This is post is mainly geared toward UK buyers. I am wondering what places are considered “reliable” for buying DVD medias. So far I’ve pretty much stuck to www.svp.co.uk (blankdiscshop), since I bought my Pioner 106D from them.
I would also like to know if there was a place to get the highly praised Taiyo Yuden DVD medias in the UK.
Having read a few read, I get the impression that the G04 are not as reliable as they used to. When I bought my Pioner I bought 10x Traxdata DVD-R and DVD+R and they all worked fine (couldn’t tell the difference really, except the price). Then SVP stopped selling them and I bought a spindle of Datasafe (G04) and I got one coaster. I don’t think its that bad, but I figure that if there is better then I might give it a go.
Also, assuming that a drive is capable of burning DVD-R and DVD+R, is there any reason to pay extra for DVD+R discs?
