Is 16X Taiyo Yuden still not as good as 8X?



I’ve always used Verbatim, but the last 3 batches of Verbatim DVD+R I’ve bought have resulted in poor scans, so I’m going to try Taiyo Yuden.

I found a thread from 9 years ago where people were saying that the 8X TY are good and the 16X have inconsistent burn quality. Is that still true today? What about DVD-R and DVD+R - are both good for TY?
