    is Tayo Yuden still the best media for recording? or have they changed and some other brand better? I usually record on DVD+Rs 8x...... it's been quite a long time since I've actively been recording.

    I'm not 100% sure either but I just finished burning thru 200 JVC TYs+R X16 and they were excellent. Also using last of Sony TY +R 8X can't get any better. Using also Verbatim +RX16 blue and purple azo not the cake boxes that are white and also a lot of Office Depot
    TDKs which are CMags +R X16 and having good results from them. I'm looking out for some more gold JVC TYs. The TDK are almost always on sale at OD.

    ihoe, my own opinion, I nevr use anything other than Ty's, JVC Ty's or Verb's, if anything you burn has any type of importance to you that's what I would stick with, if not than by all means go with whatever is the cheapest.

    CMAGS seems to playback ok in my experience. Never had a problem with one although I'll agree that the AZO Verbs & the TY discs are the better media.

    Bought a 50 pack of Falcon 16x white inkjet printable & it turned out to have a TT02 Mid code. A 50 pack of Prodisc 16x silver inkjet printable had the exact same mid code. Don't know if those discs will last or not so I burned another copy at the same time that I burned those to some TY discs just in case the TT02's go bad some day. I'll avoid both of these 2 brands in the future.....

    TYG03 is incredible as well. Excellent high speed media with the right burner. I still prefer 12X though :S Been using semi gloss for some time now. Zero coasters, thanks to my wonderful Optiarcs that don't know how to quit.

    Haven't bought any media from SMS in quite awhile although my last puchase from them went just fine. Usually I buy media from Meritline & take advantage of the free shipping. Don't remember whether SMS offers free shipping on media or not.

    Sometimes local shopping can be good too. There is a Microcenter here in Houston. They have some Verbatim Azo printable 50 packs left for $12.99 -R, 100 pack -R $25.99 non printable, 50 pack $15.99 non printable. Same prices for +R too of course. None of that is any of the Life Series stuff. Meritline is a bit cheaper but then you have to add shipping so I'll just pick it up from Microcenter & pay the 8.25% tax and maybe (?) save a little money thet way....
