CANADA taiyo yudens, 50 cents ea. (best buy)

vbimport

#1

sold as fujifilm 8x +/- in 50pc cakeboxes for $24.99 each. that’s 50 cents a disc (57.4 cents if we include tax)

not the best deal, but i thought 57 cents per disc was pretty good, especially for canada, we dont see many yudens

they also have verbatin (MMC004) and memorex (moser baer india) but more expensive.


#2

Also found 100 Pack Fujifilm DVD+R 8x "Made in Japan" YUDEN000 T02. for $49.00 at Future Shop. May only be Western Canada.:slight_smile:


#3

cool. not very surprising either since they are the same company


#4

That’s right I forgot about that.:iagree:


#5

Which is better, the Fujifilm 8x DVD+R or the -R.
I have been using Ridata 8x +R, since I managed to missed all the sales at BB or FS. Hope I can get some tomorrow, but don’t know which is better, +R or -R? Which one can do 12x?


#6

Be very careful that you look for Made In Japan as the -R Made in Japan are Taiyo Yuden TYG02 and if Made in Taiwan they are ProdiscF01 very different in quality. Both TY +R and -R are very good quality and it is really personal preference although most would disagree and say +R is better. I find they both write very well and both will burn at 16x depending on your burner.HTH. :slight_smile:

The -R’s can also be Fujifilm03 MID, which are OK but not as good as the TYG02’s. The “BenQ 8× DVD-R” sold by Futureshop are often Fujifilm03 (sometimes Sony 08D11) and are often on sale for less than 50¢ each.

Good to know I always wondered what MID the BenQ 8x was but I wasn’t going to buy any just to find out what they were. Was just in Future Shop tonight and checked out the Fujifilm 8x DVD+R 100 pack and it has a clear top you can see the TG001133 S/N on the inner disc if you look hard enough. As you can tell I don’t wan’t any fake TY.:slight_smile:


#9

Thanks for the reply. So, I need to buy +R and made in Japan to be sure it is TY.


#10

Yep and like I said the 100 Packs don’t have the blue fujifilm label on top of the first disc so you can actualy see the TY serial # on the top disc.:iagree:


#11

Thanks for all the advice. I went to BB today at Laird and bought the last one of 50 pack 8x +R made in Japan for 24.99. The s/n shows TG01158 (not 01133). I hope it is the right stuff. FS has the 100 pack and has the TG01158 (it does look like 01133 depending on the lighting). I just bought the 50 pack from BB since I bought some Ridata 16x recently (and it is not good).


#12

Fuji +Rs were all TY last time I checked. I have had rotten luck with defective Fuji labeled TYs though, so I won’t touch anything but an unbranded TY disc anymore. :wink:


#13

I tested it and it is the real stuff: :wink:

Sorry, image is too small. But it does say 16x and both PE and PI are under the limits.

Great now you have to Post a scan in the BenQ DARE Thread. Just kidding,:wink:
