I read the thread above "Nice List of dvd media and codes" but i am not sure exactly what it all means. Anyway, I just wanted to say that after reading this board, i bought a bunch of the TY media since it is supposed to be some of the best. However, I have aboy 80 disks that I had bought at staples around Christmas dirt cheap. My question is this: Is the brand TEON a generic? The reason I ask is because it was cheap (but it was on sale) and because i never heard of that brand before. Anyway, I have burned about 25 Teon 8X dvd-r so far and not a single problem. So, if they are generic, they are not that bad. By the way, even though i have a fast dvd burner, i only burn them at 4X.
