Taiyo Yuden CDr discs in Western Australia

#1

I found a compu store in western australia that actually sells Taiyo Yuden CDR discs(thanks to a fellow aussie member on this review forum) and they are a reasonable price.

Best Buy Computers is the store in Cannington & Osborne Park they sell the cdr gold label brand for $11 a ten pack with jewel cases and printable white faced cdr $12 with jewel cases.

They are rated on the packets up to 32 speed. Best buys checked with the supplier and they can burn up to 52 speed. ( I have a email from best buys if you want see what they said about this just PM me for it).

I have used both types of TY media and they say they are the same disc only different face. They burn at 40 speed no probs on my lite on 40x12x48 and they are very good quality.

I had a hard time chasing TY media in WA as very few compu stores sell them. Most others sell immitation tdk etc which are all made in taiwan.

So I thought I would post this just to let you people know where to get these discs in WA.

:wink:

Paid a visit to Netway Computers, Southlands Boulevarde, Willetton today. They had 10packs of 1x-24x That’s CD-R 80min. discs for AU$15.

The best bet it still Best Buys Osbourne Park or Cannington.

Does anyone know if the MediaPlex shop on Short Street, Perth stocks Taiyo Yudens? They WERE my suppliers of Sony CDQ-74CNZ unbranded Taiyo Yuden…

@thatscdr
Do you know if TY’s are available in Adelaide? I figure if you know they’re sold in Perth, on the other side of Oz, then maybe you also know about here, at the half-way point. :smiley:

I’ve haven’t even seen Fuji’s here.:Z

Cheers, cobber.

Sorry this is bit late, been too lazy to reply.

Anyway called that number, guy was pretty suprised that i got there number :slight_smile: anyway they just a suplier and can’t supply to the public, if you call them they can tell you the closest place to get them. I’m north of the river so he told me to try traks2000 (can’t remember if thats right, its not the music shop). Anyway they are in Joondalup went there he said i had to order them in so i did, then next day though i would try this other shop nearby there called Netway and guys run it look all japanese and they had Taiyo Yuden 10 packs (gold ones) for $15 and Mitsiubishi also from japan for same price. The guy at Traks2000 never phoned me back so i gathered he never ordered them in, so im glad i didnt wait on him.

Bought the TY’s and they were great, bit expensive for me, best price ive found is at thediscshop.com.au you can get a 100 stack of the gold TY’s for $66 with 100 free sleves which are rated at 52x. Or buy them in the 50 spindals for $35.

Yeah you have to pay shipping but still works out the cheapest, just buy a couple of spindals at a time to make it more worth it.

Are cdrs sold under the brand name of “Gold Label” actually TY?

If so, I may know a place in Melbourne that stocks them (which would be good news as I’ve never seen TY cdrs for sale in Melbourne previously).


#17

probably not. what i mean is with the That’s Cdr there are the gold surface ones(non printable), and silver and and white surface ones (which are printable) the gold ones are bit cheaper and same quality.


#18

Ok, but what brand name are they sold under over in the West.

I can’t find any Japanese manufactured cdrs at all here in Melbourne.


#19

I have used hundreds of LiteON 48X blank Cd’s with very good results and at $20 Australian, for packs of 50 the price is good as well.
