Ideally, would like to get 4x media which I can burn at 8x. [/B]
I got some Fujifilm-branded ProdiscS03 4x DVD-R media and its worked great. Was on sale at Best Buy: 50 pack for $49.99.
Burns at 4x with stock firmware, but burns at 6x with Herrie's beta firmware, I believe. And 8x is supposed to be added in the next beta. Write quality tests at 6x looked very good.
I've also been going through my TDK 4x DVD+R (RICOHJPNR01 manufacture) and they burn great at 6x with the stock firmware. They burn at 8x with Herrie's firmware as well.
Take a look at the "Testers Needed ..." thread for a bunch of tests done on the drive with Herrie's firmware at 6x and 8x. Should give you an idea of what's worth buying.
