Don't be fooled into thinking Gold DVDs are better than silver recordable DVDs. Gold discs have poor reflectivity and the dye quality hasn't burned well in tests performed by industry professionals. Buying gold blank DVDs will get you mediocre media at premium prices. Don't buy gold DVDs. They are a waste of money.
Taiyo Uden DVDs with waterproof dvd technology might be the right choice if you need extra durability. Unlike normal inkjet DVD-Rs, WaterShield DVDs are water resistant, scratch resistant, and feature a glossy finish which produces great eye-popping color when printed.
- Media ID
Knowing the Media ID of your blank DVDs is even more important than knowing the brand. Media IDs can tell you if your blank DVD was manufactured by a reputable company or a counterfeit company using fake IDs. It is not written on packaging or anywhere else. To find the media ID code, put a blank disc into your computer DVD burner drive. You will need to install special software that can read the ID such as ImgBurn or Toast. The resulting media ID code will correspond to a specific manufacturer.

- Warranty & Return Policy
Discs with fake IDs are an annoyance and can ruin a great project. Most fake media comes from China. Found more often in Europe and Asia than in the USA, it is found in street markets, on eBay and online resellers who have put profit first and quality and integrity second.
DVD companies that advertise bulk DVDs on Alibaba.com are often Chinese and Taiwanese manufacturers selling their own cheaply-made, low quality media with faked Mitsubishi and Taiyo Yuden media IDs. In some cases, these companies don't even have their own media IDs. Their only goal is to turn a quick profit with no interest in creating a quality product in good faith. Buyer beware!
