#1

In my local Costco, there are two different kind packages, the old one is MIT, the new one is MIM.


#2

Need a Forum Glossary…
MIT I understand, "Made In Taiwan"
Ditto for MIS, MIJ, MIC (Singapore Japan China respectively)

So clue me “MIM”?

Mexico, Manyamar(SP?), Mongolia, Mauritania… Mars?


#3

Malaysia.

I just got the yellow-label MIT -Rs ($29.49-$7.50 instant rebate=$[B]21.99[/B]), but they’re [B]BRANDED[/B] INTO THE PRINTABLE SURFACE!!! :a

I’m seriously contemplating returning them for refund…

Which one is better MIT one or MIM?

[QUOTE=fairplay;2187999]Which one is better MIT one or MIM?[/QUOTE]

MIT Sony DVDs seem to be slightly better than MIM.


#8

MIT has lower PIE/PIF number, but MIM has smooth JITTER.

And the +R is way better than -R.
