    Default Verbatim DVD+R DL Still Made in Singapore

    I picked up Verbatim DVD+R DL discs today and shocked to discover they still made in Singapore, not Taiwan. Verbatim #94912 0705-102. Despite the packaging indicating 2.4x at the bottom of the front cover it says "up to 6x". Cost: $30 for 10. I just hope Verbatim don't stop Singapore producing these.

    You probably found a place that still has some old stock, which is good.

    I've read rumours of some Verbatim +R DL being made in Taiwan, but I haven't seen any.
    My responses 1) presume you own the original retail disc you are attempting to backup, 2) tend to represent myself only, and 3) do not necessarily represent the views of SlySoft nor its developers. I do not work for SlySoft.

    Maybe I should stock up while they are available, because the changes in manufacturing are usually pretty sudden - one day Made in Singapore, next day Made in India - no warning. I have stayed away from the Verbatim -R DL as recommended. These ones say "up to 6x *". The * denotes "up to 6x speed with compatible with high speed DVD+R DL drives". I too have heard of DL's being made in Taiwan too, but no sign yet. I recently found out TDK (which I used for a couple of years with no issues) sold off their media division to Imation - bit of a shock that one.
