I’m talking about jewel-cased TDK 8x DVD+R in Europe, they have no COO on the packaging. They are very attractive for poor CD Freaks like me, as the prices for the 8x TDKs have started to drop significantly, as shops consider it outdated. It just recently became out of stock at some shops.
There are several flavors (two long bars hold the front card, two short bars hold the front card, two dots hold the front card, thread for opening, no thread for opening…) of this TDK media on the market.
I’ve bought some of these for testing, and I found TDK Luxembourg-made TDK002 and Moser Baer MBIPG101 R04 among others. But I haven’t run into any TYG02 or YUDEN000 T02 yet, as Francksoy did.
Does anybody know a fool-proof way to tell TY from MBI, TDK MIL, CMC…?
Even if it’s not possible or very difficult to do that, it’s not a big deal anyway.
The 8x TDKs are so ridiculously cheap that, even if the “worst case” happens, it’s not too bad (there is no really worst case, TDK was still good in those days, and even their 8x MBI and CMC are at least good quality).
Thanks in advance!
