Hey guys, newbie here, I suppose this goes here.
I have a dell laptop with an internal dvd-writer:
PBDS DVD±RW DS-8W1P BD1B
I think its 8x… I assume the writer is crap, but its the best I have atm. I’ve only used it to burn one dvd so far, which was a ridata disk from ritek (16x dvd-r) and didn’t really run into any problems.
And so I did a lot of reading for the past 2 days and the 2 best blank dvd media seem to be Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim. I am wondering which would be the best for my writer. I only have a limited selection because I don’t like ordering online.
I am basically planning to burn video files on these and had narrowed it down to 8x dvd-r’s from TY or Verbatim from this site:
The info they have on those dvd’s is limited so I’m not sure if its helpful, but I figured you guys are the experts and might know anyways.
I was originally planning to try those TY value line, but I heard a lot of things ranging from them being fake, or some people getting bad batches and so on. If they are real I was planning on trying them out (I read the thread about spotting fakes, so I guess I have some knowledge on it). But I wanted to double check and see if anything else would be better, you can see the whole selection here:
I tried looking at some retail stores for Sony, Verbatim, etc. MIJ dvds, but to no avail, even if they did its around $30 for a 50 pack.
If anyone can help me with choosing the best one (I’m really in decisive ) that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
