I was so shocked to recieve the discs so quick. I ordered them Saturday evening, which meant they posted them off on Monday morning, and sent them recorded and i got them the next day. They beat the estimated delivery date by two days, fantasic and discs are great. Verbatim DVD-RW Rewritable Disk Spindle 1x-4x Speed 120min 4.7Gb Ref 43639 [Pack 25]

I'm writing this review in response to those that have complained that these discs won't work with their DVD Recorders. I too, have encountered this problem (though not when I first started buying them, oddly enough - perhaps the lens needs to be cleaned?).

If you are having difficulty formatting these discs, try burning a small file onto them first using your computer/laptop. My DVD Recorder refuses to format the discs when they are completely blank, but once I have put something onto them with my computer - a small image or music file burned straight onto the disc - they work perfectly. Doing this for 25 discs is time-consuming, but once it is done you shouldn't have any more problems.

4 stars because the discs are good quality (and DVD-RW is the only way to go!), but it can take time to format all of the discs. For the price though, it is worth the effort.

UPDATE - If you cancel the burn shortly after starting (approx. 30 seconds), wait for the disc to be ejected, then format it using your DVD Recorder, it saves a lot of time. You might get a warning about the disc becoming unusable, but I haven't had any problems so far.

I bought these rewritable disc's based on the other reviews and the price. But they don't work on my Philips DVD recorder.I have another make of disc, and they work fine. I contacted Philips about this and they could only suggest using another make of disc.This all seemed very stange to me. As even a high street shop couldn't advise,I searched on the internet for an answer, and I think I found it. I didn't know or realise that there were different types of discs.Some recorders will only recognise DVD-RW OR DVD+RW NOT BOTH.My recorder seems to only recognise the DVD+RW version. These Verbatim DVD-RW discs work fine on a friends Panasonic recorder. Hope this helps.

Inexpensive and all have performed without any problems at all. Erasing and reformating have also been faultless. I would recommend as been a very good buy.

AFTER USING THE DISKS HAVE FOUND THAT THE DISKS NEED TO BE WIPED WITH A LINT FREE CLOTH,THE REASON FOR THIS IS, IF YOUR DVD RECORDER/PLAYER IS A BIT SENSITIVE A MESSAGE COMES UP WHEN FORMATTING THE DISK WAS UNSUCESSFUL, JUST WIPE THE DISK WITH THE LINT FREE CLOTH AND TRY FORMATTING THE DISK AGAIN THIS
SHOULD MAKE THE DISK FORMATABLE AGAIN,I USE FOUR FOUR DVD/VIDEO PLAYERS /RECORDERS BECAUSE I RECORD LOADS OF TV PROGRAMS,I AM NOW RETIRED SOME TIME AGO, SO USE THE DVDS QUITE OFTEN TO RECORD ON TO,ONE OF MY DVDS IS A BIT SENSITIVE SO USE ONE OF THE OTHER DVD PLAYERS TO FORMAT THESE DISKS SOME TIMES SO HAVE NOT HAD TO THROW OUT ANY DISKS AWAY, PLUS HAVE STARTED RECORDING FOR A SECOND TIME ON THESE DISKS.I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THESE DISKS WELL WORTH THE MONEY.

I rated this product as okay because the DVD's work fine. My only issue, and this might just be me, is that I burn discs quite frequently and I have noticed that these discs develop read and write problems after maybe six months of rewriting.

Don't be put off though because the discs produce good quality and I do put the emphasis on the fact that I base the wear and tear on being caused by my particular high use of each disc and you must remember that any DVD disc has a few hundred times that it can be rewritten before it deteriorates in performance. So if you burn less frequently the discs will last much longer.

I am going to order another pack soon. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to use good quality performance DVD-RW discs and buy them at a low affordable price.
