    This question appeared a few times in HWZ, hmmm, if you want high quality ones go for the ones that use Taiyo Yuden dye. Eg. Sony ones (the older 'Color Mix' ones that has the Made In Japan thingy stamped on it, quite hard to find now). In case you're lazy to go search or anything, heres what I digged up:

    Some other good recommendations:
    Mitsubishi Sonic Black Crystal Azo -> $20/50 pcs @ Chamoxa
    Fujifilm TY OEM CD-R -> $30.80 / 50pcs @ South Asia Computer (Funan)

    Sony and Imation CDRs are okay,manufactured by a variety of manufacturers, Benq,CMC and Moser Baer included.

    i use maxwell, dye by hitachi. i think some maxwell dye is not by hitachi. so far so good.

    if u say re-burn the cds every 3 years, i got hundreds of cdr, duno how long to reburn them

    i have quite a few smartbuy having some problem reading. the cd can still be read, but just some files cannot be copied out, no matter what cdrom i use.


    nowadays i backup on dvds, and still keep all my pics on 2 hdds. better be safe then sorry

    Just to let you all know a great place to get good deals.

    The no-brand CDRs I got from them, price is reasonable, $38 for 100s and if any CDRs is defective, can go for 1-to-1 exchange, even for no-brand. and they are always to able to answer technical questions quite well and make recommendations based on your application. Where to get this type of service elsewhere?

    Btw, Branded CDRs price also reasonable.
    That's the best shop. Got 1 to 1 exchange. Warranty a few months. Unlike some shops who only offer 30 day exchange. How can I use 50 cds in a month? A few of my cds bought 3-4 months ago burn spolit I also go back to exchange. Where to find these type of deal.
