JVC Taiyo Yuden CDs

Hi,
last year I purchased some spindles of JVC TY blank cd’s (CD-R80HSS25) and I’m very satisfied with them. I would like to buy them again now but they were discontinued by JVC/TY.

On the European site of JVC, there are a lot of blank cd’s: could you help me to choose the best product for my needs?

I want a spindle (not roll wrap) of 25, 50 or 100 disks.
I will not print anything on the disks’ top surface, I will label them with a pen.
I will use for data backup and archive.

Thank you

I still burn audio CDs. I use TY CDs and buy them through

Hi,

could you help me to choose the best TY CD-R for my needs (on the page you’ve linked there are many items)?

Remember:

  1. I want a spindle (not roll wrap) of 25, 50 or 100 disks.
  2. I will not print anything on the disks’ top surface, I will label them with a pen.
  3. I will use for data backup and archive.

I purchase this one

It is a 100 pack spindle. It is flat white finish. I hand label them with a pen. Again, I use them as audio CDs but they would be equally effective for data back up.

Just curious however - if you are going to use an optical disk for data backup, then why not a DVD+R where your capacity is much greater than a CD-R ?

Data to backup/archive are not so big… moreover in my opinion cd’s could be more durable than dvd’s

What do you think about Taiyo Yuden White WaterShield CD-R’s?

On a vendor’s website I read they have not the “stacking ring” (they have a “metallized inner ring” instead). What does it mean? Please notice that, after burning, I’m going to store them in their spindle…

In my experience over the last 3 years or so, the only JVC TY CDR that’s any good at all are the entry level shiny silver pro’s. ALL of the white printable surface ones give me mediocre burns, as do the ones with the JVC name on the label side.

I have no idea why.
