I’ve only just decided I need to start archiving a bunch of data on my various hard disk drives. So I am reading up on the best DVD media to use.
From my various pieces of research I found that everyone seems to love this Taiyo Yuden dye with DVDs, so I’ve been looking around for media.

These seem to be quite good value for taiyo yuden dye (from my research).

Can I take this as a fact that they are similar discs, do you think?
How reliable will these Mediastar discs be over the long term?
(I’ve learnt a lot from this forum already!)
