Circuit City flyer today (2/13) shows 25 pks of TDK +R or -R for 8 bucks... this beats the per disc price of BB's Fuji 50 packs ($16 per 50 for TDK's vs. $20 per 50 for Fuji's).
TDK's reliable? Any distinctive markings on the TDK's to identify good vs. bad, such as "MIJ" or batch numbers?
This TDK +R 25pack is RICOHJPNR02, good quality, not excellent just good.
I know the TDK 50pack -R (MIT) is TTG02, good stuff. Don't know the 25pack ones.
Thought these might be TY's, but your photo is exactly what the ad flyer shows. Guess I'll stop by BB and pick up some Fuji's if they have MIJ's.
i've bought a 25pk of 8X rated TDK +Rs and they were CMC Mag E01. actually burned great at 8X for me but couldn't overspeed them at all.
Yes, TDKs are usually CMC or Ricoh if made in Taiwan. Those made in Japan are probably Yudens (very rare in the US).
MIJ TDK 8x +R isn't so rare.
i've only seen them in 100pks and never on sale (price is usually around $79.99).
Yup @ Best Buy.
I've seen them in 50 packs at my local BB, in various different cakebox shapes.
Check to see if your local store has them in stock by choosing in-store pickup:
TDK 4.7GB/120-Minute DVD-Rs (15-Pack) $2.99
TDK 4.7GB/120-Minute DVD-Rs (25-Pack) $7.95
TDK 4.7GB/120-Minute DVD+Rs (25-Pack) $7.95
I wonder if I could get best buy to match the price on a 50 pack (I mean 16$ for a 50 pack). They have two diffrent made in japan spindles (if they are still their, I hid them in the back of the rest incase they went on sale this week somewhere so I could get a price match). I'm really curious what they are? That 2.99 15 pack looks tempting too (I know that they are 2x but they are half the price).
All TDK MIJ 8x DVD+R have been YUDEN000T02 thus far regardless of cakebox style. Grab em!!
i much prefer TDK tops to FUJI tops too.
Yeah, I always grab TDK TY media when on sale, since they have less and smaller markings on them. Fuji just goes to crazy on there discs.
I think I will buy some to play with. Shit only $2.99 for 15 that's less than 20 cents a disc. Hopefully they can atleast burn at 8x.
Any ID code on the $2.99 TDKs?
Could be several diffrent media codes acording to videohelpMCC 00RG200MXL RG01....RITEKG04....TDKG010000d9TDKG02000000The last one seems to be the most common.As far as getting ty media (specifically yuden000t02), I think I'm done buying it for now. I had to fight with the right firmware to burn ty last time on my liteon but finally found one that worked good. My nec3500 was doing alright too. I got two 50 packs of tdk ty yesterday and am sometimes getting stuff like this (on both drives so far but I have only done a few burns). Ok, that was weird, the kprobe scan was to big to upload but I resized it. I know that is not the worst scan in the world but why the spike at the begining. I tried one from an old pack and it burned fine so the disks have got to be diffrent.Have any of you that have been buying a lot of yuden000t02 noticed much variation from pack to pack? I'm thinking I'm going to return the other pack.
I would definitely return those DVDs.
