I'm running seriously low on my DVD-Rs at home and am going to be purchasing a 100 disk spindle soon. Right now I'm using a Sony 16x burner that is really a rebadged lite-on. I haven't made many coasters (<3-4)in probably 125 burns with Sony 8x DVD-R disks. I also have burned 15 successfully on 4x Verbatium DVD+R disks. But on my old burner Lite-On 8x (has since died) I couldn't even begin to burn on 4x Sony DVD-R disks. I was looking online for some Sony 8x again cause I've had pretty good luck with them, but I'm unable to find them in the US for any cheaper than I can get locally, which is a bit more than I want to spend ($0.80/disk). I saw newegg is having a deal on Ridata disks, but upon reading reviews of them it seems they have been turning out bad batches recently. So the real question is what has given you good luck (post your burner model too) and is still reasonably priced?
