JVC Blu-ray media?

anyone have an idea what MIDs these might be?

Really good topic.

I have been wondering what these could be: JVC Blu-ray Disc 50GB 4X BD-R DL

[QUOTE=nekrosoft13;2290218]anyone have an idea what MIDs these might be?[/QUOTE]

not just the DL, but the SL as well. All I know they are made in Japan.

I’ve been wondering this myself a lot. They are all made in Japan and the specs on them are usually the same as the various TDK discs (50gb 4x with 23-118mm print area for example), pricing is usually very close to the TDKs too.

I’ve got way too many loose discs at the moment to justify opening up any 10 packs but I may order some singles and get the mids off them…

I’m also really curious about their dvd media it’s all MIJ too and looks to be quality.

Taiyo Yuden acquired the JVC recordable media branch some time back. http://uk.reuters.com/article/rbssIndustryMaterialsUtilitiesNews/idUKT13450420080526 So the dvd media is almost certainly TY.

wow, how come JVC DVD media in USA is some WFA something from China.

Yeah that’s what I assume too, some of their blu-rays are LTH type too which I believe only TY makes. I am going to order a small variety today and run some scans of both blu-rays and dvds, I’ve been curious for a while now.

Also btw here is a lovely little manga titled Made in Nippon for the JVC fans haha. :slight_smile:

I believe the JVC brand using TY media is mostly headed for Europe. At least, that is my impression from reading in the Blank Media forum. They may eventually show up here in the US.

to bad, would be nice if you could find some TYs at brick and mortal stores.

can’t understand Japanesse :p. BTW this is not about JVC fan or not, just being curious and wanting to know. I buy media from different manufactures, have my favorite, but to have a favorite you need to try quite a few.

Man meets disc, man falls in love with disc, they marry and live happily ever after. :smiley: Actually it’s just explaining what LTH is and how blu-ray rocks the world, etc etc…

Anyway I took the plunge and used this as an excuse to go to the local Yamada Electronics. Picked up 5 packs of JVC bd-r lth 2x and 4x bd-rs, and also a 10+1 pack of their 16x dvd-r with a bonus 8x dvd-r dl as the +1.

I have really no need for more 50gb bd-rs right now so unless we get a damaged return or something I’m not opening a pack of those. My guess is they are exact same as the TDK 4x 50gbs.
