Francksoy: It is true, MCC discs do VERY well in accelerated aging tests. I don't know, perhaps the "problem" (if it exists) does not show up in accelerated aging tests? It's plausible...
You should probably know that MCC004 is probably tied for my #1 most burned MID, along with YUDEN000T02, so I'm not completely anti-MCC, if you know what I mean. I'm just saying there may sometimes be longterm issues which need to be investigated a little further. If anyone else here has old (1+ years) MCC discs, I'd love to see how they scan. :iagree:
Here are a few examples of the problems I was referring to in the HWZ thread. If you have the time, I'd recommend reading the whole thread, as it's quite interesting.
JayC30: You bring up some good points regarding media storage. I can't tell you for how the HWZ posters store their media, though. It's probably also worth noting that HWZ is a predominantly Singaporean forum, which mean high humidity and heat are the norm. I know MacClipper reads this forum, so maybe he could offer some insight?
karangguni: You too, raise some valid points. These "pinky stripe" Mitsubishi discs may be part of the problem. It is also true that Asia (excluding Japan, of course) may be a dumping ground for MCC. I wouldn't know, though.
