    alright, so the topic title may not be the best, but what is the best brand for recordable media, like DVD-R, DVD+R, CD-R, etc.? In your experience, which is the best brand?

    I've always used Fujifilm and Verbatim. Imation has never given me any troubles either, nor has (surprisingly) Memorex.

    Lots of praise for Taiyo Yuden. I've also had good experiences with Maxell and Verbatim. Memorex has made me more coasters than I'd care to count.

    They used to always do that for me when it came to CD-Rs, however I have had surprisingly good luck with them when it comes to DVD-Rs. Mind you, they're DVD-Rs I use at work, so I by no means would ever go out and actually pay money for Memorex anything. ;)

    I must say anyone using a MacBook Pro. Avoid the Memorex Brand of DVD's.

    I bought 100 and 50-60% failed on burning.

    Verbatim is pretty top notch. Very few coasters, hundreds upon hundreds of discs burned.
