I'd second all that.
But I'd point out that while CMC has gotten better, it's still a far cry from a good YUDEN, MCC or MAXELL disc. It's actually quite ironic, their plants can produce good media for other companies (MCC,TDK), but they seemingly have no problems pooping out subpar media under their own flag.
I would add that some of that UK CMC stuff out there is mighty fishy. Those Bulkpaq's and other no-name brands. I often think CMC is being faked, but since legit CMC is so bad, it's almost hard to tell. That would be one way to safely fly under the radar, yet still rake in the money.
Unscrupulous manufacturers make this harder than it needs to be. :Z
