As we all know, various manufacturers make discs for various labels, yet it is also accepted that certain DVDs are always better than others, for instance Taiyo Yuden is renowned for being very good.
I want to ask what the generallly best labels are. I am aware that Ritek has long been a ‘good’ label, and I’ve been using 05s, but recently they have come to be known as degrading very quickly.
I have already mentioned Taiyo Yuden, but a reasonable price for these is like gold dust everywhere I’ve looked in real life and the net.
Verbatin are meant to be really good, but I’ve heard some bad things about them (posts #1, 4 & 9). Do you guys think it could be to do with the fakes going around or have any of you had bad experiences with real ones?
Bar those two, what are the other REALLY good ones too, not just good but the best?
