Tons of posts on different brands. Search on your brand name to read about it. As for +R? Read my post above again.
Verbatims, TDK's, and Apples typically listed as choice, but pricey.
Riteks and Meritlines popular for the bargains.
Accu has had some success for me at 2X on my A04 with 1.31 2X for all hacked firmware.
Lead Data (1X) and the "True 2X" (TDK Clones, 2X) have worked well for me as well.
It's a bit of a crap shoot when you go cheap. But the Riteks and Meritlines seem to come out on top often. If you have a 4X drive, you may need to get a firmware update (or in some cases a downgrade) to make Riteks or other "generic" 2X work right at 2X. You can get more info about this issue here:
