Delkin Devices Archival Gold Scratch Armor CD-R Disc (25 Spindle Pack)

B&H # DECDRSA25 Mfr # DDCD-R-SA/25 SPINDLE
You Pay: $58.66

The Delkin Archival Gold Scratch Armor CD-R Disc has a 700MB/80 minute storage capacity. The Archival Gold CD-R safely stores your images for more than 300 years. It uses a Phthalocyanine that reacts quicker to the writing laser than dyes found in most CD-R discs on the market. It makes sharper pit edges making your CD-R easier to read by CD drives. Compared to Cyanine and Azo dyes found in the majority of CD-Rs on the market, Phthalocyanine dye lasts significantly longer when subjected to the harmful effects of UV light, heat, and humidity.

The characteristics found in Gold prevent oxidation, one of the most common causes of CD-R disc failure. The combination of Phthalocyanine dye and the use of gold in the reflective layer of the disc ensure that Archival Gold CD-R discs provide the most extreme protection for your digital images from environmental degradation.

Scratch Armor is a protective layer that prevents scratches, scuffs, dirt, chemicals, and fingerprints. The clear scratch resistant coating prevents damage from the daily grind that the discs are faced with. Lasting 10 times longer than other recordable media, the protective surface keeps your memories, music, and files safe.

Archival Gold CD-R safely stores your images for more than 300 years.
Used for long term storage of digital files, including pictures, music and other data.
24k Gold reflective layer instead of silver; with a lacquer layer over the gold to prevent peeling

        I am not going to be around in 300 years, so I don't know how they will perform then. However, I say with certainty that these discs perform well now. This is my second batch of 25. In my first batch I didn't have one coaster!

                  For the family photo archive

                        My brother and I just went through boxes of old family photos. He found a couple of two great-great-grandparents!

                        We've been getting them scanned (the job is not done, but note that B&H can scan old negatives in most odd sizes) and it only seemed right to copy the image files to the most stable disk available.

                        These disks use the most stable chemistry in the data layer and gold in the reflective layer (to thwart oxidation and other chemical attack) and they seem to represent the best available to the consumer. Whether they will actually last 300 years I can't say. But they will probably outlast me. You pay extra for this, of course, but some things are just worth it.

                          I finally spluged and created backups for my external hard drive. The discs are easy to use and did not have a single one fail to verify.

                            I have been using these for back up for five years now, and have never had any lost files when I have gone back to get them. I wish they were cheaper, but with the price of gold going up as much as it has that's probably not going to happen.

                            I store all my digital photos on Archival Gold disks, in addition to my hard drive - great way to catalog, transport, store and preserve digital images. Longevity was the main reason, but they are scratch resistent and durable, as well as portable. I don't know of a downside after several years of using this product.
