The following is news to me...
I was at Costco today in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada and was wading through spindles and more spindles spindles of 15pc 4X TDK DVD+R Made in Taiwan.
But what's this? There's another pile of DVD+R spindles behind these ones! MADE IN JAPAN!! I scooped up four of these spindles and guess what?

There you have it. 15 pc RICOHJPN spindles for CDN$33 at Costco. Just make sure you look carefully because most of them say "Made in Taiwan."
Since they're not made in Taiwan, does that mean that these are actually made by Ricoh and not RiTEK?
