Where to buy Taiyo Yuden?


I would like to buy genuine Taiyo Yuden DVD+R.

I am living in Belgium.
Do you know a reliable and inexpensive web shop to buy them ?

Thank you very much for the help.

There’s a CDFreaks Shop for Belgium where you can get Plextor branded Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD+R media. Since the CDFreaks shops are not available for Denmark, I have never used this shop.

My favourite on-line shop is SVP in England which will ship to European countries including Belgium. You can get Plextor branded Taiyo Yuden media, unbranded Taiyo Yuden media and there’s even some Verbatim branded Taiyo Yuden media.

There’s also Digital Promotions in the UK which I haven’t tried yet: Search for Taiyo Yuden manufactured media at Digitalpromo.

Thank you very much. :slight_smile:
I already buyed at CD Freaks shop; most of the time they are cheap, but this time the Plextor DVD+R media are overpriced !

SVP seems a good choice. -> low postal charge.

Any other shop I could check before placing my order ?

SVP are a brilliant place to buy from. I wouldn’t use any other. :slight_smile:

(No, I don’t work for them, hehe).

If you place an order for £300 or more (incl. VAT) shipping is free. :slight_smile:

There are also some special items you can buy in order to get £0.99 shipping, but as far as I can tell that is only valid for shipping within the UK?!?

Ditto here - brilliant company to deal with.

And another thumbs up for SVP from me… The only online shop i will ever use for my media!

sorry for off topic:
i understand that Plextor-branded TY is consedered very good (best?) but expensive.
is Verbatim-branded TY any better or not as good as unbranded stuff ?

The only Verb-branded TY I’ve used is Verb T02s…and I can honestly say, they were the best T02s I used. :slight_smile:

i generally like DVD+R.
but @ svp they only have 16x DVD-R Verbatim-branded TY.

any recommendations on these?
are they as good as/better than unbranded TYG03? i’m thinking of ordering some TY, just having a hard time deciding which and where… :frowning:

I have some of the Verbatim TYG03 from SVP but I haven’t burned any of them yet. The Plextor branded TYG03 are good, however. :slight_smile:

Unless you want printables or dislike golden coloured discs, I’d go for the Plextor branded Taiyo Yudens at SVP. The Plextor 16x DVD-R TYG03 are currently Out of Stock, however.

They also have DVD+R TY at SVP :

Verbatim : http://svp.co.uk/products-solo.php?pid=1523
TY printable 8x : http://svp.co.uk/products-solo.php?pid=171
TY printable 16x : http://svp.co.uk/products-solo.php?pid=719

thansk for the links.
yeah, i missed some, i didn’t check very extensively (yet).
i don’t care about the top, except that many posts i’ve read said that the unbranded TY are shiny silver that attract dust & fingerprints real bad. so i thought i’d go for the printables.
the Plextor are actually a bit cheaper.

the Verbatims are 200 pack only (or 25, no 50 or 100). any idea how heavy that is ?
svp won’t ship to Israel, i have a relative who lives in the UK and will be visiting in the not too-far future, but don’t want to burnden them with too much weight (the baby is trouble enough… :doh: )

I can’t imagine why you might prefer 50pc or 100pc cakeboxes/spindles over one or more 25pc cakeboxes, but that’s up to you I guess.

The 25px cakebox [3458] is approximately 0.5kg and the cardboard box [3458 BOX] containing 8 25pc cakeboxes would be 4-5kg.

you are right…

Discount shipping weekend at the moment aswell, 100 +r Plextors, 100 Pastel CDrs here i come.
