    I have a sony GX3 and I have previously used Zero Defex+rw and Zero Defex+r, Bulkpaq orange DVD-r all have been fine. I thought i would give Ritek discs a try but after reading on another forum that the quality of Ritek manufactured disc has deteriated I am un-sure which disk to go for. the same forum says that Verbatim is good. I was wondering what other forum members use.

    I wouldn't use Verbatim. The quality has reduced since they chnaged manufacturers (CMC I believe).

    Grade A Riteks will be fine. These are brands such as Traxdata, Ridisc and Ridata. There Grade B discs such as Aritia have started to show problems after being burned a while ago.

    I thought only Verbatim's spindle discs were made by CMC? Their jewel case DVD-Rs are still very good quality discs.

    I bought some TDK DV-RW (1-2x) for my GX3 and they work a treat! I had some old datasafe knocking around from a year or two back and they were terrible - very slow in formatting/finalizing. The TDK are very fast in comparison: 10-20 seconds to format and 30 seconds to finalize (in video mode). I bought a box of 10 for around £20 including delivery. Think I got them from here:

    They read fine in my PC and RW compatible players also.
