And I said in the case of Verbatim I don't agree, What's your point?

It's a pity you can't post screen shots which back up your experience such as a better quality burn than what I'm getting with Verbatim today. 20 years experience, yet while making lots of generalisations you haven't actually given any examples of your own experiences with media longevity, or lack of it.

As independent longevity tests showed several times, disks that cut perfectly during burning couldn't be read afterwards, while disks that were not so brilliant in terms of PI/PO, withstand much much better and be still within the specs. Which I think is exactly what the OP asked. There are not so many dyes around, (I assume) you know, so there are other factors besides who manufactured the dye, who manufactured the stamper and who relabelled it. And of course, (I assume) you know there is also Gold/Alu layers, not only Alu.
So independent longevity tests show some discs last better than others. This proves the quality has been dropping how? Did those same longevity tests on older discs of the same type show the same discs manufactured a few years earlier would have lasted longer?

No, they don't.... do they?
