DVD media for Pioneer 106

  reddwarfcrew 15:55 15 Nov 2003

I'm about to take the plunge and buy the pioneer 106 dvd writer as it seems to have good praise in all forums.

Can anyone recommend what media suits this drive the best?

Before you tell me that the Pioneer A06/106 is not listed I will point out the A05/105 is misleadingly labelled as 'Sony'. The 106 should take all the same ones as the 105 for DVD-R. I use Verbatim. Haven't used any DVD+R yet.

I have the DVR 106 and have tried a few brands nad have settled with Memorex 4x -R. They play back fine on every other player I have tried.

In their weekly list (A4 paper sheets) Microdirect list DVD-R suitable for both Panasonic and Pioneer
Discrite 2x (20 pack) £21-15 ; Discrite 4x (25 pack)
£28-20 and Mirror 4x (25 pack) £25-85 all inc vat.
Have purchased a pack of the latter but not tried them yet. The Verbatim from Maplin are excellent but rather pricey at £40 for a 25 pack of 2x.

jimv7's link is likely to be the best as the company details which media suits the 106 and which doesn't - it also offers perhaps the lowest prices for both the media and the rewriter itself on the net and is a very reliable outlet.

Dabs also sells 25 DVD-R disks for £15 but compatibility with various rewriters is unknown.

My son bought the 106 from them a few weeks ago, along with the media.

He's delighted with it and the DVDs he's produced play perfectly on every DVD-ROM and player I've tried to date.

from click here, i backed up 5 DVD
