    I'm looking to get some new dvd-r hub printable media. I've always used verbatims but I've read a lot on here about TY. At Supermediastore the Verbs are about 2/3 the price of the TY. In your opinion is there that much of a difference between the two or are the Verbs just as reliable?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    The verbs are just as reliable plus they're available at just about any local office supply/electronics store.

    Your final recording quality will depend on how well your drive is tuned for the medium. Both Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden are extremely well supported as far as firmware goes, with the possible exception of TY DVD+R 16X, which was late to market. TY will likely run into problems with DL media when/if they introduce them, but that will be a compatibility issue, not a quality issue. It will be interesting to see if users begin to tear them apart the way they have torn apart other, incompatible discs, or simply dismiss them as "counterfeit." This is a huge marketing issue for Taiyo Yuden. I'm sure they want to get into the better margin DL discs, but they will have to wait until their inverse stack 8X versions are ready--and even then they face limited support simply because they are late.
