I'm looking to make backups and do some off air recording. Taiyo Yuden is listed first in Samsung's media compatibility for DVD-R media, so considering these results from Froogle, I'd like to know which if any vendors shown have been good to deal with / reasonable shipping, etc.:
Taiyo Yuden 4.7GB 16x DVD-R Spindle 100-pack or this.
I'm guessing that the 16x should give me acceptable results and speed for non-critical use, but I'm not stuck on this brand if there's a good deal going from a vendor you've liked before. I'd pay a bit more for branded, but the "general" quality would also likely work for me, as long as I could be reasonably certain they weren't counterfeit.
I'm new to this site and a bit overwhelmed by media and recorder reviews, so that's why I'm asking. I figure a few good responses could save me many hours of reading and research.
Also: What would you recommend (format, vendor, etc.) for data DVDs where longevity and compatibility between readers would be more of a concern.
I'm also looking for something for +RW, where only very similar Samsung burners would HAVE to read it.
Many thanks in advance.
