You can buy cheaper than Verbatim, but you can't buy better. My computer guru son, who goes through tons of media, tells me that he has tried every brand on the market, but keeps going back to Verbatim. Sturdy, record and play in virtually any machine. Buy on the spindle and get the cases separately-better deal and sometimes just an envelope is needed. Why take chances with your work to save a few shekels? Buy the best, use them judiciously-winning combo.
Recording quality does not decrease with re-use-up to 1000 uses.
