Japan & Tawain DVD Media?

I’ve been using Maxel,Taiyo yuden, -R made in Japan DVD which i had stock up on about 3 months ago. But lately, ALL the TDks,Maxels are showing up in the stores made in tawain?? What gives, why is it gettting harder to find the ones made in Japan???Any thoughts?

Probably comes down to profit!

Significantly lower costs of production in Taiwan than in Japan (or Singapore) and, sadly, most people aren’t willing to pay the slightly higher price necessary for Japanese or Singapore manufactured media. :frowning:
