There were two types of spindles for the DVD+R 100 pack. The one that I purchased did NOT have a cake box and had the following labelling:
Note the MADE IN TAIWAN above the UPC code.
The second type of spindle was in a cakebox and I do distinctly remember that those said MADE IN HONG KONG. Those might be the ones you will want to shy away from...
The SKU # was exactly the same for both types of spindles, and the sale price was applied to both. I'm glad I chose the right spindle!
Re. the actual discs... they have the standard plain silvery finish (you won't be able to see this when they are packaged and on the shelves in the store). These discs do not have the CompUSA brand burned into each disc (you can see an example of those if you go into the store and look at the CompUSA 25-pack spindles).
