I just recently picked up a spindle of Verbatim Datalife Pluses - been using them forever, but since I haven't really been burning any games for close to two years I haven't had a need to buy any new blanks. The last Verbatim blank I have is from about two years ago - and they color of those blanks look quite a bit different from the new spindle.

The Datalife Plus blanks are still marketed as "Super Azo", but why is it that the blanks are no longer blue, but more of a puke green, which is somewhat remniscent of early Imation/TDK blanks? The old blanks I had were a far deeper blue, and the Mitsubishi blanks I picked up in Japan were even bluer than that.

Will these blanks work as well as the old ones? I remember reading that the color of the disk itself affected the dye, is it because they now use a gold colored rather than silver colored base, which would account for the green-ish color? As far as I'm aware all the Azo discs *SHOULD* be blue, unless they recently changed something... ?

I'm not sure on that one. The ones that I purchased last weekend are blue on the bottom.

Hm, I just learned in another forum that it's because of the new "Super Azo" dye that it's this color. The deeper blues were a Metal Azo, as opposed to the new greener Super Azo dye...

Is there anywhere in the US that sells 80min Mitsubishi blanks? Preferrably unbranded, but anything works.

the color of the cdr that you can see doesn't mean much.it depends of the dye material and depend or the reflextive dye material.
just buy a bunch of those cds and test them, then you'll see if they suit your needs

Metal AZO is certified for up to 16X write, no faster. Super AZO dye is the dye which caters for the 24X-48X and possibly 52X-56X CD-R's.
