Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD-R?!?!?!

I was poking around Yahoo Japan Auctions and found something quite unexpected: http://page7.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g30100097

TY must have done some ninjutsu getting these discs out, because I haven’t heard anything about any 16x media getting released. I would assume the media code is TYG03. Koba, or one of our other CD Freaks in Japan, care to try them out for us? :wink:

nice find Two Degrees…

comin’ up on 1k posts there man :smiley:

Heh, I wouildn’t have noticed that if you hadn’t pointed it out. Start lab has a PDF press release showing all the 16x DVD-R packages available: http://startlab.co.jp/16x�V���i����.pdf

A 50 disc spindle, wow. TY must be doing some serious 16x production.

maybe i should start trying some -R media…have used +R exclusively till now.

160 Yen per disk. A little more expensive than MCC004 and YUDEN000T02. OEM TY 16x DVD media must cost less than MCC004 though.
