I bought two of these 20-pack spindles at Best Buy, same silver colored discs, same packaging and same UPC codes but one was made in India and the other one was made in Singapore. Tested in 3 DVD burners and didn't see any difference in write quality between the discs made in Singapore and the ones made in India. These are the best dual layer discs I have ever used, expensive but worth it for the quality.

Tested with these three burners: Pioneer DVR-111D (Firmware 1.29), Samsung TSSTcorp SH-S182D (firmware SB06) and Sony DRU-190a (firmware 1.65). Write Quality was best using Pioneer DVR-111D.

Please see disc quality scores below:

1) Nero Disc Quality Scan with Verbatim MKM 001 (made in India) burnt 7.59GB movie at 2.4x speed with Pioneer DVR-111D:

Nero. Sometimes a blank disc would not burn in my Pioneer DVR-111D. Ejecting the disc and re-inserting it again usually fixed the problem. If that didn't work, rebooting and starting Nero again would always fix the problem.
Works fine on Sony DVP-NS725P

Utter garbage. Gets recognized in some burners, not recognized in others. In the one's it gets recognized, it may or may not burn, but will never play. Not the media it used to be.

Watch out people!. There are two versions. Made in Singapore seem to be better (haven't tried yet) but the ones i got from India are terrible. Tried all different speeds on 2 different writers. Pioneer 111D and BenQ1655. The Pioneer shows 2.4x, 4x, 6x and 8x while the Benq only has 2.4x. Tried all speeds. Benq won't burn at all, power calibration error right at the start, Pio will burn at 2.4 and 4 but the Pif failures on second layer make it go below quality of 50 in nero cd-dvd speed. Terrible. STAY AWAY!

Followup: They seem to burn OK at 4X. The first few worked at 6X, then I got 3 coasters in a row. The Pioneer firmware allows 8X which works on the Singapore media but not the India.

Comments posted by MrMoody from United States, May 25, 2007:
Media code is similar to Verbatim Singapore product, but these are inferior. Beware the Made In India label. 2 coasters out of 12 so far, they don't like being burned close to the edge. Seem usable if your image isn't too close to the limit. Play OK if they verify OK. Never had a coaster with the Singapore discs. Singapore discs bear the words DOUBLE LAYER on the top, these do not, and note slightly different code block.

While burning at 8x, it stopped at 72%. In that case, the burner becomes not responding, and only a reboot of the computer can solve the problem. Should try burning at a lower speed.

No problems burning three discs so far; Nero CD-DVD Speed v4.60 Quality Scan data is as follows:

Total/Avg/Max PiE, Total/Avg/Maximum PiF, Glitches removed, Nero score

#1: 696304/25.84/181, 1775/0.09/7, 0, 96
#2: 884201/32.25/363, 782/0.06/7, 0, 96
#3: 31189/2.10/14, 700/0.03/2, 0, 95

#2 seemed to regress a bit from #1, but look at my 3rd burn -- average PiE = 2.10!!! And of course, the PiFs are great. Note that #1 and #2 were scanned in my BenQ DW-1650, and #3 was scanned in my Lite-On SHW-1635s. Also, I burned one of these in the Lite-On -- it wasn't so good -- I'll stick with the BenQ.

I have uploaded snapshots of these scans here if you wish to browse:

Burns well in NEC3500A and LG H22N @ 4x. Scans well in a Benq DW1650. Reads fine in all standalones.

To the person who was disappointed that they weren't Taiyo Yuden. Firstly, if it's made in Singapore, it's pretty much a given that it won't be a TY. Secondly, MIS Double Layers are the best of breed of all Double Layer discs.. why are you even disappointed? Finally, Verbatim have never even touched TY dual layer (-R DL) discs.. so why would you even expect them to be TY?
