    I was wondering what is the best CD-R brand/s with good high quality precision recordability, long lasting storage life, very reliable for datas and music recording and best of all low in price. :cautious: :rolleyes:

    I could not post all of them but if you have something to add then I'll appreciates that. ;)

    Right. Especially the LightScribe DVD/CD's for burning very good looking labels.
    I like that stuff. This is of course only for important DVD/CD's.
    I only hope that LightScribe won't disappear. :(

    Do a search on "Taiyo Yuden CD-R" the data produced from physical testing over the years goes way beyond opinion, Made In Japan-Taiyo Yuden are hands down the best.

    You can't go by the brand name, these various brands use different manufactures and are always switching between manufactures. For instance Memorex Made In Japan are excellent Taiyo Yuden, the not MIJ Memorex are rather junky.

    All Verbatims are not created equal, the Pearl Whites are friggin junk! Verbatim MIJ (Taiyo Yuden) and the ones made in Tiawan (Mitsubishi Chemical Corp) would be the first choice followed by the ones made in India (Moser Baer)

    In the US there's always sales going on for TDK & Fuji (MIJ-Taiyo Yuden) and the resulting price is less than buying the junk media. :)

    I mostly stick with Memorex.

    So far, theyve worked well for my CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD-R needs.

    Pretty much have stuck with Maxell....sometimes Memorex.

    I think as long as you stick with the name brands...you'll be fine.

    Maxell and TDK. I've been using them for the past 8 years and have never experienced an unreadable CD (which is very important to me as I archive my photos on CD).

    I've read a lot about the questionable life of CD's, so every few months I make it a rule to load a few image-files from my older CDs into my photo-editor to see if they are still ok and so far, not one problem!

    Besides buying a good brand of CD-blanks, I believe that keeping them away from bright light and heat prolongs the life of the data-contents!

    A bit off topic, how to keep them safe especially from scratches. I see some CD containers with inside pockets made of polythene-type material but the material of these pockets itself is rather rough and I think it might be scratching the surface of CDs.
    Also there is some special way to clean CDs, from inside to outside( something like that- don,t remember exactly- I read somewhere).
    Will be thankful if somebody can comment on these issues.
