" Best " is subjective to say the least. You'd probably get lots of opinions on which brand is the best. The most important thing is not the brand but the dye used to make the DVD. The darker the dye the better. Look for a brand that has a deep purple colour on the bottom. Personally, I use the cheapest DVD's I can find for backing up DVD films but for something really important, something that I want to have with me 40 years from now, I use Imation. They're cheaper than most big brand names and they use dark purple dye. I hope this helps.

I used reds for a while but noticed a few glitches on the occasional playback of a film. Whch was annoyig cos id previously had no bother at all with Datawrite.

I tried bulqpaq too, but my local supplier has nearly phased them out.

Ive now switched to [URL=***********.boltonpc.co.uk/Page.asp?RP=823&Ref=DATAWRITE]Datawrite Titanium DVDs and had zero problems so far. Try em !

Sony DVD-R's "Made in Japan" are the best I've come across.

But I use Sony, Fuji, and Verbatum "Made in Taiwan" and haven't had any trouble with those.. Just that, most prefer stuff made in Japan.

I'd stay away from the cheap bulk stuff, unless you plan on just storing data.

TDK is what I use for backups. Never had a problem yet.
