I found 6 packs of Sony MIJ’s the next town over. 2 of them were 16x and were D21 instead of the Yuden T02 8x’s. Who is making the D21’s for them?


#2

Sony makes its own media for the D21 and D08


#3

D21 burns excellent for me. I refuse to give Sony any more money though.


#4

At what price?.


#5

7.99 is the price you may find some 8x but most will probably be 16x. These 16x I found were made in japan D21 and they burn better for me than thhe D21 i bought that were made in Tawain.


#6

There was a sighting of Sony 16X+ media MIJ that were Yuden000-T03-000. The spindle has a white octogon shaped spacer.


#7

Yeah I looked for some but did not find any a couple of weeks ago i bought two spindles of Sony 16x -R at Best Buy that were tayo yuden also had the octagon spacer.

How long the sale would last?, may be until this Sunday.

Paper says until the 20th. These D21’s have a paper thin round white paper over the speeds. Easy to find the Yuden’s, there the only ones with the teal colored speeds printed on the inner ring.

Sony D21: These are the MID codes of the Sony +1x-16x. This MID code is on both Japanese and Taiwanese spindles. Pretty Decent.They don’t scan as well as the Yuden000-T02 8x speed fuji and sony.

Yuden000-T03 are just now showing up in some of the Japanese spindles of sony +1x-16x. Hopefully fuji follows suit with using Yuden000-T03.

The white/hexagon spacer theory works very well with sony. I’m not sure about fuji. Fuji are a lot harder to come by for me in my area.


#11

Negative! I picked up a 15 pack of 16X MIJ with White octagon and they scan as D21 as well. Looks like another crap shoot to chase after.


#12

I’d expect nothing less from all these retailers. The ‘media’ world is very frustrating. Think I might stop the chasing and just start ordering TY media from online myself.


#13

It’s well worth it IMHO (to order the unbranded TY online) unless you are going with one of the Verbatim specials.
