Use the Verbatim 2x DVD-R with my standalone Panasonic DMR-E60 and they have always worked OK - came from Maplin £40 for a spindle of 25 discs. According to Microdirect.co.uk both Panasonic & Verbatim discs work OK in Pioneer DVD recorders.
Blankdiscshop also sold me a spindle of 100 unbranded 4x RITEK DVD-R for use with the Pioneer 105 DVD recorder I purchased from them in June this year. Haven't fitted the drive yet and haven't tried any of these discs. As they have absolutely no writing on them whatsoever they could be anything. The die is a slightly pinkish colour. These cost approx ?134-45 inclusive of vat. I still wish I had purchased a branded make such as Verbatim or TDK.
