I have had excellent results with standard SVHS tape. No dropouts as a result of the tape. You can use DVHS or Pro grade SVHS if you just want to throw more money at this. The main difference in Pro grade tape vs. standard consumer SVHS tape is the packaging, shell and box, label set etc. Even more expensive is the Master grade which is heavier backcoating designed to handle the rigors of editing. IMHO and professional opinion, consumer grade SVHS Fuji works very well in this application and is a good bang for the buck.
I have been buying from Tapewarehouse for awhile and find their service and pricing very good. I usually get delivery next day because they are local for UPS ground. I have to call them to request UPS ground because their web order site only seems to work for Fed EX.
