eBay: Tube 50 Blu-Ray Recordable BD-R 25GB Verbatim 6X

More in one purchase eBay, Direct from Japan. It is the third I do with the seller jp-gift, from the store tokyo japan shop. This time is a Tube 50 Blu-Ray Recordable BD-R 25GB Verbatim 6X (50 Verbatim Printable Blu-ray 25GB 6x blank BD-R Blank Disc Media 25GB). I really liked the Verbatim media that got the last two purchases, from 10 discos BD-R DL (double layer) 50GB in each. This time wanted to get some BD-R single layer 25GB media. Why not just a sealed tube 50 their? The price is much better than those found in Brazil, and media quality is also superior to most offers we have here.

My trust in the seller comes from the two previous purchases, whose corresponding articles I recommend reading:

The tube came well packed, in a box, with the customs declaration handwritten, with crumpled leaflets and bubble wrap. The folhetinhos of a Japanese supermarket (apparently) are an attraction in itself, because I could not identify even half of the products. I think it would be difficult for me to live in Japan.

The sealed tube shaft, and all text in Japanese, so I can only confirm that the media is really legitimate Verbatim, brand Mitsubichi Kagaku Media. The media is printable, covered with white paint that porous, only bringing in the corner: “Verbatim BD-R for VIDEO 25GB 6X”.

I tested one of the media Tube 50 Blu-Ray Recordable BD-R 25GB Verbatim 6X DVDFab Inspector in and got this information:

Despite being sold as supporting write speeds of up to 6X, these disks support higher speeds. In my current recorder, an LG (HL-DT-ST) BD-RE BH14NS40, that writes BD-R at up to 12X, the discs can be written to 12X.

And behold the tracking information package. Note that it arrives in São Paulo, will take a walk in Curitiba and then back. Otherwise would have come much faster. At least it was not taxed. On second thought, live in Japan suddenly not be that bad. Stay away from that damn Brazilian government, its bureaucracy and its taxes would have its advantages.
