Did a search here and checked a few (most are production houses with no way to order via net). Went the google route and didn't do much better.

Understand D-9 tape times are double the advertised time in W-VHS??

Thanks,
Tim

Yes, TapeWarehouse has the Fuji brand which I've found to be very good. I've had problems with QC on the many JVC D9's I've used, so I definitely reccomend Fuji. Roughly double the specified time (a little less in practice).

HiDefGuy,

Have received a few Fuji's from TapreResources & they are getting me a D-9 head cleaner, as suggested. Will price compare with TapeWarehouse.

Thanks,
Tim

SR-W5U review coming. Pretty happy with purchase.
