Best Blank Double-Layer DVDs?

I'm finally getting back into downloading shows off of u2torrents now that I have a DL-dvd-R drive on my new computer. After discovering a few years back that there's a huge difference between a crappy blank DVD-R and a great DVD-R, I'm curious whether there are any brands of blank DL-DVDs that are truly the best.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I had to research that myself to get in on the latest and greatest bootlegs, and I read in multiple places that you should use Verbatim DVD+R DL discs, and to accept no substitutes.

So I bought those, and haven't had any problems with them. No idea if the "accept no substitutes" attitude is valid or not for DLs, but I haven't found a need to go find out.

Which is good, considering how pricey they are. I'd hate to try another brand and then be screwed with useless, crummy discs.

Thanks. That's what I figured after seeing the reviews on Amazon (Verbatim is pretty much the only thing that gets higher than 3 stars, and it's always 4.5 or 5 stars). Still, with the experience I'd had with a few dvd-r brands, I wanted to ask some real people before I dropped $30 or $50.

Thanks!

Not sure if they make dual layer, but as a general rule Taiyo Yuden produces the best media. Verbatim is also not a bad choice.
