Data Burning With Verbatim

Back in the days when I was in high school, 1.44MB floppy disks then was the trend. I can still recall those times when I fancy the colored yet transparent ones that I sometimes tend to keep instead of using.

However, as time and technology progresses, I’ve noticed that they are hardly being used. But there’s one brand that always come to mind whenever I hear the words floppy disks, it’s Verbatim.

It has always been the brand of choice up until my college years mainly because they have delivered so much quality and passion with their brand thus it created a lasting impression that has been unparalleled up to this present time.

Quality has something to do with brand recognition and by far, they have fulfilled their mission. To this day, I’ve been using Verbatim CD-R discs for regular MP3 recordings although I haven’t tried burning DVDs yet with Verbatim DVD-R discs, I might buy one of those for burning holiday videos.

Burning data on a CD is basically easy but choosing the best brand can also contribute to the quality of the finished product although your software and device can go hand and hand, pricing related issues sometimes play a part.

  1. I recall the floppy disks way back in the renaissance era of memory hardware. In fact, if I dig up some old paper boxes in the back of the house, there’s a big chance I’ll still find some of them there. (It’s a thing with me, not being able to readily let go of some things, even the obsolete, now-useless things.)

    So Verbatim is considered to be one of the best, eh? Me, I just simply pick up whatever catches my eye in the store when I do need to burn some data up. Verbatim of course is one of the oldest brands in compact discs and the like. I’ve heard and seen this brand since the time I came to know and appreciate compact discs. Well, now that you said it Math, chances are that the next time I do buy a disc, I just might unconsciously pick up a Verbatim. 🙂

    It seems that we’re quite similar in keeping things too antiquated for some peeps. I do value things however small or cheap they are especially those that are given to me as presents. I cling to things with sentimental value.

    As for Verbatim, it does remind me of the good ol’ days.

    Okay. I don’t know what brand we use to burn mp3’s onto a CD in my house, but I’ll keep the brand Verbatim in mind. It sounds familiar but I don’t remember hearing anything specifically about it before.

    I’d love to know what you have to say about Verbatim.
