    I am thinking of buying a few dvd+r but dont know which will be best.

    I have the choice between

    Verbatim 8x 4.7 GB DVD+R
    or
    Verbatim DVD+R 4.7GB 8X DataLifePlus White Inkjet Printable
    or
    Verbatim 4x 4.7 GB DVD+R Digital Movie

    The Standard are about 20p
    The Datalifeplus are 25p
    The digital movie are 55p

    I use maxell gold tops which I buy at a expensive price, 1pound with a dvd jewel case.
    I have a 8x burner (cant remember which one cause its my sisters) but burn very happily at 4x and I don't think I will burn at 8x just in case.

    They are all from a reliable source but is it really worth spending double the price for a digital movie one if datalife plus are only 25p?

    Any ideas?

    Naw, go with the datalife plus. They are the ones that everyone recommends. Also, while I don't know about the digital movie disks, the datalife plus disks are the only ones that verbatim claims to be rade A.

    I agree with balaam, verbatim data-life plus +8x. These should code a mcc-003.I just got a 100 pack spindle in this morning.

    I just burned 95 verbatim +4x digital movie quality,coded mcc-002. These are pretty good,but i'll take the mcc-003 over them anyday.

    I can get 12x out of those 8x data life plus,but I still keep it at 4x.

    Here in the states,usually media life plus cost more than those digital movie quality.

    Good Luck

    Don't kill yourself, but Verbatims at Newegg now have a $30 rebate so it's $30 for 100-pack after rebate.
