it's the top coating. silver lacquer is the cheapest but it's like there's no coating, it leaves fingerprints. there's some pictures on this site:
Taiyo Yuden Blank DVD, Taiyo Yuden Inkjet Cdr & Taiyo Yuden Dvdr Canada
the thing you have to look for is if they're tyg02 (labeled as 8x but can burn up to 12x) or tyg03 (labeled as 16x). from what I know the tyg02 are better than the tyg03

I've used mainly Memorex and Verbatim. Both are very reliable but I'm currently buying Verbatim only.

If you do choose T-Y DVD media, be sure to get the 8x speed rated ones. That company's 16x speed rated discs are much less consistent in quality than their 8x ones -- and most of the 16x discs from them are equally as "horrible" as the average Ritek or CMC disc.
