Not an answer to your question, but I'm curious if you've tried
MAM-A Gold Archival discs (formerly Mitsui)?  They're quite expensive
(about $1.60/disc for 100), but I've read good things about them.

What do you like about the DataLifePlus?

I'm in the market for some good media myself.  I have a huge number of
CD images I've backed up to hard drives, but I'd like to have good
quality archival backups of them on disc as well.
