Some of us were questioning about “bad” Yuden T02 quality in this thread that was started in the end of September 2004. I too have some “old batches” of Fuji Yuden T02 50pack from bestbuy and unbranded ones from rima.com (50 pack). All bought around August-September 2004.
However, from my new “batch” (December 2004) Fuji Yuden T02 in 25pack from bestbuy and TDK Yuden T02 in 50pack (also from bestbuy), I found that the quality is MUCH BETTER, no more 2GB syndrome or 100 PIE spikes at the end. Anyone also notice this?
