Put simply,

Do the differently coloured CD Writing surfaces affect the life span of the disc. I have some Verbatims Pastels, which are manufactured by TY, and they seem to be some of the best discs ever -- but I dont get a "warm and fuzzy" feeling about them; I feel like they may not last the distance compared to a 'normal' cdr... Anyone got any science to go behind this?

Also : Coloured Mitsui Manufactured Nashua's -- same boat; excellent quality, but no warm and fuzzy feeling about the lifespan :)

I think this one was explained allready in another posting by me.

In this case:

Mitsui and TY disc's are normally of a good quality so I won't expect much problems in these cases. There quality Policies are very high.
Still you have to keep in mind that the coloured Mitsui's are not comparable to Gold however they should be comparable to silver ones.
TY pastel disc's are standard TY quality.(only That's Master and Emtec Ceram Guard (74 minutes version made by TY) perform slightly better most times. Still it is possible that a normal TY disc's outperform these disc's however with my experience I would say that the quality of That's master and Emtec Ceram Guard(74 minutes made by TY) is still overall a little bit better.
