The Verbatim MediDisc™ CD-R & DVD-R

Postby frank1 on Tue Jul 10, 2007 2:22 am

The Verbatim MediDisc™ CD-R (700 MB storage capacity with 52x write speed)
and the Verbatim MediDisc™ MediDisc™ DVD-R (up to 8x write speed)

What do the experts here think about these storage medias claimed as "reliable" for medical datas ?
Do you think that they will be available soon for the public at a reasonable price ?

A other question: are they manufactured by MKM in Singapour or in Taiwan or even in India ?

The Verbatim MediDisc™ is extremely robust and reliable due to its innovative surface technology.

Last I heard, the MediDisc was made by CMC for Verbatim. As for the claims, I can't say for sure, but it's supposed to be one of their better discs. I could probably request samples and try them out if you like?

Is there some unofficial (or official) standard that says discs that are certified for medical use have to look like that? I have some Maxell Medical DVD-Rs and the design and color scheme are remarkably similar to the MediDisc pic.

There are certain requirements yes.

Thanks a lot for the details
I just hope that we will be able to get in Europe some of these Verbatim MediDisc™ DVD's sometimes in the near future.
As anybody an idea about which type of shop may sell them ?
Probably not nierle.com or ?
