When it comes to 16x DVD+R media, I'd prefer Verbatim (Mitsubishi) as well, for BenQ drives that is. Even the made in India MCC004s burn very nicely with my BenQ DW1650.
But for 16x DVD-R, I'd prefer Sony. Genuine Sony 16x DVD-R media (MID: SONY16D1), especially made in Japan or Austria, burns exceptionally well with my BenQ DW1650, even better than CMC made 16x DVD-R Verbatims (MID: MCC03RG20). Prodisc made MCC03RG20s burn worse, haven't tested MBI made ones yet.
