Which blank cdr?

Could anyone advise me which are the best quality cdr. We are burning cds from a master, which is spoken voice audio.

I understand TDK are good.

We need a balance between quality and cost!

Have a look at using Taiyo Yuden

Just checked website - they certainly look like good value - thank you!

I have used the £15/100 ones for three years without any problems. I would imagine that the CDs will be binned/put in back of drawer after a few years, go for the cheap ones...Ritek Jaguar...100 for £15 from click here

Taiyo Yuden is one of the world's leading media manufacturers and its products, apart from selling under its own name, have also been rebranded by, among others, 3M, Sony, Philips & Imation.

I always use the Imation CD-Rs sold in jewel case packs of 10 at £5.99 a pack or three packs for £10 at Morrisons/Safeway - superb value and currently now rated at 52x speed.

Never had one single coaster in nearly 18 months whether using 32x, 48x or the 52x version and the same goes for several friends, who also buy them from Morrisons.

If you want to find out who produces the best, average and worst CD-Rs and CD-RWs or who rebrands such products under their own names, go to:

I think with cd's you buy what you pay for. Back in the day when i first started to burn cd's i got the cheapest cd's of all different brands. And i use to get alot of crap cd's. So i decided to try out the more expensive cd's and i havnt had a problem with them for yrs now.

Thats why I tend to but their own unbranded disks... ;-))

Wow! Thank you all, this is really helpful and just the sort of advice I needed.
