When i buy DVD+R's, i just look for the cheapest, cheapest ones.

I have bought BenQ and Fujifilm DVDs, and no coasters.

Anything works great...

That's not necessarily true. What you bought could be good, but I'm just saying in general.

Well it depends,

I use the generic Brand DVDs and CDs such as the ones from Strathfeild (http://www.strathfield.com) not sure if you have it over in the US though, but Verbatim has worked well for me in the past they are probably the best name brands I've used.

actually... i have had NOTHING but coasters from TDK. They burn fine 50% of the time (and then they can't be read by ANYTHING) or the other 50% of the time the burn fails.


Maxell and Imation are my brands of choice. For CD's at least... I dont really have any problems with DVDs.
