Well I picked up some packs of Kodak media online from bestbuy.ca to see if they’ve improved at all from shipping the crap they were about a year ago. No such luck, and the usual mismatched packaging as well, what a joke this garbage is.
At least this time one of the packs was 8x media in 4x packaging (got 4x media in 8x packaging before) but the media was fake code TYG02 media, and the +R media was junky AML 001 discs. Luckily Best Buy shipped both of the packs smashed all to hell (in one pack the spindle was actually broken in half) and the other had the side smashed out and the top was cracked in half. Needless to say I will be returning them for a refund, as they can’t exchange them since they were a boxing day web-only blowout deal and they no longer even list the DVD-R product on their website now.
Avoid this junk–Kodak licensed “KMP Media” is complete crap and things have not changed since they came to market from the looks of things. I have emailed Kodak about these types of problems in the past and they didn’t seem to care much at all that KMP Media is ruining the good media reputation Kodak once had. Even Memorex is a far better choice for those who dislike Memorex. Memorex has improved a lot over the years and Kodak has gone straight down the tubes.
