I saw the CD-R deal from tesco (Thanks JerrardM) so I had a look at the DVD+R and thought this was a good deal for 100 DVD + or - discs.
These DVD's come in a 100 pack and each DVD R has a 4.7Gb disc capacity to store images, videos, music files or applications.
I have used them before and had no problems so I stocked up at this price,

It's not really important these days. ... early doors was similar to betmax and vhs 2, hd-dvd blu ray 2 competing formats. All modern writers read and write to + and - some older dvd players required dvds to be bitset to DVD-ROM (only dvd+r can be set to this booktype) there was one - R writer which allowed -r to be set to dvd-rom a nutech(from memory so i may be wrong) anyways setting the +r booktype to DVD-ROM would make them appear to the playing hardware/ dvd player to be a pressed Dvd(like the ones you buy in shops with movies or data on) instead of burnt as in your dvd writer versions to -r or +r

Having bought Tesco DVDs and CD-Rs in the past, I would never do so again. They were the worst blank media I have ever bought, bar none.

Chances are the Tesco ones are not the best. Tayio Yuden (were considered the best , not sure since Jvc took them over a google search will show) I think it was Jvc anyways. Verbatim are usually good and even the Chinese ones and Indian ones which have been considered poor compared to the Japanese and Taiwanese ones are still better than most of the other brands.. If you are just after some dvd-5 (Single layer) 4.37 gig

Depends on the age of your dvd writer (laptop slimline writers are pretty poor compared to desktop full size versions) .. what is the make model of it ?

Buying 10 can work out dearer than 25 unless you are after dvd +9 which are dual layer blanks. I would only ever use verbatim for dual layer burning as writers are even more fussy with dual layer media.

For sinlge layer Verbatim 43522 from amazon (these might be chinese or Indian)

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Verbatim-43522-DVD-R-4-7GB-Spindle/dp/B00097CCZK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1294664791&sr=8-2


and if you need dual layer 43666 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Verbatim-43666-8-5GB-Dual-Layer/dp/B0015Y9LQY/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1294666277&sr=8-7

media are us at side do them 14 p cheaper

You probably don't need dual layer though so the first link 25x dvd -r on a recent dvd writer set to 8x write shoud be fine.

Having just received my Tesco order the mid code / Dye used is UME02 for the -R & AML-003-00 for the + R. Not ideal but it could have been a lot worse.

First disc burnt at 8x and verified @15.8x over usb 2 , so a good start for some cheap media.

the + r burnt like this

Hard to say. Best to use these types of media for throw away data eg sticking mp3s or movies that you do not want to archive/keep. I would never trust this type of media for sensitive data without having other backups on other media/hardware etc.

Completely agree but i'm finding harder to find media that i really trust. I always used verbs for important stuff but i'm not fully convinced the indian ones are as future proof ....... we'll see in a few years time !

Not a fan of TDK but i picked up 100 TDK (only £7.50) from my local WHSmith the other day and even they are made in india now and appear to be a part of imation.
(it might be worth you looking in your nearest smiths for any deals, i suspect its just odd stores selling at these prices which is why i didn't bother posting the deal)

al the best

from 2002 to 2004 fair enough (though you could still bitset to DVD-ROM with much success) in 2011 though it hardly matters as +R is recognised as such in the vast majority of new hardware and if not then altering the booktype to DVD-ROM = disc compatible.
