Im kinda new in the media disc. I did a search and some says its TY or ricoh or other stuff. I was wondering who made this disc?

and which one is better? Coz theres gonna be a sale, it used to be cdn$54 for the 25pc. spindle, its gonna be cdn$19, which is a good price.

anyone??

The DVD-R spindle is mostly MXLRG02’s (made by Maxell in Japan). There is a chance that it’s TY (also made in Japan). Currently, there have been sightings of Maxell DVD-R spindles that are made in Taiwan and are Ritek G04’s. Getting G04’s at a MXL/TY price is NOT a good deal, IMHO.

The DVD+R spindles have always been RicohJPNR01’s (Taiwan)…but that may be subject to change as well.

the maxell dvd+r are ricohjpnr01’s. i bought some the other day. they are excellent discs.
i burnt some with my ldw811s and my gs4120b (kprobe pi under 25 and pif’s at 2 max) at 4x. not sure on the -r though

if it is made in taiwan then its not a good deal, right

Could not open any of those links so gave up.

Take a look at www.blankshop.com - they have tubs of 25 Maxell dvdr’s that are TY, I have bought and burnt many of them. This is for ref re. Maxell +R and being TY (UK)
