Default Archival DVD sources in UK?

Does anybody in the UK have recommendations for sources of archival recordable DVDs (and brands if possible)?

I'm not sure if DVD+R is any better than DVD-R (this article http://tinyurl.com/ykxj84 implies it is).

Thanks in anticipation for any help,

Alan

We use for years without any problem Verbatim "Crystal" "super Azo" DVD's both for videos and data storage…





We buy them online there:
http://www.nierle.com/

They have both R and -R
They deliver fast

No, I am not related to Verbatim or Nierle!

I use Delkin archival DVD's (from Warehouse Express), they have a 100 year guarantee. Fuji make archival DVD's which are cheaper but I'm happy with the Delkin's.

Thanks, Ben. warehouseexpress.com is a site I often use for photographic & printing accessories, so I'll bear that in mind for next time I place an order.
