit: And well, it's really up to you. Memorex usually are bad. The good ones just aren't as apparent and in quantity as much as the bad ones you'll get (outsourcing). The ratio is astronomically to an easy 1000 to 1 chance perhaps depending on what bundle you buy especially in the 16x DVD garbage expletives you can easily get for cheap although it probably defers where you're at and such on what you'll actually get. No matter what, if I purchase a 16x canister, I'll find a gold mine of CMC MAGs with hardly any rewards.
