I use Taiyo Yuden Watershield inkjet hub printable Glossy DVD-R media and MBI(Moser Baer) Glossy inkjet Aquashield DVD-R as well as their dual layered glossy media. The glossy discs have the best print quality that I have seen and are also water resistant. Although they are not cheap they do provide the best looking backup. They work great on my Epson R220. smile.gif

traxdata are the current discs that i use. so far i have had no trouble from them.the glossy ones do give good results,but can smear if touched by liquid,and can also peel off if not handled properly,but the white printable ones are very good.
if you don`t leave,you will never come back again

i always use 8x Ritek Full Printable DVD's, i've burned hundreds and neveer had one fail on me yet, so their either good quality or i'm just pushing my luck lol
they ain't the cheapest around but at 12.99 for 100 i'm not gonna complain,and as my local computer shop seems to have an endless supply i'll stick to what i know works on my system thumbup1.gif

The stingray, leopard, and aviar are all great discs.The aviar putter will hold it's line for a long time before it begins to fade, and the more you use it and wear it in, the longer it will hold a line.The stingray is a good one too, it's a very easy disc to learn how to manipulate so you can throw it however you want to.The leopard is probably the best beginner's driver out there because it has a relatively stable flight and it's a very low speed disc....

I have always loved Taiyo Yuden but will buy pretty much anything in store if they're cheap. I have just always been told to make sure you look where they were made. If they were made in Taiwan you're good to go. Malaysia on the other hand isn't. You will actually see two spindles, side by side, same packaging, same brand, same everything... except they are made in two different places. Always go with Made in Taiwan!

I used to use the Princo white-top disc's.

Then moved to Ritek Geo5's. The odd failure but work on all the dvd players. And cheap as well.

I've tried 90% of all mentioned in this thread so far and have had good to poor luck with everyone.

the brand I use now and have been for the last 2 years are the
SONY DVD+R PRINTABLE. I have not had 1 coaster in over 3500 burned. And they will play in any DVD player you put them in!

at .29 cents each in a 100pk not a bad price at all! a few times a year they go on sale at .17 cents per 100 and have also gotten them on special buy one get one free!

It's a matter of what works with your system best.I got a load of memorex not long back as my local morrisons had them up for less than 15 for 100.However i am EXREMEMLY fussy over the condition of the writing surface,I HATE buying disks with artifacts scratches scuffs dye runs glue marks anything at all like that on the writable side.I will only burn purfect blanks.
