You just named them. Also, HP is worth noting. Because....

Their engineering background really comes to bear and they really do meet "specs."

A downfall in your question is that you didn't tell what "best" means to you. For some they mean cheap, others mean scratch resistant and for some, they mean something else.

Thanks, Bob. By "best," I meant those that are scratch resilient and safe for keeping data for many years.

Maxell at the top of your list. Verbatim gets good marks on tests, and 'blue' dyes are considered quite good for longevity.

Hi Kiddpeat,
What did you mean by blue dye?

Gold and blue indicate two of the best chemicals.

in the absence of test data, I favor the brands which achieved the best results with CDs. Thus, my continuing preference for Verbatim, Maxell, and Matsui. I think if they were careful before, the odds are that they still are.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
