Hey guys! It's been many months since I last posted at MyCE. Took me a while to find this site again (had to go through all the bookmarks to see which one I "used" to post at).
Anyways, I'm looking for some affordable reliable BD-Rs. A quick breeze through recent threads, it seems TDK is no longer recommended (Ritek), Panasonic (imported from Japan) is now top dog, no mention of Taiyo Yuden stuff, and Verbatim non-LTH is the last to be recommended (Panasonics take the cake).
With that said, the last time I was around, TDK's BD-Rs looked promising, TY was a maybe, and Panasonic LTH stuff was a no-no. I was going to go with another 25-disk cakebox of Verbatim non-LTH (97457) again, but with others recommending Panasonic, it has been in a indecisive bind.
What should I be looking for? Are Verbatim non-LTH BD-R media still reliable (linky)? What about this Panasonic 4X BD-R media? (Also, anyone buy through Amazon from this "Buy in Japan" seller? Sounds really fishy to me.)
