Are these always Taiyo Yuden TYG02 or are there any exceptions??

Thanks


#2

I’ve never known them to be anything but TYG02 for the US market. There is a slim chance they could be MXLRG03 as some Victor/JVC 8x DVD-R uses that media code, but for the Japanese market.


#3

And where can you actually find these for sale in the United States? The JVCs here seem to all be made in Malaysia.


#4

They’re sold in 5-packs in jewel cases in a box. I’ve seen them at Fry’s Electronics mainly.


#5

I am getting 155 of them in Jewel cases, they say MIJ so I hope they end up being pretty good because I am almost out of TYG02’s

Anyone have any scans of these? I have not seen anyone post any that I can remember.

Indeed someone does :slight_smile: . Here’s one I posted two years ago: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=832595&postcount=220

Here you go :slight_smile:

I guess they have been out of circulation for a while.

Thanks for the links.

I will post scans later next week when I get them, lets hope i didn’t waste $.33 each on them, though I can’t get lucky on all the media I find…

In my opinion and experience, TY is pretty much TY no matter what brand it’s sold under. Here’s another example of JVC/Victor TYG02 quality: http://www.geocities.jp/himaoyaji_dvd/dvdtest/vicsd8.html

There are some complaints about Datasafe TYG02 (genuine), but Datasafe was never a reputable brand anyway.

Last night, at Fry’s, I saw MIJ JVC media, they were $10 per 5-pack (in jewel cases) IIRC

It just sounds like the Datasafe TYG02 discs are the UK equivalent of the Value-line TYG02 sold in the US.
