from the scans you guys have posted, it seems that Taio Yuden's disks are generally good quality, and work particularly well with the 1620.
rather than buy (10) 5-packs from different brands and experiment, like i did years ago with CD-R media, i want to do this DVD thing right the first time.
i'm planning to order TY 8x DVD+R disks from newegg, it was around 41 dollars for 50 disks. i've seen mixed opinions on whether minus-r is more compatible with home players, however it seemed that plus-r was a fairly safe way to go.
i want disks that i can pull out months if not years after i burn them and know with at least fair certainty that they'll have a better chance of staying good, as opposed to some of the more budget brands available.
so am i on the right track here? thanks guys.
