I love CDs and LPs, but don't have much patience with tapes or CDR.
Just noticed this while looking at the death of the CD thread.
I can't say I see much difference between the two. Longevity is probably my biggest concern but otherwise they're pretty much the same. I recently had a CDR turn up which had been lacquered on the front and you could see the finger prints under the lacquer. A very personal touch I thought.
