    Best DVD dual-layer media brand?

    I've been researching around at NewEgg.com for the best brand of dual layer blank DVD media.

    So far, through reading through reviews:

    Memorex - Heck no. More negative reviews than positive, and they all say the same thing more or less: disc won't burn, or an error occurs during burn process

    TDK - Maybe. There are some negative reviews but mostly positive reviews. Complaints are that only some of the discs out of a stack of TDK discs will work; the others fail, apparently.

    RI-data - Roughly the same as the reviews for TDK, see above.

    Verbatim - Excellent reviews, there was only one negative review, and the reviewer simply said that Verbatim is expensive.

    *Note*: The order of brands listed are from cheapest to most expensive.

    -----

    Putting these reviews aside, I'd like to ask the dBpowerAMP community: What brand of dual layer DVD's do you use, and are they at least 95% successful during burning/usage?

    Neil -

    The cdfreaks forum pretty much agrees (as much as a forum can) that Ty and Verbatim are the best media brands. As to which ones make the best dual-layer, I can't say, but I'd definitely go over to the cdfreaks forum

    ...

    As to my poll answer, I do like toast.

    I even have a "Toast Boy" T-shirt that a friend (an ex-girlfriend) made for me.

    It involves the discovery that her older sister and I both went to the same pre-school, and a couple stories her mom told about her sister's classmate were actually about me. One story involved toast, of course.

    Preschool was 1973-1974 with a class size of seven and fourteen kids, respectively The connection was especially freaky, since her family moved out of the area in the mid 70s.

    So, toast it is.

    I really wish the prices for dual layer DVD's would drop.
