I've recently depleted my stock of YUDENT02 and am looking for two types of media. One for general purposes (TV shows, system backups) and another for backing up family photos and documents.
Previously, I managed to buy some Phillips branded CMC from Futureshop for $15-20/100 and they worked well while using the T02 for the more valuable data.
I recently acquired some MCC004 at $25/100 and I was somewhat satisfied with the results.
I also bought some Taiyo Yuden locally at $25/100 for the value line and $40/100 for the premium line but was quite disappointed.
As for the premium line
I also found some MCC003 at a local shop at $25/100 and I was really impressed with the scans I was getting.
But alas, they don't have much stock left.
I am tempted to buy some more T02s but they cost close to $45/100. At the same time, I noticed that with falling hard drive prices, I can keep the stuff that I don't care that much about on spinning platters at around the same price as $40/100 DVDs.
Can anyone offer some more media suggestions or advice as to what I should go with?
