but seriously, what DVDs are we supposed to use? every single brand seems to be put down for deterioration and PI errors. prodisc, ridata, princo, fujifilm, daxon, vakoss, CMC magnetics, moser baer india, and all the crappy brands. yes i realise i’ve thrown in brand names as well as manufacturers, but you get the point.
so about all that’s left is TY, verbatim and ricoh, (and i’ve heard good things about sony but yeah.)
now fuji TYs are gone, and they had some sort of “speckling problems” anyway. so what am i supposed to do? buy unbranded TY from blankmedia.ca? how do i trust it if it doesn’t have a brand name? what if the quality is inconsistent, who do i complain to? am i supposed to ship my media back to blankmedia.ca? forget it…
RICOHJPN03 are in some of the memorex 16x at future shop. so? i’ve seen some very poor quality scans coming out of this community on those discs. that’s disappointing, i guess i’m not buying those.
verbatim costs $0.70 per disk which is quite a bit. it is beginning to look like my only option, however many people try to tell you that they’re no good, because of previous experience. i find this quite strange. …i would get the pastels but they seem unavailable in canada.
does anyone else ever feel frustrated that there are just no good discs at all out there?
