About two months ago, I scored two 50-packs of Sony DVD+R media (1-8x) at Staples for a grand total of $30. I thought this was an extremely good deal except for the fact both spindles are made in Taiwan. My plan at the time was to go back to Staples and simply trade for the same items that were made in Japan. Remember, Sony has the “same” spindles out there, some are made in Taiwan (Sony D11 media) and some are made in Japan (Taiyo Yuden media). I figured sooner or later, the next shipment to Staples would have some spindles that were made in Japan.
Because of this problem, I have not even removed the plastic wrappers yet, the spindles are sitting on my shelf. The manager at my local Staples is more than willing to let me swap if some Japanese spindles show up. The problem is simple, Staples and every other store in town keeps receiving the Taiwan discs. I keep looking and looking without any success.
I need your HONEST opinion. Should I hold out longer and wait for some TY’s to arrive, or just start burning the Sony D11’s?
