I have a Panasonic DMR80 and am finally getting around to transferring my family video tapes (about 60 of 'em!) to digital. The drill is to transfer to the Panny’s HD and dub to DVD-R (only format the unit recognizes).
I want the longest (known, at least) lasting, most reliable DVDs I can find that can burn nicely at probably 1-2X, which is what the DMR80 does. I’ve used some 1-2.4X CompUSA discs (Princo’s) in the past, and the results have been superb. But not feeling very confident that Princo et al will hold up over the long haul (duh!), I’d like some suggestions for quality media that provides good slow burns – which undoubdtely eliminates such candidates as 16X Varbatim, 8X TY Sony.
