[QUOTE=memory;2620107]that’s very easy.
maybe i’m wrong but i have the feeling some (corporates, manufacturer…) will start a synthetical hype for blu-ray blanks.
but at the momend i think bd-r aren’t trustful like known good cd/dvd blanks that showes some independent tests. bd-r need some development work to be a trustful media for the future.
the most consumers don’t think about what they are buying and at the end really get.
my attitude is hope for the best (=more fair play regarding of the past of crap cd/dvd business/crap blanks=(bad) falling sales) and plan for the worst (bd-r = don’t record/archive important data).
furthermore i will save my important data to some reliable cd and dvd blanks with them i have had good experiences.
of course it’s up to you to make your own decisions. [/QUOTE]
I don’t think its about right and wrong. I am just as worried as you about choosing the best media. If you have no need yet for the capacity of Bluray for video or data, by all means stick with what you feel confident in .
When I found the need to get into Bluray, my attitude was to research EVERYTHING to death :). Materials technology, manufacturing technology, company reputation and attitude, professional testing, personal testing, experiences of others around the forums and in the professional duplication business, and of course my Ouija board .
But as you say, while I do have a reasonable level of confidence in my choices, you still have to hope for the best. Once in a while that Ouija board is wrong :).
