I use Taiyo Yuden exclusively. It's worth the extra few buck to me after seeing all the test results.

Ditto

same here.

Don't use CDRs much any longer, but I always used ones Made in Japan as I seemed to have better success with them.  If memory serves, not all TYs (or any brand for that matter) were MiJ, so getting the right ones required finding the CD-code to determine where they were manufactured.  Since this was difficult to do for store-bought, I always bought from mediasupply.com and other online sources that published their codes.

Edit to add:  Also, IME the poor quality CDRs didn't manifest in bad burns.  I could burn darn near any CDR without problems (except for some Maxell's).  The real problems came when I tried to read them 1 week, 1 month, 1 year later.  Unreadable.  I quickly learned the ability to burn successfully didn't indicate whether or not I was using a quality CDR.  YMMV.

Concur.   I had no idea that I had a bad burner, because I wasn't verifying w/ Nero after I burnt, but I had a lot of problems w/ files I burnt missing chunks - as soon as I turned on Nero verification I found it, and realized I needed a new burner because nothing was passing verification.   This is extremely important for files where the data must match the meta file.
