I notice that I promised to report back in 2015 my results of using the Verbatim DVD+RW that I started using back in 2012. I'm two years late but...

Glad to say that the 2012 Verbatim DVD+RWs are still in use and I've not had any of the issues that I had previously experienced (within 2-3 years) of the Maxell/TDK that I mentioned earlier. I have heard that current Verbatims (of all varieties) are not the same as they were a few years ago, but for the record, my DVD+RW are at 5 years and no problems at all.
