Hmm, a few questions

well, i've always used TDK tapes in my Canon Zr100 and i haven't had too many problems unless i accidently rerecorded over tape.

recenlty i ran out and had to use a friends JVC tape (knowing it was bad to mix tape brands) and i had a few drop outs, so i went to the store today to get a head cleaner (maxell dry type) and i saw some sony premiums on sale, so i picked those up. i got home, put the head cleaner in for 8 seconds and then tryed out one of the sony premiums, seems to work so far, no dropouts or glitching

basically my question is, should i just stick with sony prems?

i'm getting a VX2100 in jan. and i plan on using sony premium tapes with that...

Tapes are like <$3 each online... buy a whack of one brand and you could potentially just stick with that one brand.
