MAM-A (Mitsui) 4.7GB Gold Archive DVD - 50 Count

Frank says,These are not Walmart discs. These are the discs you buy when what you record on them is important, and what you record on them will be important in about 75 years as well. Think of it this way; Will you need to access the Excel files on your computer in 75 years? Probably not. You have all your old family pictures in the basement in a cardboard box. Maybe they are your Grandmothers, and they are 75 years old. Well think of your digital photography the same way, and you suddenly have data that's going to be important to you 75 years from now. That where these discs come into play. The advent of digital photography has given us a reason to be concerned about photo storage. The MAM-A gold archive DVD has a shelf life of about 100 years. The gold reflective layer will not oxidize over time, where a silver layer will. These discs will last longer than a hard-drive, or a tape backup or just about any other medium.

Finally a DVD suitable for storing your most precious files!
The MAM Gold Archive Grade™ DVD is designed for applications requiring long-term storage of sensitive data, video or music files. The reflective layer is comprised of 24 karat gold, which allows maximum resistance to chemical breakdown -- one of the major causes of disc failure. Along with choosing the right recording dye material and bonding agent (Note: A DVD-R is made of two polycarbonate discs bonded together) the long-term stability of the reflective layer is crucial. Reflective layers using your standard “silver” surface are subject to oxidation (rust) over a long period of exposure to moisture. Unlike silver jewelry, a gold ring won't rust and neither will the gold reflective layer in this disc. In optical discs, the use of gold can triple the life of a standard disc.

Preliminary tests show that the MAM Gold Archive Grade™ DVD can last significantly longer than ordinary silver recordable DVD discs. Although tests are currently underway and results will soon be available, we can assume from our experience with gold layer CD-R that the expected life of these discs will be similar. The MAM DVD is offered as the long awaited companion to the MAM Archive Grade™ Gold CD-R, which has an expected lifetime of 300 years and has earned a reputation as the highest quality storage media available today.
