Besides Supermediastore.com’s “Genuine Taiyo Yuden”, the YUDEN000T02 media (8x +R) can be found in a number of name brands, such as Fujifilm, Sony etc. I did several scans each for the 3 brands above, and have found Supermediastore’s discs consistently worse than Fujifilm or Sony by a significant margin (PIF in 200-500 range vs 1000+). I have NEC3520AW 1.UG burner, sampling at 8x.
Has anybody else experienced this? Seems to me the Supermediastore’s “genuine” YUDEN000T02 discs (shiny silver surface) are not as good as the other brands. How can this be? Is Supermediastore hiding some truth here?
