[QUOTE=After_Burn22;2644226]Are the Taiyo Yuden BD-R DL better then the Verbatim BD-R DL? I have been buying the DL Verbatim open discs on ebay for a while. I burn all discs on my Pioneer BDR-205 and I have never burnt a coaster with the ebay Verbatim, and I have burned maybe close to a few hundred. The only time I burnt coasters was when I purchased the open discs of Mitsubishi BD-R DL, my burner hated those discs or they where just bad discs. I am interested in the Taiyo Yunden DL discs because I can get them cheaper then the opened Verbatim and they will be sealed fresh in a cake box.[/QUOTE]
I can only say that the TY BD-R DL have been burning very good for me. And the results I am seeing from others around here look very encouraging. Like you, I have had mostly good but variable results with Mitsubishi/Verbatim BD-R DL.
Getting them in a sealed spindle at a price competitive with potentially mishandled and unknown quality grade repacked DLs is a big plus in my book, too.
There is a TDK factory in China that has been manufacturing BD-R DL for over 2 years now, info here, that may be the source for these. Still doing detective work trying to nail this down :). But those details are certainly not as important as good results, right?
The discs are listed at the Startlab/That’s website.
