Recordable blu-ray disc general discussion
#1
Just some random thoughts to start the discussion:
  • "normal" BD-R/RE are HTL ("High to low"), using inorganic material for the recording layer
  • BD-R/RE LTH ("Low to high") use organic dye, like CD-R and DVD-R
  • BD-R/RE HTL have a provisional life of several hundred years, when stored correctly
  • M-DISC life may be just a little bit longer than non-M-DISC ones
  • discs places in direct contact with plastic starts to lose data after few years
  • the only "standard" disc read by any BD player is the BDAV one, without menus
  • BDMV discs, with or without menus, could be not read by all BD players
  • even top software can't improve compatibiliy of authored BDMV discs
  • the only 100% compatible discs are the pressed ones!
Discuss!

I only use HTL discs, end of discussion ahah! They only cost marginally more than LTH

I would add that some older players don't read BR made of one long chapter (I know of a Samsung model that has this problem)

I preserve movies as they first appeared in Italy.

The original M-Discs were DVDs as they were the first DVDs to use an inorganic layer, I'm not sure what the point is of M-Disc Blu Rays as the technology is similar (except maybe an excuse to charge more). 
The biggest problem with BDs is ironically the scratch proof coating, it takes on the texture of whatever it touches. It flattens out again over time, but it will cause read/write errors if you try to use them when affected. This is especially a problem when you buy discs online which have been repackaged, usually in paper sleeves. So always keep your BDs in a case or on a spindle guys and gals!

Time to experiment with BD-50 - and not only!

I want to hear your opinion on which brands to choose - and the ones to avoid.

The general consensus seems to consider Verbatim the top notch, thanks to its Hard Coat protection. I would use them for archival purposes.

For everyday use, I would like something a bit more cheaper, because it seems that printed media would fail earlier anyway, so... Big Grin
Ideas? Here on amazon.it there are some less known (by me, at least) brands, like Mediarange, that *seems* reasonably priced.

And what's about other important brands? TDK has that "Super Hard Coating", but costs twice as much as Verbatim; Panasonic, Sony, JVC, That's cost all more than Verbatim...

I would always go for the verbatim brand. Mediarange has some scary reviews (one talking about air bubbles within the disk!)
