[QUOTE=siverweed;2077744] I will still have be careful about the type of dye rather than brand.[/quote]The Mediacode is not a code for “the type of dye”. Please, as a reseller, don’t spread the myth like other online shops do.
About the brand vs. Mediacode thing, both are just as important as the other:
First there are lots of indications that different brands do buy different grades of a given disc model from a manufacturer, for example nobody knows exactly why but Verbatim-branded Taiyo Yuden is alsmot always inferior to unbranded Taiyo Yuden, TY branded by Plextor (in the past), Panasonic or under TY’s own brand That’s. Also, a lot of CMC or Ritek production can be notoriously crappy under cheap brands, and generally of much better quality under more reputable brands like TDK, Maxell or HP. This is a general thing, there are exceptions sometimes.
Second, you have all the fake Mediacodes under brands like Mirror, Mediarange etc… so going by Mediacode can be a very misleading way to choose media.
Checking the mediacode is more important in terms of burner/reader compatibility than in terms of absolute “quality”.
But if you want to please your picky customers, I think you really have to mention de mediacode, AND the country of origin whenever it’s possible. Make this info as accurate as possible (both may change on a regular basis for a given brand/model of discs!!!) and your picky customers will be grateful.
