Cheap Blank DVDs

Being new to DVD recording How good are cheap discs and is there any Preference to DVD+r or DVD-r as I have a dual writer?

The best thing to do is try out an individual disk before buying in bulk.

There was a recent thread where a member made a bulk buy on a rewtiter advertised as capable of burning to all types of media only to find it incapable of burning the ones they had bought.

If you can say what make of writer you have there is bound to be someone who can advise from personal usage.

takes you to the blank disk shops dvd pages, choose either the +dvd or -dvd link and the first in the list is a sample pack of (+ or -) dvd media for £9.74(+) or £7.99(-) each gives 6 diff makes, so you can try before you bulk buy. Hope this helps.

Good site for info on all topics for dvd.

I've tried Datawrite oranage and yellow.Had a slight prob with the oranage,but none with the yellow Datawrite Classic,they were available at the computer fair for 62p to 75p each so have a look around.
