I would add Lite-On to the list.  I've had several, including a stand-alone 
DVD recorder, and been highly satisfied with them.

Memorex to a range that they call "Memorex Professional" - about 10% more 
expensive than their basic range.  I've found that I can let K3B run 
full-tilt on them, doing a fast burn and getting good results.  Prior to 
finding them I always had to throttle back.

The only problem with K3B is that on some installations it ejects the disk 
after the burn, then fails to pull it in again for the verify, so that you 
have to manually run md5sum or sha1sum to check it.
