You don’t say what burner you have. This can make a tremendous difference in the answer.
I do not get good results with TYG03 media (in all inkjet printable flavors and at any burn speed) in either my BenQ1640 (no surprise) or my Sony Optiarc 7240S (others do). Any -R disks just don’t perform as well for me compared to +R disks.
I just purchased a Lite-On iHAS524 and a Samsung SH-S243N and will be testing the media out on them.
Taiyo Yuden uses excellent dyes in their manufacturing. A low PIE/PIF, smooth Transfer Rate Test scanned TY disk should last as long or longer than most any other consumer recordable disk. They are still my manufacturer of choice, though I will not be buying more 16x until I have a burner that can burn it along the lines of T02’s (DVD+R 8x) consistently.
Of course, your mileage may vary. You should go to the MyCE section that coressponds to the make and model of your DVD burner and look for examples of burns with that media. You will have your customized answer then.
Since results can be variable for each person and their DVD burner, be nice and let others know of a great buy.
