The Verbatim DVD-R UltraLife Gold Archival Grade 4.7GB Recordable Disc (Spindle Pack of 50) is a write-once disc designed to preserve family photos and home movies as well as critical corporate data. Each disc is manufactured using single reflective layer to maximize both compatibility and longevity. To further extend media lifetime, there is a hard coating on the recording side to protect the discs from scratches. The disc uses a Metal Azo DVD recording dye optimizes read/write performance.

Single layer technology is comprised of a gold layer for long archival life. This feature provides a low initial error rate after recording, important for long archival life, and the same drive read/write compatibility as standard silver only discs. The gold reflective layer, naturally resistant to corrosion, prevents oxygen from coming through the DVD bonding material and corroding the silver reflective layer. Silver oxidation can be a primary factor which limits the lifetime of DVD media.

      Great for storing valuable video and photo
      Only time will tell if long term strorage if possible.
      I would still re-record every say 5-7 years or so.
      All have worked perfectly so far.
      I do not use any marker, even "safe markers" I use markers on the case.
      You can not use archival gold delkin pen because the discs have a "hard coat".
      Disacs have to be stored in an appropiate case, vertically,with air flowing (thence the need for the "bump" in some cases to prop it up), and safely fastened but not so hard that it splits the center of the DVD when putting in and out -it isnot bonded like in the cd's-. and at the right temperature and humidity.Burn at slowest speed for better long term writing

      i've used these before. once in awhile, one would fail to burn, but i felt it was an acceptable rate of failure. i bought two spindles of 50 each. this time 4 out of the first 10 i tried to burn from one spindle of them failed to write!! I can't see what would have changed or affected the burning on my end. The system has stayed the same. To their credit, the company has said they'll replace the failed DVD's, but it's a pain to have to deal with sending them in and of course I'm hoping they'll actually honor their promise of replacement.

                        I use these archival DVDs for my wedding projects. They are really high quality and very reliable. Plus, the build texture feels strong which translates to a durable product. And of course, B & H Rocks as always!

                          I use this product for archiving photographs and so far so good. Haven't had any problem w/any bad ones. Quality is good. Like the fact that there is no writing on the disc and when labels are put on them they look great.

                            Can't really be sure about longevity and would have to check back in ten or so years, however DVDs function as advertised. No bad ones in the stack, and a great price.

                              As a Wedding photographer I use this to download the cards as insurance against anything that could go wrong during the day. Stolen cards, lost cards, anything that will keep us up all night worrying about lost memories of a client. The cards download quickly and are easy to find when i want to upload to my hard drive at the studio. I have read past reviews and was a bit concerned about the ease and ability to use on the fly. No worries at all. Used it without reading the manuel. Files safe and sound.

                              I am making copies of old family photographs from the 1890s and 1900s that I have scanned and am distributing the Ultralife Gold Archival DVD-R to family members. I figure if I have taken the time to scan these old photos I want them preserved on the best media possible so they will be classics for the next generation. So far no rejects discs.

                                I highly recommend these DVD-R Archival Gold discs. Excellent way to back up hard drives and memory cards.

                                    I was happy to come across a solution to a long term storage for digital files, I have quite a few edited home videos that I want to make sure are viewable 20 to 30 years from now, i am hoping these discs will accomplish this for me, i guess we will have to wait and see.

                                        i use these discs to backup my work. they are quick burning and reliable. they are more expensive than your average dvd-rs but i feel not losing my work is well worth the investment.

                                          Good quality and looks good - just gold color, no any printing on the disk, this makes it more appealing to customers.
                                          How long it lasts - I do not know but I never had any problems with Verbatim products. I use them all the time for my videos and pictures.
                                          I use this product for picture archiving not as a video DVD.

                                            These are the only discs we use to give our clients copies of their digital negatives. They are extremely high quality discs, and very reliable. We've never had a problem using them. Our clients take comfort in the fact that we give them an "archival grade" disc for their digital images!
