Save yourself a lot of grief, and spend the couple of extra bucks for tyg01, tyg02, or ritek branded media. Also verbatim 16x is good media. Look at the forums for your particular burner, and see what media other people are having good success with. I only use premium grade media, and I very seldom have any problems at all, even when I burn 8x media at 16x. You might save $5.00 by buying cheap media, but by the time you count all of the coasters and mediocre burns, you actually lose money with the cheap crap.
