Decent DVD+R DL choices?

Having searched the forum, I see Verbatim seem to be the preferred DL media. As this is still somewhat exensive, which other brands are half decent? Seems Melody/Intact use CMC, would these be ok for 1 rank down from Verbatim?

Some other discs are half-decent, but it’s hard to find two spindles in a row that exhibit the same characteristics.
