I have been pondering this for a while and actually found an excellent review on disks and probably more than you're looking for.http://blog.consumerpla.net/2011/01/...iew-guide.html
Down near the bottom of each page, click "Next>>" to get through all of the articles. I think around page 22 or so, you get some actual comparisons on disks. I usually use Verbatim or TDK, that is prior to reading this article again.
BD-R, recordable once
DL-Dual Layer or twice the amount recordable
Recording speed is a factor, don't spend more expensive 6X recordable disks if your burner only burns at a max 4X, etc.
Don't buy DL disks if your burner won't burn DL... or RE if it won't do RE disks.
Find out the specs on your burner before you buy.
Personally, I'm going to get a bunch of cheap ones for testing and toss, some good ones for saving, and some DL for big movies - I have grand plans...
I'll probably get a few RE just to test. Rerecording still has me scratching my head.
In regard to "archiving" long term? I keep the original movies/format backed up on 3 separate HD. Fun stuff.
