Good lord, it’s people like you, dakhaas, who are responsible for the proliferation of cheaply made crap out there! People like you look at price alone, and don’t give a crap about quality. Unfortunately, the rest of society has to suffer because it gets harder and harder to find well-made products out there. You get what you pay for. Yes, it is being developed and produced in Japan, which means we get HIGH QUALITY discs. I am THANKFUL for that. I’d much rather pay a bit more for QUALITY media, then save a small amount of money, and have coasters and problems with the discs!
