Hi Guys new here.
I've been a long time Verbatim MCC user (get them when they are on sale at Best buy or Amazon etc, generally about 0.40 per PC), then I stumple upon this forum and noticed everyone seem to prefer TY over MCC (I understand that BOTH are good media). I've also noticed many threads about fake TYs so I did a little checking on forum and learned TYs from Supermediastore, Rima or Meritline should be genuine. I decided to get it form Meritline (since they also have the CDR on sale with coupon) and figured their "shiny" blank DVDR prices are even lower than the retail verbatim I usually get, so hey less costs for superior media... Why not.
Then I saw this thread. http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=144181 . Agh.. If my memory serves me right, ppl were saying genuine TY should have a code that start with GDDxxxxx or TYxxxx on the middle plastic rim, and mine says E4D09133XXX. Does that mean I got some fake ones? If so I'm quite disappointed and I'll just stick to Verbatim from now on.... Too much risks and hassle trying to "chase" after the genuine TY. I also got 100 TY CDRS from Meritline... Fake too?
Here's my quality scan. This is the first time I did this and I have no idea how to interpret this graph?
