My research has led me to:

Mid-range budget Sony EX tapes.

High budget Sony DigitalMaster tapes.

Don't bother with low-budget tapes unless you are shooting home videos on your cheap MiniDV camera. If you have a HD10u...get at LEAST the mid-range tapes.

It's DVCAM, but can be used in DV cameras.

Just make sure it's not "full size" DV tape because most cameras are mini-DV sized.
