    So my first ever dvd recorder, Panasonics DMR EH50 should be on its way in the next few days. So I need to know what are the best disks to get for it or what type I need and where i can get them cheapish (online stores etc etc). Any recomendations are welcome as I have no idea what to get as ive never bought any before. I did see Tesco were doing their own brand dvd's quite cheap the other day would they be ok just for a starter?

    My advice would be to have a look at SVP as they have a massive range and give great service, and good prices :thumbsup:
    I would avoid cheap no-brand DVDs.

    Reports I have seen recommend Taiyo Yuden dye with two possibilities mentioned favourably.
    {DV 3260} Taiyo Yuden Unbranded (16x) DVD-R in Spindle Tubs of 100
    {DV 3182} Pack of 5 Verbatim (8x) Pastel Coloured DVD-R (With excellent Taiyo Yuden dye)
    Both available on this link

    I use Ritek 04 mostly and have no problems, Ritek 05 can be a bit dodgy.

    Bizarely, I found the ultra cheap Datawrite Red V3 to be very reliable in the Panasonic. I know they aren't considered the best discs in the world, but the Panasonic seems to like them very much. I've burned loads of 'em without a single problem.

    I use those in my E85 and they are superb discs.
