Default Best DVD+R media

Here is the poll (but not an actual poll):

What brand of DVD+R media do you use?
Have you had any problems with it?


I have been using TDK media with my i/o magic drive, and when that died i switched to the NEC 3550A drive. So far no problems yet.

I also use Memorex DVD +Rs.

When I had a liteOn DVD burner I had some problems, My DVD player would freeze while watching some of them. I figured it had to be my burner causing the problem. So I bought a Memorex DVD burner because I use Memorex DVDs I haven't had any problems since.

My lite on DVD burner came with my PC, So I figure it was a p.o.s. I'm sure LiteOn makes good DVD burner
