Yeah, the spotting is pretty easy to notice. Even my girl who doesn't know much about media was able to spot them. In fact, she was the one who pointed them out to me. When she told me, I was just like "oh shit, not again" (I once ordered a batch of Riteks from allmediaoutlet and the first disc in the batch had spotting and it was a disaster for playback). Anyways, I then checked my discs and sure enough, the spotting phenomenon went right on down through both of my spindles as well. BTW, it should be noted that mine were in fact TYG02 and not TY02. I know they are official TY discs since Fuji is well known for using TY to manufacture it's media. Anyways, these discs were brand new and sealed, with none of the signs that they were previously returned (TY Spindle, Sealed in Plastic, no notice or funky UPC stuck on top). I wasn't saying all Fuji TY's are bogus, I'm just saying it seriously makes me wonder about their handling, storage, ect. if I am getting 3 bad spindles of TY made media in a row. I will still purchase Fuji labeled TY CD-Rs but I won't be touching any Fuji DVD Media for a LONG time.
