I bought these with free shipping on Friday. I thought they would probably be Ritek F1 but got TYG03s instead. Anyone else?

Did the packaging say “Made in Japan”? What are the hub codes?

Made in Japan and the outer code is GH000197. There’s another code on the clear plastic near the hole but I can’t make it out yet.

GH000197 = genuine TYG03.

Yes, they are genuine TY, but I wonder if they are Value Line or Premium Grade? These days, TY quality has gone down a bit, so it isn’t the same as the rebranded Sony, Plextor, and Panasonic TY of yesteryear.

We’ll have to wait for some burns and a closer physical inspection to know more.
