Are these TY?

vbimport

#1

are JVC dvd-rs in packs of 30 with the code
MJC ME
Taiyo yuden, or are they some random crap?


#2

I have done a quick Google for MJC ME and Taiyo Yuden and I have not found any connection.
I would say they are not Taiyo Yuden, and they are not advertised as such.


#3

ah ok
i thought the 30 pack was a little odd and that might point to TY


#4

I don’t know for sure anyway


#5

There is a good possibility that they are TYG02 discs if they are 8X discs.

#6

On the inner hub of the disc you should see a GG000xx for TYG02 or GH000xx for TYG03 serial number, if not it is probably not real TY. HTH. :slight_smile:


#7

MJC ME is a company in Singapour.
i have no idea of the quality though.

Singapour usually=true MCC discs (mitsubishi chemicals). Anyways, figure out which country they are made in and let us know.


#9

I have these discs MJC ME the disc is called mitsubishi black diamond 4 speed Although they burn at 8 speed I would not recommend burning them at this speed however they seem to preform well at 4 speed and they are made in singapour. I dought they are mcc as mitsibushi black diamond products are not remotly related to mcc.


#10

There are at least three companies making discs in Singapore:
Mitsubishi Chemical: mostly HS-CD-RW, HS-DVD-RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, soon HD-DVD
Fornet: Azo CD-R
MJC: DVD,
Totally unrelated to TY :slight_smile:

mark_244: Do you have scans of those?
Those are unrelated to Mitsubishi Chemical/Verbatim, but are sold by Mitsubishi Electric instead. They are not very popular.


#11

I have seen one or two scans of these MJC discs and the results looked good. I can’t recall if they were JVC or not. The only place I’ve seen these is in a Big Lots store, I have been tempted to buy them to try out but I already have a ridiculous amount of discs. :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

It is not that good

I’ve tried only one JVC disc (in jewel case Made In [B]MALYSIA[/B]) and it is crap (compared to TY or MCC).


#13

Here is a “Mitsubishi Diamond” branded +R 8x Version. Burned in October 2005 in my BenQ 1620. Looks like its started to deteriorate towards the edge.



#14

The above scan burned at 16x (my preferred speed) shows problems towards the end of the disc. I always scan at 16x for my own testing because the results are much closer to the TRT slowdowns than when scanning at 8x.



#15

Well, MJC has factories in several countries.
So not everything MIS is good too. :frowning:
I wonder what MIJ Unifino and Kitano perform like…


#16

Kitano 4x DVD-R used to be of high quality (comparable to TY, Verbatim).
I never used Unifino so I cant tell.
The new 8x and Dl discs from Kitano are not that good…
But I will link you some Q-test results.
Kitano 4x:

#18

Doesn’t look like MJC.
ME 153 is another media code from possibly another company.
But not good media from what it looks like.


#19

I get 2 different codes the code before burning is mjc me and the code after burning is mjc 153
