    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 mean "not India" (by Moser Baer)

    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.

    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.
