Yeah! More cost is more trusting in record data. I have used other non-branded Verbatim, (also MCC00X), but best results which i have gave is only with "mommy" Verbatim. This Brand is the FIRST test who the "industry of burners" use for test new burners. Other interesting are Maxell, TDK and Tayo Yuden! If your problem is the cost, you can buy a lot of Verbatim in numbers of 10, 25 or 50!!! Big Big Save Money!!!
Repeat, for Plextor Burners, Verbatim (CD or DVD) is the BEST BEST Choice!
