[QUOTE=SpotOn;2768516]Whew, I guess I was over reacting a bit there. I don’t read Japanese, so searching on Japanese sites always proves difficult, and I was getting a little worried. But now that you mention it and I think about it, the That’s brand has Made In Japan (in Japanese) slapped all over it - so I should be good to go. Caught this news just in the nick of time I guess!
Hrmmm now that I think about it, I also wonder if there is any difference in CD-R quality between That’s (speed usually rated 1-40x) vs the Professional TY sold by Rima (speed rated 52x). I will have to do a forum search![/QUOTE]
I s/w Media Supply yesterday (my supplier of choice) They’ve still got stock on JVC/TY & they’re now expecting it to last a couple more months.
My big concern is per MS there will likely be NO 8x +'s of any quality left once these are gone…
MS is launching there own line of self branded AZO due to this issue, they will send out samples.
For what it’s worth, I’ve had the best luck with JCDR-ZZ-SK (Pro CD in tape wrap) & JDPR-ZZ-SB8 (Pro 8x+ DVD) (though I wish the dvd+r’s were offered in tape wrap; JVC stopped using spacers awhile back & the discs bounce inside the container during shipping.)
I hope their house brand is good enough for MOD retail. I have just under 300 of the real TY’s; I hope to have them last a couple years for personal use.
The other issue I’ve experienced with JVC TY over the last 2 years or so is that quality varies significantly from package to package. The pack I’m using now is excellent; but I won’t know about the other 2 until I open them.
