100 years disk life does sound too good to be true.
I have heard Verbatim are very good though...
I just got a test here lately from the very rigorously testing Stiftung-Warentest.
the overall best in test was a Verbatim Rewritable disc -
most discs did poorly in terms of damage from light/UV except
the RW discs
which in turn did poorly in terms of damage from temperature fluctuation
the DVD+R discs in order:
|Maxell DVD+R 1-16x Xtreme Protek|
TDK DVD+R 1-16x Scratch Proof
Verbatim DVD+R 8x LightScribe
Intenso DVD+R 1-8x
Philips DVD+R 1-8x Lightscribe
Ricoh DVD+R Ultra Speed 1-16x
Aldi-Süd / Tevion DVD+R max 8x
Intenso DVD+R 1-16x
Verbatim DVD+R 16x Advanced Azo+
with that particular Maxwell well ahead of the posse
but I've reading a couple places (CDfreaks forum I think..) that Taiyo-Yuden make the best discs -
Plextor sell them rebranded, but they're hard to get - only a couple of suppliers here.
I got some lately & the quality is very impressive - I just mean how
it's made -
nice rounded edges (hey, they even smell
) but of course that doesnt necessarily mean much at the end of the day..
