Pros Very very high compatibility rate Good price, especially with PM 16X
Cons Absolutely none. You couldn't pay me to use a different DVD-R!
Summary Don't be fooled by the name "Value line". These discs are awesome. I've distributed probably five or ten thousand of these to clients over six years and have yet to have one come back. I could count on one hand the number of bad discs, and even then I can't say for sure the problem wasn't the fault of the burner. These discs rock and I wouldn't think of using anything else.
Pros Compatible with anything, never get errors, burns perfectly
Summary I've been using Taiyo Yuden for a while now, I used to think Verbatim was the only best brand but Taiyo are as good if not a bit better than Verbatim, but most of all they are cheap! Great quality DVD, never gets errors and burns anything well (Games, Photos, Apps, Movies)
Summary Been using Taiyo Yuden almost 2 Years now. Very Please with performance and Reliability of the Disc-DVD. NCIX Sells the Good Taiyo Yuden Media Code DVD!!! But Buyer Beware of Fake Chinese Taiyo Yuden. Only buy Japan Taiyo Yuden product that has these media code on the Printed Pkg. TAIYOYUDEN: 2× DVD-R (Discontinued) TYG01: 4× DVD-R TYG02: 8× DVD-R TYG03: 16× DVD-R TYG11: 8× DVD-R DL YUDEN000 T01: 4× DVD+R (Discontinued) YUDEN000 T02: 8× DVD+R YUDEN000 T03: 16× DVD+R If these doesn't have the above Printed Media Code on the Pkg there are Fake and the Quality is very low rated. For those of you not 100% sure if Taiyo Yuden are the Best check out these Link for more information. http://www.digitalfaq.com/reviews/dvd-media.htm http://www.best-dvd-burning-software-reviews.com/best-blank-dvd-media.asp http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taiyo_Yuden

Pros No Wasted packaging, re-use an old spindle. Remarkable quality vs price, I burn at 24x with no errors.
Cons Top of DVD is silver with no logos or writing, so it can be difficult to determine which end is up.
Summary After extensive internet research into DVD media, I came across many reviews for Taiyo Yuden DVD products. Taiyo Yuden manufactures high end archive DVD's that can reliably store data for 50 - 70 years as opposed to 20 or so from its better known competitors. It all has to do with the "dye" the DVD's are coated with, Taiyo Yuden just has higher quality expectations. I will never use anything else.
Pros High speed, great sale price, no problems with the discs. Can't go wrong with these.
Cons Cheap packaging. It's just wrapped in thin plastic with no spindle or physical support.
Summary The discs are fine, no failures, high speed, good sale price. Only downside is cheap packaging. Hopefully you've kept spindles from past purchases of CD-Rs or DVD-Rs that you can use to contain your stack of 100 DVD-Rs.
Pros TG03 burning speeds shown up to 16X - I usually burn at lower speed and verify. So far no errors on half of pack one...
Cons Obviously much depends on how the dye hold up over the years - but I've had super luck with various versions of TY DVDs.
Summary Basically like many others, I get a bunch of these when on sale - though past versions have been TG02s with lower burning speeds. It's always a relief to find out that the current bunch work perfectly as past ones. So far I haven't been disappointed!
Summary Great budget DVDs. Had one or two weird ones so far that didn't burn so well. Not a big deal when they're only 20c a pop. The dvds don't come with a storage case, so be ready to have your own on hand. The dvds just come shrink wrapped, nothing more.
