CDR Blank media advice needed please

Been lurking for a few months now and reading lots of useful info, decided to register today as I need some advice.

I recently purchased 200 Verbatim CDRs (CMC Magnetics YUK!!) from www.bigpockets.co.uk and they have been very poor (15 coasters so far), compared to the Verbatim (moser baer) they are rubbish and I can only burn em at 8x compared to 16x with the moser baer.

I want to switch to another brand, I know TY are the best but a bit pricy, can u reccommend a solid performing mid price range CDR and a reputable supplier or somewhere I can purchase reasonable priced TYs.

Hope this is the right forum, if not no offence taken if you move it to newbies!!

With the Verbatims cdrs you want the ones with the MCC mid, I assume yours are not. SVP are reliable.
These are down as being MCC.

Thx for the good advice, is it possible to get Verbatims with the same manufacturer, but ink jet printable?, if not anything of similar quality in other brands.

I would probably go for some Taiyo Yuden instead:
