Sorry i should have given all the info. Yes i am referring to DVD's only. Cd's are no biggie , can get TY's everywhere and sometimes quite cheap as well.
In fact while we are talking about TY cd's i found a FULL FACE printable CD made by TY. Closer inspection reveals the disc is made by TY but the printable coating applied by another compnay, althought no sure which company applied that coating. Have noidea how this would affect the quality, will have to try them i guess.
But back to DVD's
I was reading some threads late last night (early mornng actually) on Doom9's forum. I followed some threads that linked to a site that linked to a forum somewhere that had some interesting discussion on verbatim datalife DVD 4x in a jewel case being made by TY. These guys were based in the USA. I did't take that much notice of where they got them etc as the states are not much good to me here in U.K as i belive the cost for freight and worst of all handlng charges through heathrow are quite high. You would have to order a LOT of disks to make it worth the time involved to go through it all.
What i did get out of the thread however is that quite a few people are reporting Verbatim Data life 4x as TY's. This seems to be a USA thing only. Hence i was wondering about the situation in Europe and here in U.K.
I have not burnt any of the verbatim disc's i got yet , only just got them in but it will be interesting to see how they go .
As well i am trialling some real cheap ones. They are bulk pack orange 4X -R. They identify as Princo but i hear princo seem to be much better lately so it'll be interesting. As well i got some printable bulk pack . They identify as Prodis cS03. The next lot are Ridisc 4x -R witha video reel overprint. They identify as G04 as expected.
So all in all 4 different disks to try out. Will see how they go.
But the reason for this thread is to try to track down some TY's at a reasonable price.
I wonder if that will be possible in U.K ?
