Default Just how important is DVDr media to PS2's laser?

sponsored links
First of all, dvdrs significantly reduce the strain on the laser when comparing to dvd rips, where the laser constantly scans the cd.

Is the media that is labeled "good quality" (i. e., Apple, Verbatim) infact better than cheaper media like Princo?

From the numerous threads about GTA VC we've seen than sometimes even good media can fail (Some people had trouble even with the mighty Verbatims)

Personally I've stuck ONLY with Apple dvdrs so far. I've gotten nothing but good results from this media. Recently however, I've tried cheaper media like Princo and found it to work just as well.

So this leads to the question pertaining the quality of dvdr media then...

[b]Just how important is dvdr media for the PS2's laser?[/b]

Will "cheaper" media wear down the laser more than "better" media?
Should we stick with the media that "works" or with media that is considered "superior"?

If you have any experiences with dvdrs don't hesitate to state your opinions.
