Well, the single Verbatims prove a little to pricey for my liking, and I can’t buy the only pod-based ones in batches of 10 because they’re not non-printable which would greatly irritate me as I like to write on them and non-printables can’t have the writing wiped off to start over (as I never get it nice and neat first time)!
And so, I am left looking at other 8cm media that is non-printable. Lightscribe would be cool but by no means essential.
There is a list of thing here: http://svp.co.uk/category/8cm_dvdr_rw
However, if someone is aware of another place selling better media, I will gladly go there instead, it’s just that SVP have good selection and are reliable so I always look there first.
(I have avoided Ritek like the plague for a couple of years since a run in with bad media and the rep they get here, however I was told this by someone about the Traxdata 4x 1.4GB 8cm DVD-R (RITEKG0401):
“I use the traxdata mini’s which are g04 and they are fine. I know 2 or so years ago there was issues with the g05 being generally crap and degrading quickly and the later g04’s joining them in that regard , but the 8cm discs seemed to of steered clear of that crap or at least the traxdata ones did. Still got my original burns from when the viper first appeared (2 or so years old) and they are fine and as far as know haven’t suffered any degrading issues.”
Sorry to blabber, hope someone can point me in the right direction!
