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.
