The Verbatim UltraLife Gold Archival Grade CD-R 80 Minute, 700MB, 52x Recordable Disc (Spindle Pack of 50) is a write-once disc using the Dual Reflective Layers (DRL) surface coating to maximize both compatibility and longevity. The dual reflective technology is comprised of a silver layer for broad compatibility and a gold layer for long archival life. This layer provides a low initial error rate, important for long archival life, and the same drive read/write compatibility as standard silver-only discs. The gold reflective layer is naturally resistant to corrosion. The gold layer overlaps the silver layer and prevents oxygen from coming through the lacquer layer or edge of the disc and corroding the silver.

Up to 52X recording speed

Gold layer maximizes disc lifetime by protecting data from corrosion.

      I have used this product in the past and it goes way beyond my expectations. I use Photoshop and Picasa 3 to crop, enhance, adjust, and give special effects to my photos and then save them on the Verbatim Gold Archival CD-R's. No matter how many times I read the CD's at whatever shop I use to print my photos or enlargements, I have never had an error or photo not being clear. And B&H has the best price for this product. This product, in my opinion, is the best for the price of any photo archival CR-R's.

      Comments about Verbatim CD-R 700MB Gold Archival Disc:

      I copy my native image files to CD's and to portable hard-drives. For my processes files of my finished images, I save them Verbatim Gold Archival Grade CD-R's. Some, I use and reprint often and have never had trouble or errors with them. I'm confident that they'll last and have been using them for about 15 years.

            I am a pro/am Photographer. I store all my images on Verbatim UltraLife Gold Archival Grade CD-R discs. Because, there is no degradation at all during photo transfers. My images are exactly perfect on the disk. I can send my disc images to a printing house. The prints I receive are precisely as expected. These discs allow me to leave a legacy for my friends and family. I love that. I have been using Verbatim for decades and this product has performed so well, I cannot for-see ever using any thing other than Verbatim UltraLife Gold Archival Grade CD-R discs. There are no negative aspects to this product from Verbatim.

                  I've had a lot of problems with the mass-market cheap CD-Rs that sell for as little as 10 cents each. I'd rather pay about 90 cents each for an Ultralife Gold Archival CD-R, and not have to worry about having to verify a disk I've just burned, and not have to worry about whether it will be readable 5 years from now.

                      Having experienced how unreliable many store bought CD-Rs can be I was thrilled to come across these at such a great price. If you care enough to take the time to backup your data onto a CD or DVD there's NO reason not to use a reliable product like this. The price for these gold archival CD-Rs isn't much more than the ones you can find in most stores (some now displaying disclaimers that they're only good for up to 2 yrs.)! I would definately recommend these to others!

                          As a fire investigator, we need the reassurance that our images will be around for a long time. The gold archival disk will help provide this security.
                          With related data specifying that archival disks should last greater than 20+ years we should be able to recall the images in the future as long as Cd players are still around.
