[QUOTE=DrageMester;2242437]The Crystal discs from Verbatim have a tougher top layer than most other CDs including Taiyo Yuden.
Other than that, the Taiyo Yuden CD-R media is in most cases better than the currently available Verbatim Azo / Super Azo CD-R media (and better than any other available CD-R media).
I consider the Verbatim (Super) Azo to be second best with TY being the best. Production variations within a certain type of media can certainly change which particular batch of CD-R media is better, however.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for the response. The reason I ask is because I understand that TY has gone bad (packing their CDs in China, may defective discs). I really don’t want to take a chance on TY. So I need a GOOD alternative.
