The biggest risks you're looking at are losing the CD or getting the top
scratched. Be careful labeling it (realistically get a good box and
label the box instead, this also helps with "don't lose it" and "don't
scratch it"). Check readability after you write.
The Mitsui/MAM-A gold's are just fine. As are (probably) the cheap
things you buy at the corner drugstore.
