Fake Taiyo Yuden DVD-R

Infosmart used also Interaxia AG and Anwell’s generic MID codes and became infamous as one of the first and most important producers of media with fake MID codes.
In 2004-2006 the European market was flooded with such media produced by Infosmart, Jilin Qingda Digital Co. Ltd., Henan Kerry Digital Co., etc.

Sounds better than no reputation :wink:

Princo with TYG02-fake?

But overall not bad, my actual MBI seems more worse

Strange looking DVD-R, very thin and flimsy. Beside the typical top surface branding It has few “PRINCO” watermarks on the recording side.

Maybe rebadged Princo Slim?

But with TYG02-code it´s strange

Could you post some pictures?

PRINCO DVD-R Slim 24X? What MID are these?

PRINCORGM1.

Out of curiosity are these any better than the rest made by PRINCO?

Not really - their quality is more problematic and inconsistent.

I don’t have it anymore, it was quick burn and scan for a friend. But I think I know the place where he bought those discs. I’ll try to post few more scans and pictures from this media.

I have old Lifetec 1x and Princo 16x and have some very good scans, better than with many (all) of latest batches Verbatim.

But 2017 I burned my 1st Princo and can´t say anything about longevity
