    Default DVD-/+RW - which is best?

    Here's the scoop. I do not have any RW discs. So, I am going to put some on my Christmas wishlist. My parents buy online only from Amazon, so I need Amazon links. Which brand/type of RW's do the experts prefer?

    That was a nice read. I bought 20 Verbatim +R discs the other day. Makes me kinda regret it. Doesn't matter, +Rs are doing fine for me atm. Will get the -Rs next time

    Why? They are tremendous disks. I use them myself. I believe +Rs to be the best and certainly, you ain't gunna get better than Verbatims.

    Stick with them.

    Well that link in your signature sorta swayed me over. After reading the pros and cons I thought the '-' would be better.

    They are much of a muchness these days - but the thing that sways me is that +Rs have almost exactly the same reflectivity range as a pressed DVD and you can set the bit to make it DVD_ROM. This is a big plus IMHO.

    I would be very surprised if the colour is lighter on a -R than for a +

    Please post a screenshot of 2 eact same frames from each disk.

    Nero ShowTime. Then hit Capture Frame and it copies the frame to the Clipboard.

    So according to blutach, I should buy Verbatim DVD+RW discs?

    when I copy an image it is hard to see the different, only see by the naked eyes and see a whole leght of the movie then you would see what I see, any one who try and get the same result would be nice if you confirm here


    Thanks

    NightTran, try using a digital camera and taking a pic of it. Be sure to turn the flash off, so it doesn't glare.

    So, are these RW's the best?

    I bought them before to practice, some disc still give you problems, not 100% or even 95% like vertibal R+ or -, to me it is only 50 cent for a back up why buy rw because sometime they can erase by it self, I try but you still can 't see the different between r+ and r- with picture, you need to watch for a while then you will see what I mean

    Those ARE Verbatims. As for the picture, maybe you are just seeing things.
