Yes it is maddening to have to go on an easter egg hunt for media!
I've had great luck with Ritek G-04s from MeritLine, however I ordered some from NewEgg and they've been sucking!
I've heard the early G04s were quite variable in quality and that the quality came up last fall, so I wonder if NewEgg isn't selling some old stock?
I dunno, but it gets agravating to have to burn stuff several times to get it to work so I bit the bullet and ordered some TY -Rs, they'll be in Monday - I'll be curious to see how they do. I paid about a $1.60 each, which looks high on the surface compared to the Riteks and such but if I can truly burn and forget without having to burn, kprobe, possibly reburn, etc. then it'll be worth it.
