US. Looking mainly for CD-R atm. I want top quality and longevity so at this point I'm thinking about the 100 spindle TYs for $28 at several sites.
My only concern tho (as a few others have mentioned) is the durability of the 'blank' unlabeled silver top TYs. I've seen a thread that says a needle can easily tear up the top plastic coating (whereas it would be harder for a branded/labeled CD-R). Also, I fear that a black marker would make it slightly less readable, at least in the long run.
Should I just be looking for Fuji's or whatever 'made in Japan' at local stores for higher prices?
