Best HD mini DV?

I just got a Sony HVR-A1U, and it came prepackaged with a mini DV (item number PHDVM-63DM) that says it has 60% fewer dropouts and 95% fewer errors than a regular DV tape. I was wondering if this was true, and if it is, where is a good place to get more? Every place I can find on the internet is some place I've never even heard of, and I'm wary of using them. I was also wondering if there is another high end HDV mini DV cassette that would work just as well or better than this Sony one, since I'm sure I'm paying for the name. Just about the only other HDV tape I can even find is also Sony, but it doesn't say anything about being dual-layered or higher quality. So I was just curious about people's opinions who regularly shoot in HDV. Thanks!
