    You are half correct ... Verbatim are good discs ... however .. watch out for Memorex ... the quality varies drastically, sometimes good, sometimes landfill material ... Here is a link that will steer you towards good media ...

    I've recently found some 8X media at www.allmediaoutlet.com in California that is as cheap as some 4X DVD-R media that that I’ve purchased. The media is PowerMatrix 8X White Top DVD-Rs. When I used Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 to backup some DVD movies, Roxio identified the media as 12X . When I use that media in my Pioneer DVR-108 16X Dual Layer Burner, it actually burned at 12X, and only cost around thirty cents each (around $ 64.00 for 200 disc’s). I have no idea how this media will perform in other burners, but for me they have been outstanding.
