All you really wanted to know on DVD

As for specific brands of media, I would go for either Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim.
You cant’t go wrong with these (IMO).

Welcome to the forum. I second the suggestion to go with TY or Verbatim. Some very good companies to deal with, in order, are:

Rima.com, Newegg.com, Amazon.com, Supermediastore.com, Meritline.com, Allmediaoutlet.com, and shop4tech.com. They all sell both media. One caveat, Meritline sells “High Quality” media with a TY code. It is NOT genuine TY.
