Do a google search for lots of choices. Some of the better quality PC retail stores may also carry better quality products. I guess a lot depends on your needs versus your budget.

    I would add to Ted's post that how you store them plays a factor as well. Store them at a moderate temperature, in a dry, dark place, preferably sealed in something like a plastic container will increase their longevity. I make backups of photos shot in RAW format to 2 disks. I have always used fairly inexpensive media. I have disks that are going on 10 years old that are perfectly readable. No disk is guaranteed to last more than a certain period of time, so I don't rely on single copies.
