Verbatim DVD-R 16X recordable disc is backed by the popularity of its name - Verbatim. Each disc is made with Premium A+ Grade, AZO dye (genuinely made by Verbatim/Mitsubishi) and recording layer materials to ensure reliable recording and playback function. The embedded media code is (TYG03) and uses the 3rd Generation dye from Mitsubishi (parent company of Verbatim) that was one of the first to achieve 16X recording on the DVD-R format. 16X recording allows you to create a full disc in just under 6 minutes. We guarantee that these discs are authentically made and branded by Verbatim, not the fakes that just use the same media code, sold by other eBay sellers, beware! If you don't want to pay for Taiyo Yuden's (the best media in the world), the next best thing when it comes to DVD medias would be Verbatim.
