    I've been looking at getting some DVD-R at SVP for my Sony RDR-HX510, I know the Verbatim Pastel coloured DVD-R's are highly recommended; but are any of the discs in spindles of 25/50 as reliable?

    Also any recommendations for DVD+R Dual Layer?

    The pastel Verbatims are actually Taiyo Yuden, and SVP do spindles of 100 Taiyo Yuden.

    TY media has an excellent reputation, next up would be Verbatims with an MCC media not (avoid the CMC media code verbatims as they are less reliable).

    I don't have an experience of the dual layer discs but I'd try any of them except the Datawrite (CMC media)

    This site: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia can be useful to get an idea of media quality and compatibility.

    I'll give the spindle packed Taiyo Yudens a big thumbs up - a tad expensive, but they seem pretty robust and are currently giving me the best run i've ever had from my dvd recorders....

    I have always found datasafe 8x dvd-r printables CMC MAG AE1
    to be very reliable and a really good price.
