I think they’re ProDisc… will investigate my local FS later today to be sure :slight_smile: My local BestBuy Fujis have been ProDisc lately, so I’m hoping these are the MIJ babies… anybody have some of these bought online?


#2

Update: they’re either Prodisc crap or the beautiful Taiyo Yuden T02, depending on country of manufacture. Taiwan or Japan, take your pick.
Still plenty left.


#3

They could also be these if Made in Taiwan as there is new Fujifilm DVD+R 8x MIT are RitekR03 or RicohJpn02-Fuji looks like want reduce retail prices but also unfortunately reduce quality .


#4

I’m getting mine tommorrow (ordered online) - crossing my fingers (please be T02!!! :bow: )


#5

good luck! I had to go to the store to check out stock, seemed like equal amounts of Taiwanese and Japanese Fujis… I got a 50-stack of the Taiwanese last time, and they were awful Prodisc.
My new stacks are TY02, so far so good!


#6

here’s a scan… first and only one burnt so far :slight_smile:



#7

yup, definitely Taiyo Yuden… this is the second disc, burnt @ 8x w/BenQ DW1620, v.B7T9



#8

Made in Taiwan!!! aaaaaarrrggghhh!!! :sad:


#9

Send them back and ask for MIJ discs only.


#10

Can you do that??? They were bought online and the nearest FS is 80 miles away!


#11

Ya thats a long ways away. Future Shop has a pretty good return Policiy if you were closer. Sorry to hear that you got Made in Taiwan.:sad:


#12

I’m buying up all the MIJ from my local store :slight_smile: I just did a 16x burn, the scan is better than my previous scans with ANY (non-TY) media at ANY speed! w000t!!
After this, I’ll never buy cheap shit like BenQ (DAXON) or Prodisc media again… all this time I thought it was just my burners that weren’t very good :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

I’d send back the MIT discs and ask for the MIJ. THey should be able to do that for you, and they’re currently doing a web survey (got it in the email) about customer satisfaction online, so they should certainly care about your opinion (until end of this week).
Return 'em. Ask for an exchange.


#14

guys where do i check to see if they are made in taiwan or japan ? i hope someone will answer soon, the promo ends today and the store closes in 4 hours :frowning:

thanks a lot


#15

check your local store. It says on the packaging where the discs are made… also, the packaging is different: Taiwanese Fujis are a vertical cylinder, whereas the Japanese Fujis are tapered from the base up to the top.


#16

awesome dude thanks a lot :smiley: i just came back with 200 DVDs :smiley: i noticed they had 75% taiwanese ones and 25% japanese ones in the store


#17

Well i kept the MIT discs and they burn pretty good on my Benq and LG.Nero Qscan at 96% with less than 1000 pi failures. The Benq overspeeds them at 12X but burning them at that speed gives less than stellar results :frowning: They are not Prodiscs but Ritek R03 rev 2. Still bummed they are not MIJ, was looking foward to some 16X burning :sad:


#18

I’d prob. keep the Riteks too… however, T02 is my new favourite media! Plus my $30 Verbatims from Amazon finally came in, MCC 03, almost as good as the Taiyo Yudens!!

If ONLY they were printable :slight_smile:

How about a couple scans from the MIT Riteks??

Hi there!

I agree, that all people want to get these Yuden Fujis! But two things to think about:

  1. There are many different batches and some of them are not that good (ok, good enough, but not THAT good Yudens ment to be)! Especially the new batches:

  2. A look at the ritek-fujis is worth a try! They´re really fine! So have a look here:

  3. The riteks are really cheaper! Get them for 9 Euro / 25! (So in Germay)
