I dont believe anyone outside Europe needs to be afraid about this. But anyway ... be suspicious if you see such discs. I was quite surprised when I saw that the TE was outside the graph!
yeah - they are big enough so they can afford that ... As the plastic wrapping was open of course, it was nice to see what impact an email from Sony Europe and 2 BenQ Qscans of this crap had. Again this shows how important it is to exercise your consumer rights! But I am still angry because it was a waste of time - and therefore I will not buy Sony DVD+Rs again for a while. This is how to damage a well known brand! But as we see every day, even HP and others do that
Normally a back-channeling of cheap stuff from eastern Europe should happen only for small shops or mail-order business, one would think. But I would think a company the size of MediaMarkt (=Saturn, Metro) would negotiate directly with Sony ...
