Hi, I am new here.
If you buy TY, it had best be TY. The interesting thing is that TY manufacturers for a number of brands. I've got Verbatim, Fuji, and Sony, manufactured by TY. Believe it or not, Verbatim even sold some CMC manufactured DVDs. The house manufacturer for Verbatim is MCC. They regularly rate on the forums as good or better than TY. I never can tell the difference. LOL So, brand loyalty can be a bit of a problem sometimes. My Sony +R manufactured by Sony in Taiwan does as well as the TY manufactured Sony. Ricoh is another good media I've used in the past. Some of my friends swear by Ritek. I've not used that one in a long time. They also manufactured a lot of media for different brands, including Memorex. If Memorex had stuck with Ricoh and Ritek, they would have better media. Just my 2 cents. ;)
