Verbatim 16x DVD-R - best discs for copying movies, very few coasters, if any. Burns at 18X on my 16 speed writer sometimes.

Anyone here notice a differnce between the "Value" TY DVD-R Printable and the Non-Value Type?

On Tigerdirect.ca The "value" TY are $187.99 for 600 (0.31c/per) whereas the "non-Value" TY are $237.99 (0.40c/per).

Ritek GO5 seem to be the best for value and reliablity

Verbatim for all media:
DVD-R and RW: 16x certified
CD-R: 52x
They are very reliable, also when used in other players ;)

Read this to know what is the best Blank-DVD for you

The brand is not important,the manufacturer and the Media IDs is important

On this site you can also download a Media ID tool (Freeware)

For CD's (in UK )can't beat Lidl stores, Maxell CDR-80's 5.00 for 50 !
anywhere else they retail about 10-12 (non printable discs)still great value !

I Use Ritek GO5 8x full face printables. Either Traxdata, SumVision, Maxell or whomever is doing deals for the GO5 dye. I have used these for circa 10 years now and have no problem with any of them burned all those years ago. I pay (sometimes fluctuations apply) but circa 12p per disc. For cd-r, i use either Datawrite Titanium Full Face printable or Ritek by Traxdata. I burn circa 2000 cd-r per year and very rarely have any problem. They are priced about the same for 100 in cakebox at 10.00. Thing is discs either dvd or cd, its about what you are comfortable using. Some will swear by 40 tubs of Taiyo Yuden but to be fair they offer nothing better than anything else, in point of fact i used TY03 dye dvd's and found them crap.

It is actually called "Crank that Soulja Boy" , but anyways, who cares about the name as long as you got the song? -__-

RITEK and RIDATA have never let me down. Affordable price and EXCELLENT quality.

the best without a doubt would be verbatim although quite pricey
