I'm wanting my backups to last for a long time without me having to constantly check the discs have not degraded every couple of months, so that put me off Ritek G05 dye as I read they get fickle after a year or so.

I read that Verbatim brand DVD-R's with the Taiyo Yuden dye is the best and will last a long tie but I've looked everywhere and can't find any printable ones, ideally with a glossy finish.

I've looked on SVP, diskdepot, ukdvdr, and a bunch of other sites listed on here but to no avail. Does anyone know where I can get these discs?

just found that dvdshoponline sells Taiyo Yuden branded DVD's with the TY02/TY03 dyes. Doesn't say if it's a glossy print finish though

www.dvdshoponline.co.uk/P1695.html

Is that a good price?

every site I look at only has the Verbatims in +R so I'm just going to go for the genuine TY's.

This site is the cheapest so far: www.shopneo.co.uk/taiyo-yuden-8x-dv...k-pr-16758.html

Has anyone used shopneo before?

All the TY's on Verbatim seem to be for the +R media, so I'm just going for the TY's made directly by themselves as I've had bad experiences with Datasafe in the past (out of 40 burns, 32 coasters and 8 burns that degraded in a week. Threw the rest in the bin).

Shopneo has the cheapest price for 100 printable Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD-R and only 0.45 cheaper than bigpockets. I've heard of bigpockets before so I'll be buying from them

SRN Horizon in hoe street Walthamstow do mail order. I pay £11.00 for 50 Full Face Printable DVD-R Verbatum They are matt finish. The only time i have seen glossy Verbatum the centre hole was circa 40mm, so you would lose half of the print. I seem to remember they were +r though.
