    Hello to all,

    I am ready to purchase BD media. Any suggestions on what to buy and what to avoid?:bowdown:

    AnyDVD HD doesn't use media so not sure why it's in the AnyDVD HD forum

    For blu-ray imo Verbatim & Traxdata. The Traxdata's are a bit cheaper then verbatim but i havent had a coaster with either brand. And i've burnt quite a few bds already

    It's not now. :) I guess this should be the CD/DVD/BD blanks forum but anyway...

    I recommend Verbatim, personally.

    I would avoid BD-RE (rewritable) and BD-R (50gb) dual layers.

    Still way too expensive, and with today technology, with minor compression can fit on a BD-R (25gb) single layer or more than one disk without compression.

    Don't need the rewritable BD-RE because you can learn how to put it on a BD-R without any mistakes.

    I'd steer clear of Traxdata, I've written 50+ discs using traxdata discs and going back to them have found over 25% of them are now useless

    I have found the same thing. If Bluray starts selling tons of media maybe Taiyo Yuden will get into the act. LOL.;)

    That'd be nice. For now Verbatim is the best I've found. Panasonic gets decent ratings for DL media.

    I wouldn't, unless you can find out what dye etc they use. I buy PiData discs which have a good record using Ritek dye, and can but them at 250 for £250 and they are surface printable
