[QUOTE=DrageMester;2683602]JVC Taiyo Yuden CD-R is probably the best CD-R media you can get in terms of compatibility and burn quality.
In terms of protection of the top layer, however, Verbatim Crystal (Super) AZO CD-R is one of the toughest available, whereas the JVC Taiyo Yuden is merely average.
If you want to archive your media, I would consider JVC Taiyo Yuden to be the best available.
If you want to use your media often and need it to be tough, the Verbatim Crystal (Super) AZO is your best bet (*).
(*) Unless you can find some old Verbatim Extra Protection Made in Japan or Verbatim Pastel Extra Protection Made in Japan, both of which are Taiyo Yuden media with a tough top layer and Verbatim branding - the best of both worlds.
