There a so many posts and threads where folks give their opinion on what media is good and and what’s bad. But, I rarely if ever see Sony CD-R media mentioned either way!
Here in New York City Sony CD-Rs are sold all over the place – by Staples, Circuit City, The Wiz (before they closed), and all sorts of independent shops. They tend to be discounted frequently – sometimes to ~$10 for a 50pc spindle.
After more than a year of regular use (~300 discs – I burn mixed audio discs to give out a gigs I DJ) with no problems, I recently had a bad experience with 'em – but it turns out I’d gotten a bad batch. See my earlier post: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=71650
Now when I check the ATIP info on these discs they always come up as manufactured by Sony. Not Ritek, CMC, TY or any of the other manufacturers mentioned throughout this forum.
Has anyone else had any experience, positive or negative, with Sony branded CD-Rs?
Why are there so few mentions of Sony as a CD-R manufacturer?
