I loved the Verbatim Pastels (TY) and the Verbatim Extra Protection (also TY). Sadly both are hard to find here in the UK now :sad:...although you can still find the Verbatim Extra Protection discs made by other manufacturers.
I also like Ritek CDRs, though I may be in the minority there! Must be decent brands though, e.g. Maxell.
These days though, I tend to stick to Taiyo Yuden, both unbranded and under various different brands.
