When the MII 8X media first came out it was as good as TY. I remember I saw some Memorex , Imation with the MII on it and bought quite a bit. They all turned out good. At that time I did QC Scan on each and every disc I burned, not so now days. I just use good media Azo Verbs, Ty+ and Fuji (TY), Sony (TY) and the MIS DL Verbs. At that time everything was burned with BenQ 1620s or 1640s.
