    For my Panasonic DMR-E60 I've been using Datawrite yellows (x1)flawlessly. But these are no longer available.
    For my PC burner (Pioneer 106) I've been using Bulkpaq orange (x4) and some Ritek G04 discs. Again, all have worked flawlessy.

    Now, I've just ordered 50 datawrite reds (x4) v2, and subsequently read some horror stories about version 1 of these discs reliability.
    However, SVP (where I ordered them from) say that the version 2 of these discs is completely different and are expected to be pretty reliable.
    Can anyone vouch for the reliability of these version2 discs to put my mind at rest?

    I've also ordered some 1x - 2x G03 Ritek discs at £5.99 for 10.
    Are these any good?

    I used a pack of these datawrite x4 and they all worked flawlessly.
    Using x4 in a x1 recorder should be more reliable than x1 media.

    Datawrite yellow have been less reliable for me, with a number failing in the middle of a batch of 50
