Now, others with VX-1000's and 2000's say that Fuji tapes glitch a lot. I've used one so far, and no glitches.
I didn't find out if they cleaned the heads before switching tape brands though.

I've used about 5 Fuji tapes, no problems.
No glitches, or dropouts.

Panasonic tapes

I use PANASONIC AY-DVM63MQ (Master tapes) in my Sony PD 170 and other Sony Cameras without problems. Does Sony make a master of the same quality and does anyone not recommend this combination or these tapes........
