Re: Dvd brands...the best
Nope, infact, alot of people don't notice the difference between branded, and non-branded. The fact is, they usually have the same speed as the branded counterparts.
I personally do buy un-branded ones.
The manufacturers of cause say these won't last as long on the shelf as branded ones, and that they are more prone to errors, etc. Yet, as for errors, I've never encountered anything.
When shelf life is concerned, branded can last 100+ years, while unbranded may only last around 30 years... I'd say thats enough.
With anything though, treating it right will help it last longer. For instance, not placing the discs under bright sunlight.
