John -

Mitsui brand is touted as being the best.  HHB, I believe, buys their
discs from Mitsui.

Mostly you can only find the high speed discs, unless you get the
HHBs.  I buy CD-R stock from

They don't carry HHB - you have to go to a pro audio dealer for that.
I don't buy them as I don't have a slow-speed burner.

I'd use Mitsui for high-speed burns from computer, and HHB for
low-speed burns, as in a standalone CD recorder.

I'm going to start archiving stuff on DVD-R.  CDR is just way too
small to be convenient.  I've found some encouraging info regarding
long-term stability, but hard to tell if it's really reputable info.
Anybody out there have experience with this?
