Little late at the party, but just wanted to add:
Duplication vs replication.

Burned disks suck always, but sometimes they suck less.
(I have a complaint percentage of less than 0.1 % on burned disks)
Rule of thumb when i burn (a few thousands a year):
ONLY use Tayo Yuden or Ritek. (i know, some of you like Verbatim, but i don't. Perhaps they are different over here...)
NEVER use VBR
NEVER let the datarate go over 7500
NEVER use printed sticky labels on DVD's
NEVER use dual layer.

For amounts over 200, i replicate rather than duplicate.
2 reasons:
at 200 pieces, price is the same. (More makes replication way cheaper)
Last job i've outsourced was 1.11 euro a piece on a 500 piece order.
That included full color artwork on the disk and inlay, an Ammaray box and packaging. It's close to impossible to beat that if you burn.

With replicated disks the datarate / vbr settings don't matter, go as high as the specs allow, and the disks will play everywhere. (Including old laptops, close to impossible with burned disks.)

And once you got a decent plant, it's easy. No problem at all to master, as DLT is dead.
Nowadays you deliver your files over the internet.
For the mentioned job i've FTP'd my work to the plant (about 850 KM from here). They shipped the disks to my client. No effort at all...
So why bother to burn (Unless you're in a terrible hurry. Delivery time from a plant is normally at least 7 days unless you're a real good customer...)
