No need to shout. In my experience, MBI discs are pretty good, certainly better than most of the CMC out there.

About MBIL
It burns much better as CMC on most drives.
However MBIL has a reputation of rotting cd's.(PC -ACTIVE and some COnsumer magazines and real life experience.)
Infact I found most CMC pthalocyanine disc's to be more reliable.
So I can not recommend the media.
Both media didn't survive long in my sunlight test. Except for the MBIL EMTEC Ceram Guard cd's.
These cd-r's are supposed to be based on disc's of MBIL highest quality standard. OKay there much better as any normal MBIL media I encountered so far, but they can't match against old EMTEC Ceram Guards made by TY.

Taken from here:

http://www.imation.com/en_US/main.jhtml ... rategy.xml

...enabled Imation to invest approximately $100 million in future growth vehicles. These include $49 million for advanced metal particulate coating capabilities, $20 million for an exclusive global brand distribution agreement with Exabyte, $15 million for the acquisition of certain data storage assets of EMTEC Magnetics GmbH, $5 million joint venture investment with Moser Baer for the development of optical media products...

Sounds like we're going to be seeing a lot more MB media from Imation.
