Best DL DVD+R for archiving

Until BluRay is fast (8X) and cost effective or XDCAM disk do HQ I am backing up on 500GB hard drives and DVD's.

I have a question regarding DL DVD+R's.

What DL DVD+R are people using?
Where is the best place to buy?
And how is it working splitting a 16 GB card to two DL DVD's?

as far as I know Tayo Yuden are among the best brand of DVDs. They are not the cheapest ones (of course...) but I buy it in large quantities (200pcs) and so the price is okay. I know good places in Germany but not outside the country, sorry.

I couldn't believe the low price I was able to purchase DVDs for at Galerie Kaufhof in Berlin last summer! American prices (even with the exchange rate) are higher in most cases.

As far as splitting a 16 GB SXS:

XDCAM EX Clip Browser has a function called "split" (it's under menu/edit/slit) which lets you divide a 16 GB SXS into two or more folders and archive them in two separate DL DVDs

Hakan great link.

Pavlos I was not clear in my first post let me try again.
When using the split function in Clip Browser to put one 16 GB card on two DL DVD's Have people been doing this and does this work well?

Thanks Ranier I will see if I can find Tayo Yuden disk.

BR is not fast but the costs of BR v DL DVD per gb are surprising!
TDK BR - 25gb for 8.05 = 32.2p per gb
Taiyo Yuden DL DVD - 8.5gd for 3.05 = 35.88p per gb

Brendan I went for Verbatim DVD+R DV (95484). It is nice to see BR is that cost effective when it comes to back up. But for this trip I will be on the road and burning off my Macbook Pro so no BR option.

I look forward to faster and more compatible BR burners. Not sure when the next round of burners are coming but Clients are starting to ask.
