Well, I am pretty much sold on the idea that TY media offers the best quality.
Least thats what I remember reading long ago, and I am assuming it is still the case.
So for my next purchase, I will probably buy make a big order of G02 or G03 media. Or its DVD+R equivalent (only found for 8x so far).
But I am also thinking of upgrading my Pioneer 106, which has served me well to this date.
The BenQ seems highly regarded overall (I have no idea why, I am completely overwhelmed by DVDRW tech), and so is the NEC. I wouldn't rule out a Pioneer either since this one served me so well.
But which drive is ultimately the better drive for write quality using TY media? And which specific media? I don't mind burning at slower speed. I would pay the premium for the G03 if its better than the G02 at 8x for instance. Keeping this criteria in mind, what would be the best drive for me? (And which media should I go for)
