Okay -What to entrust with my collections of TV series?
I'm leaning toward the 8x lgihtscribe because I Looooove neat labels, but wanted to check here first for a heads up on anything of which I should be aware. I have already learned the inherent lessons in using quality blanks (though mostly through the percentage of successful burns on the front end rather than data loss on the back, thank goodness) and Verbatim is still the way to go as far as DL media, yes? Is there any reason to go for 2.4x over 8x? Is the newer stuff as reliable or am I still seeking out older stock 2.4 from Singapore?
And RE: -R DL? I have seen that they still only make this avail in 3packs and at much more expensive than +R DL! Is there any reason I should buy -R DL instead? Are there still compatibility issues with the +R format and standalone players?
Or is it not even worth the worry about squishing dvd9 content onto dvd5 as far as quality goes?
And how can I possibly still be this uncertain after all the info I've researched over the years!! Do they make it this confusing on PURPOSE!?
If it makes a difference - both burners are IDE Lightsribe DVDRW's: 18x ASUS and 20x Optiarc...
