Taiyo Yuden - which are the best?

#1

I’ve been using Silver/Light Blue TY cd-r media (unbranded) for quite some time (ordered from meritline). Its the model shown here: http://store1.yimg.com/I/ioprod_1807_265900

My question is this: Are there other kinds of TY apart from this model of Silver/Light Blue? Is there something like a Golden TY?

Are these unbranded Silver/Light Blue TY considered the best TY medias?

Thanks

TY only makes one type of CDR. The only differences are the back coating, or lack of it.


#3

What is back coating? the upper layer that different companies like Fuji print on the media with their name?

so this means the Silver/Light Blue i’m using are the best?


#4

The dye is called Cyanine, the color’s more like golden/greenish ( to me ).
As for the quality of different brands by TY, pls goto [COLOR=RoyalBlue]TY - Taiyo Yuden

im using a Teac CD-W552D burner, does it support reporting c1 errors? when im running ‘cd quality check’ on nero cd/dvd speed 3.40 the c1 option is automatically greyed out upon starting the check and only c2 is left checked.

any idea?

dunno, i had a CD-W552E i think (time ago)… it could read C1 errors… maybe the w552e is an upgraded revision of the ~2D…
