Had at one time purchased Fuji's by the case load when I had a contact who worked for BASF/Fuji in N. NJ. My favorite was the ceramic white faced BASF's That I would also get from BASF/Fuji direct, but they discontinued them. I would use these specifically to transfer my DAT's back in the day, of which had been deteriorating quite fast. The days of D.I.C. Dat's (1996-97) and the intro of the Panasonic SV250...nightmare products!
Worst CDR's I ever had and dumped due to errors would be HHB Gold and Maxell's.
The only time I use CD's today are for the car, as I do not have an Aux jack. I have been seeing quite a few new radios these days that offer the SD and USB jacks. The new Fiat 500L has the SD reader and Aux jack as a standard feature.
