I use TDK discs. Haven't had a problem with them. Spindle of 100 is $25 at costco.

TY's are great. The problem with Name brands is they change there supplier's from time to time. Many Big brands have changed from Japanese to Tawainese which is a big step down. Many big name brands would us TY but now dont. The TY's have frosted center wich makes them easy to recognize. Pro disk are also good but I dont think Mitsui are worth the big bucks. I order for www.am-dig.com because they have great service to tapers and the frequent many jamband boards. Be careful and dont get the TY disk that are unlabeled unless you plan on labeling them yourself or having them silk screened. They are much cheaper but will scratch very easily with protection. I and many others have made this mistake.
Its the terror of knowing what the world is about. Wathcing some good friends screaming let me out.

I think the TY golds are the shizzle, a little pricey but really nice thick top coat that seems very durable and flake-resistant.

for archival purposes, you might want to check out this....im not sure, it MAY be overkill for music cd's, but IF you want it to last a LOONG time..def worth it from what i have read here and other places....I wonder when they will put this coat on dvds....that would be the optimal archival media for my purposes.  unless the blue lazer(or whatever it is) has this kind of coat..

going against the grain here.
I like verbatims.
They use the same dye in them as medical grade archival media. (from my understanding)
Can't say I have lost one yet in the last 8 years +

same here :)

i sued to use kodak golds, but those are no longer :'( and used to be about 2 bucks a piece :P

Great discussion board to find deals and tons of knowledge on disk and burners can be found at www.cdrlabs.com
 
 I may be totally off base but Verbatim in the past where made in Japan but that isn' the case anymore.

definitely, I know a lot of people recommend them as the best name-brand (ie, not a manufactuere like TY) cd-r out there.

actually as I understand it the fujis made in japan are rebranded TY's...eventually that inventory will run out though...I am starting to see the local spots fuji spindles all with a new font on their packaging, and they are made in taiwan....

TDKs in the new batches I have seen have been made in India...

I was getting the silver 100/$25 but I just picked up the whiteface 100/$32.I agree with some of the others that maybe the silver would maybe scratch easier.And they look purty,too. ;D

now that you say that I remember reading all of that info before... perhaps I'll just pickup a few hundred next time I'm at Best Buy.

I had heard Ty's were one of the better one's but around here all the Fujis' I could find were made in Taiwan.This is according to the site that I buy mine from
  "Fuji America has switched CD-R manufacturers, so Taiyo Yuden is no longer making them. Media Supply is letting traders know that Taiyo Yuden is still Available, at very aggressive prices. We are the largest blank CD-R distributor in the USA, and a very large percentage of the CD-Rs we sell are Taiyo Yuden."

 Not sure how true it is.
