Verbatim DatalifePlus CD-Rs in North America

Postby dolphinius_rex on Mon Jun 26, 2006 4:29 pm

Since people seem to have a REALLY hard time finding Verbatim DatalifePlus, I thought I'd post all of the Verbatim Part Numbers for them. Please keep in mind that this is internal Verbatim info, and not neccessarily how the packaging will describe the product.

The below items are all DatalifePlus, and 80min in capacity unless noted otherwise.

94521 - branded 1pk
94760 - branded 10pk in slim case
94761 - branded 20pk in slim case
94523 - branded 50pk in Cake box
94355 - White Inkjet Printable 1pk
94369 - Crystal Thermal Printable (74min) 50pk in cake box
94892 - Silver Inkjet Printable 50pk in cake box
94904 - White Inkjet Printable 50pk in cake box
94949 - White Thermal Printable 50pk in cake box
94795 - White Thermal Hub Printable 50pk in cake box
94755 - White Inkjet Hub Printable 50pk in cake box
94938 - Crystal Thermal Printable 50pk in cake box
94798 - Silver Inkjet Hub Printable 50pk in cake box
94797 - Shiny Silver 100pk in cake box

Hopefully this helps :D

I take it by the omission that 95251 isn't MCC with Azo dye...

I have some DataLifePlus 48x CD-Rs made in Mexico, and some plain Verbatim 52x CD-Rs also made in Mexico but with CMC ATIP. I noticed something about the hub serials on these; the DLP discs have a serial that starts with "A" which I assume is for Azo while the CMC discs have one that starts with a "P" probably for Phthalocyanine.

If you look at the discussion in the threads I linked, you'll see that cfitz had DataLifePlus "Made in Mexico" that were excellent. The ones I stumbled over were the cheaper line (DataLife in Europe, probably ValueLife in N.A.).

Of course this was 3 years ago, so things may have changed. And maybe Verbatim has done something re. quality control. I haven't had further problems with their media (but I've avoided anything that could be CMC :wink:)..
