    Recently bought a pack of 3 Memorex "Super High Quality" E-180 blank tapes, to replace the really old tapes I was using for soaps, etc.

    The brand new tapes were even worse than the old ones, with regular picture dropouts, noise, streaks, and so on.

    Took them back and replaced them like for like, but still the same.

    Tried the tapes on another VCR - same result.

    I'll take them back again - what brand should I get this time?
