    Verbatim +DL is the only way to go. www.newegg.com has them about as cheap as they come. They're $49.99 + $4.99 shipping to US for a 50 pack spindle at the time of this post.

    edit:

    I just found the 8x verbatim 50 packs on newegg for only $5 more. The max recommended speed is 4x, but it's much faster than 2.4x ($49.99 priced ones).

    I would agree that Verbatim is the way to go, especially for XGD3 backups using the new Burner Max method, although even Verbs aren't working for some people. Having looked at KProbe scans of various other cheaper brands, a lot of them give terrible burn quality and I'm surprised they work at all.

    1 & 2 would be Verbatim and Taiyo-Yuden with Verbatim getting the top spot because of availibility. Everything else is tied for 3rd place, a very distant 3rd place.

    Taiyo Yuden discs are great quality, but they only make DVD-R DL discs, not +R. If you see +R ones, they'll be fakes (TY are one of the most faked discs out there).

    Amazon has good prices on verbs too, prices have gone slightly up the past few weeks but it's still a better deal for me than newegg with their shipping and taxes.
