Question DVD Media

It is possible that different brands of blank DVD media will produce a better quality reproduction than others?

The reason I ask is because I have been using Sony media [ DVD+/-R ], today I bought a spindle of TDK +R, the TDK seems to have a much better picture. I tested two exact movies on both my PC (PowerDVD XP) and my home theather DVD player, on both instances, the TDK seemed a much better quality.

yes i notice this too. it seems to make a difference on my sony home dvd player, have not tried looking at the quality on dvd-rom playback. if you are storing data instead of video on dvd it should not matter quality as long as the dvd can be read. Guy do you notice more square blocky artifacts on your movies or is it something else?

Nope, you hit it on the head... more blocky patches...

This is the weirdest thing too, I wouldn't think it would make a difference, but I have tested a few more movies and I still notice a diff.
