I’ve just ran out of both CD’s and DVD’s, which makes it time for buying some new ones!
I was just wondering whether there is any worth for me going premium style and pay a premium price for Taiyo Yuden disc’s compared to Verbatim disc’s which I get really cheap at work?
I know that Taiyo Yuden was known for being THE BEST a few years back, and I guess they still are? But have the development of disc’s come to a point where there is barley any noticeable differences between the different brands anymore? Combined with the latest DVD-writers, is there really a point paying a premium for Taiyo Yuden these days?
Here in Norway I can get:
Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 8x Dual Layer Print HUB 10pk for about 57$ compared to Verbatim 8x DVD+R Double Layer 8,5GBÂ Wide Printable 25-pack Cake Box for about 33$.
Taiyo Yuden PRO DVD+R 16x Print Hvit FULLFACE 100pk for about 64$ compared to Verbatim 16x DVD+R disc 4,7GB WideÂ Print (Advanced AZO) 50-pack Cake Box for about 13$.
Taiyo Yuden PRO DVD-R 16x Print SÃ¸lv HUB 100pk for about 64$ compared to Verbatim 16x DVD-R disc 4,7GB WideÂ Print (Advanced AZO) 50-pack Cake Box for about 13$.
Taiyo Yuden CD-R 700 MB Printbar/FULL White 100pk for about 50$ compared to Verbatim 52x CD-R 80min 700MB Print, (SuperAZO) 50-pack Cake Box for about 10$.
In other words, Taiyo Yuden is quite a bit more expensive… So would it be worth it? Is there perhaps some other brand to consider?
