Made by FTI in the UAE.

Thanks, Albert. That would have been my first guess. However, the SmartBlu Premium 4x BD-Rs (both blank shiny and hub printable) indicate “Made in UAE”, while the Valueline ones do not. Also, the print surface is not quite as good as those of the Premium discs. That’s what prompted my question. Thanks again for the info.

I did [B][I]NOT[/I][/B] know Microboards had switched to FTI TDK media. I can get those from a local media shop.

Please let us know what you get if you purchase any. I purchased mine from MediaMegaMall a couple of years ago, so there’s no guarantee what they’re using now.
