CDR / DVDR life expectancy


Just noticed on a cheap stack of 50 Ridata blank DVD disks the following statement:

"Storage acceleration tests guarantee safe storage for more than 30 years."

That this is actually printed on the outside of the case really does mean something.

I think the days of thinking these things will only last 10 years or so are over
(unless the disks are abused of course).

I remember some from a number of years ago claiming 100 year life expectancy which I thought was a bit humorous...   I'm sure the test conditions were slightly ideal.   :)
