Hi, I was browsing Ebay UK, and come across a few brands like Maxwell, Philips, TDK, DataSafe, TuffDisk. Which are good brands you would suggest I should look for?

Edit: I found a few - Any good?:

I've never had any problems with Maxell, Sony or Verbatim.

I have been using Verbatim exclusively for the last 4 years. No problems with either DVD+R (4.7GB) or DVD+R DL (8.5GB).

Verbatim is a great brand. i have burned thousands of dvd and i would say that they are the best but expensive.

i recently switched to ridata from newegg and they have been great and cheep. i have used them for at least a year now and have had a few problems with data retrieval but i am not sure that it was the media at fault.

remember that the burner you use has a lot to do with reliability, not just the media.

I've had good luck with LG, Verbatim, and TDK. Avoid Memorex, as sminlal said above though.

Alrigty then. I'll go with the TDK ones, they seem to be the cheapest out of the bunch. Are they any good for their DVD's? I want it to store data for at least a few years.

Regards.

Hmm, I just checked and Verbatim is a few bucks cheaper then TDK, should I get those instead? Are they a match to TDK?
