How is the write quality of these discs compared to the 50GB Sony media?


#2

Just because the DVDs glow blue doesn’t mean they are blue ray. LOL

The Japanese made Blu ray disks have a very good rep around the net, but I haven’t tried them personally. Too expensive compared to the Verbatims.

They are currently one of very few BD-R’s that are on my “safe buy” list. They are made in Taiwan. Burn quality I’ve seen from the 2 spindles I’ve purchased places them a close 3rd behind Falcon 4X-6X and Verbatim 6X. I have noticed the price of the 25 spindle inkjets has recently fallen from $3.00 to $2.50 per disc on E-bay. If interested in trying them, I think its very unlikely you would be wasting your money. If print quality is a factor, be aware that they are unfortunately not wide-sputtered, and clear behind the hub print surface. The aforementioned Falcon 4x-6x and Verbatim 6x are WS, and better choices for print quality for me.

^Nikoneko ya is still showing Sony 6x 25gb BD-R disks made in Japan. I wasn’t aware that Sony was also using Taiwanese suppliers for these 6x disks.

Sony BD-R25 6x Made in Japan and Made in Taiwan have both the same SONY-Mediacode.
There is scarcely a difference in quality, maybe the japanese are a bit better.
Both can be burnt with 8x in very good quality in Pioneer BDR205 and LiteOn iHBS112, faster than 8x they are still decent.

Right you are. The 5-10-20 jewel case packs are still listed as MIJ. His Sony spindles are MIT. Never buy my media in jewel case packs and missed that. I certainly should have said “The spindles I purchased were made in Taiwan”. Sorry :o.

Just ran across a US seller selling the Sony 6X IJP 50 spindles priced at $1.42 ea. Nice to see the good stuff coming down in price.

I’ve also seen good results with overspeed burning with the 6X Sony’s.
