I just went back and looked at the poll and was a bit surprised...
Does this really tell us anything other than a lot of people like TY. It seems that when you buy the other brands, at least a lot of them, it is a mixed bag. You don't know what you are getting and might get some junk disks or some good disks.
Doesn't the dye and manufacturer matter more than the brand on the disk? You mention DAXON and CMC but they aren't in the list so that doesn't help a guy walking in a store that doesn't know what you guys know.
Thanks for mentioning the K-Mart deal on the slower Sony DVD-R media... Unfortunately my closest K-Mart closed years ago. I have to drive past the Best Buy/Target/Office Max/Wal-Mart and then drive twice the distance to get to a K-Mart. If I am going to have to drive an extra 20 Miles to get to a K-Mart, it almost make sense to pay full price for an equal media at the closer stores. I know you used to be able to tell TY media by the slope/taper at the bottom of the cakebox. Is that still true?
I mentioned earlier that for diversity sake, I like to use TY for one burn and another brand for another burn. Spreading the risk so to speak. I already ordered some TY disks mail order as I am not as short of them as I am on the others.
The TDK being on sale at Office Max would be my best choice it seems if I knew what I was getting. clsA who replied first to this threat gave me some good information, but it seems I won't know what I am getting until I have it at home. opened, and stuck with what I get, and it seems it is a crap shoot what I might get?
