New JVC Taiyo Yuden Watershield Nomemclature

Hi All,

Just bought my first batch of Taiyo Yuden blank DVD media after the incorporation of JVC. I ordered watershield discs, and to my chagrin what I got was not the glossy watershield but a “textured” watershield. Looking at the cake box label it shows the part number as xxxxxxxxx-WS2. All the old watershield discs had part numbers of xxxxxxxx-WS. I then went on line to the store and noticed there are now two watershield part numbers, WS1 and WS2. I am wondering if WS1 is the glossy watershield and WS2 is a textured watershield. Any experience or thoughts with this?

Thanks!

Danny
