Since I still have some unopened TY's from Sony and Fuji, I haven't had the pleasure of ordering from Rima or Supermediastore yet.
The beauty of the Sony and Fuji TY's was the solid feel they had and the smooth plastic top. Do the Rima TY's have that solid feel, or was it just specially manufactured for Sony and Fuji?
I've noticed that since I've been using the new Verbatim's, I've developed a hard to heal skin allergy on my hands. Soon after touching the disks, my hands start to itch and eventually become scaley. I have to wear a cellophane glove when handling them (after applying ointment)!
I'm thinking that it's a reaction to the plastic coating. Sony and Staples' CMC brand are using a similar cloudy plastic coating, where the old Staples 8x +R disks had a clear, mirror like top of the disk.
