Panasonic Mini DV tapes

All you tape experts out there......

I am wondering what is the difference between these 4 types of Panasonic tapes.

What do you get for your extra money that you spend on the more expensive tapes ?

Better quality tape? Better quality shell? Nicer wrapping? Dryer lube? :-))

I got a PDF file all about Pana tape. I'll be uploading it to my site and then starting a new thread with a link.

Thanks for the effort Frank but it doesn't really answer my original question.

Also like other people said, it makes Pana tapes look sooo good and the other like trash.

Frank, have you ever used 80 minute tapes and had any bad expierences with any ? Just curious.

I have never used 80 minute miniDV tapes, and I never will. They are thinner. No thanks! :-))
