i like the beall 4.7gb dvd+r media, which right now for the 4x you can get it for about $.30 PER dvd (this is on www.meritline.com). i have found that dvd-r are cheaper and seem to work with almost all dvd players. as where dvd+r tends to have less compatiblity with players. still i think that the over format and quality of dvd+r are still the best choice. beall is the chosen dvd company that government officals use over all.
