    I can't offer my own thoughts since I've never used either of these that I can remember, but I can point you in a good direction.

    Verbatim

    Ritek

    I've use the verbatim dvds... They are supposedly very good and long lasting, and I've never had a problem with them

    Haven't used Verbatim's DVD's but I have a stack of their CD-R's and they work just fine.

    I've been under the impression that Verbatim is considered to be one of the "quality" manufacturers

    Verbatim disks are very high quality but highly over-priced.

    Don't particularly like the dye (by Mitsubishi Chemical I think) used in Verbatim disks, it needs more energy and consequently makes my burner a little hot.

    I prefer disks using Ritek G05 dye (Ridisc Xtreme), I can even burn the 8x rated disks at 16x and still have my burner stay cooler than with the Verbatim dye.
