I’m about to go out and buy a Pioneer A05, but the only thing holding me back is the question about which media to buy with it.
I’ve searched and read the FAQ and came up with this list of safe DVD-R’s:
Mitsubishi, Verbatim, Mitsui, Maxell, Pioneer, TDK, Matsushita, Taiyo Yuden, Sony, Prodisc
Since DVD-R’s are pretty hard to buy in regular shops here I want to be reasonable sure that the DVD-R’s I’m going to order are good.
The real questions are:
- Is that above list still accurate?
- What is better supported in standalone DVD players: DVD-R or DVD+R (too many results with google, and most contradict eachother).
- Most good brand discs (like Verbatim) are pretty expensive (3 euro or higher), which of the good brands are in general the cheapest?
- Are there affordable/reliable 4x media available?
