[QUOTE=Kerry56;2740749]Sorry no one has answered you webdawg, but the guys who actually use the DL BD-R will probably show up soon enough.
I have never burned DL BD-R, so I go by our user reports in the forums. Most everyone recommends the Panasonic DL Blu-ray media, whether it is from them directly, or sold under one of the brands that also uses their discs. JVC/Taiyo Yuden is one. Sony sometimes uses them, but not always, so it is hard to judge what you are getting with them. I wouldn’t use TDK.
For single layer, Panasonic, FTI/Falcon and Verbatim have been getting good user reports. I have had no issues with my SmartBlu FTI discs, nor with the Verbatim, even though Verbatim did not do all that well in the one longevity test we’ve seen. Verbatim single layer BD-R are very popular, and there have been few complaints about them deteriorating prematurely.[/QUOTE]
Can I ask where you are getting your SmartBlu FTI from? It really does look like for DL that Panasonic is the winner.
Digistor sells dual layer but their DIG-11536-25 have MID of cmcmag-b16 so CMC.
Really the only place to get the Panasonic DL’s is off of ebay or out of japan? I can find the Taiyo Yudens on amazon.
Also can anyone recommend any recent good sellers on ebay for DL media?
