Today I found a store near me selling spindles of 30 and 50 Fujifilm CD-Rs (the ones that come in 5 or 6 alternating colours) that are marked MIJ… and I’m assuming these are TY (correct me if I’m wrong). I was just wondering how these compare to the Maxell CD-Rpro, which I know are also TY.
Are they basically identical? The packaging for the Maxell CDs boast a triple-coated scratch protecting layer, or something like that… is that a feature of the Maxell-specific TYs, or is it common to all TY, just not mentioned on the Fuji packaging.
I’m hoping they’re both equally good so I can just buy the Fuji, which are considerably cheaper (16.99 CDN for the spindle of 50 compared to 19.95 CDN for a 25-spindle). The only mildy irritating thing is the annoying design on the label side of the Fuji discs… but I think I can live with that for simple backups of my CDs.
