    I've been using these DVC Tapes for years.

    I use them both in my personal equipment as well as for professional applications. I do allot of work for a small cable access station that has used this particular tape stock for use with The Panasonic DVX-100A&B. Our work flow consists of Recording to tape, capturing in Final Cut Via a Sony DSR-11 DV Deck, and setting the tape on a shelf for storage. Once captured we rarely have to go back to the original media and therefore do little scrubbing. I would imagine that constant scrubbing would probably result in drop outs with any level of Mini DV tape. But in the work flow that we use (with periodic use of a head cleaning cassette's) i have never seen a drop out or had an issue with this tape stock.

    I wouldn't recommend reusing these tape more than once (or any mini dv media for that matter). This tape stock is probably best used to record once through, capturing, and setting on the shelf in case you ever need to go back to it.

    I recently bought a batch of these tapes for use with my personal HDV Canon HV30, and intend to use them consistently as my sole tape stock due to their inexpensiveness and relatively good quality.

    Have had only a few drop-outs, and some of those may be camera-related (usually on an old Canon XL1). One annoyance is when I shoot on the boss's Canon and capture using my Sony DSR11 deck, FCP constantly loses time code and stops. I have to instead capture using my Panasonic HVX200, and even then there are some dropped frames. Shooting and capturing from the HVX200 yields much better results. Can't beat the price, and I haven't seen quality difference between this and the discontinued Excellence series.

    Don't waste your money on the more expensive HDV tapes if your not shooting in HDV. Even if you are shooting HDV these are fine in lesser important angles of you are shooting from several cams.

      Use these MiniDV tapes in a Sony HVR-A1U. B&H photo has competitive pricing and, so far, ample stock. Have used these tapes to shoot several documentary projects and quality and durability is excellent.

                    I work for a local school district, so I tape about 50-60 events per school year. I try to purchase Sony products to use in my Sony camera. They work well together, and the tape has no trouble handling HI Def filming from the camera. I don't like the limit of only 60 minutes when using hi def, but if I film in regular format, I can get 90 minutes per tape, and the quality is fine for internet viewing. I've never had a problem with the quality or reliability of the tapes themselves.

                      I am filming a project on a Canon XHA1 for school, so very low budget, the two "discount" retailers in town had prices 2-5x what B&H had. Arrived carefully packed with low shipping cost. I purchased quite a few for an overseas trip. probably will order more before I leave.

                                          I have always used the Sony DVM-60 tape for multiple day events and never had one fail in any way.
