Ryan, my experiences were similar with the AMQ tapes. I didn't get the dirty head warning but got incredible amounts of dropouts suddenly, after quite a number of tapes with zero problems. It seems with those tapes there must be some manufacturing irregularities resulting in good and bad batches.

the way the tapes are made....?

My film professor told my class only to use Sony tape due to the way that they are manufactured....

....I was a little skeptical of this particular instruction from him but maybe he's on to something :)
