I was wondering based on your experiences what is the best Blu-Ray blank media?  I know Taiyo Yuden is the best DVD but they do not make Blu-Ray.

I've had good luck with both and am only going to buy these in the future.

Optical Quantum 4X 25GB BD-R Blu-ray Blank Disc White Inkjet Hub Printable, 25 pcs.

It is a Phillips made disc.

Do your home work if your going to buy the LTH Verbatims, some hardware and settop players won't burn or play them.

Thanks cdanteek,

It looks like SupermediaStore.com added Taiyo Yuden 4X 25GB Inkjet Printable Blu-Rays to their inventory since I started this post, or I missed them! (it does say "NEW")  Think I will give the Yuden's a try first.

Thanks Again for your suggestion.

Thanks for the reminder! In my Yuden-find-tunnel-vission I didn't even notice.

I better stick with what will work for sure.

Thanks again!

If your burner is LTH compatible, you can't beat the price, AND Verbatim LTH disks are archival grade, for about $1 a pop.

If you are not sure, or don't have an LTH-compatible burner - your best bet today is probably TDK. There is A LOT of bad media in Blu Ray: Memorex, Ritek, Merax, VinPower etc. Even some highly reputable brands have had trouble: Verbatim non-LTH non-premium, Panasonic.

I would definitely be very careful about which Blu Ray media to pick, if the purpose is to have archival grade media:-)

Good luck -

LTH is not compatible with all Burners or Players...

Both must be tested before commiting to use ;)

I have much better success with Verbatim blank media, a 100 pack of Yuden DVD-R was put in the trash. I myself am just starting Blu Ray burning, so will go with the Verbatim media. Hope to report same GREAT results of nearly 100 %.

Personally I have never had any problems with TY media - however, because of its reputation there are fake discs in circulation - you may think they're TY, but they aren't
