Verbatims are some of the most reliable discs on the market- their only real rival out there is Taiyo Yuden. We like the TY discs, but they're definitely a bit on the pricey side. While Verbatim aren't cheap either, they're more affordable for everyday use when you still require very high reliability.
Verbatim don't resell other companies' discs (which is more than you can say for a lot of major brands). All their media are manufactured by, or on behalf of them and use Verbatim's own custom dyes.
