I just got some of these in a trade and if they're gonna go "bad" on me after a while i'd wanna be sure to copy them before that happens lol

I've never heard of them but that doesn't really mean much. Tayo Yuden's are generally regarded as the best.

this seems to be my morning of reiterating...

as Fera said...Taiyo Yuden--the only top-quality brand [well those and MAMA/Mitsui but way to expensive]...

***if you buy spindles of Fujis, etc...just look for "Made In Japan" on the label...this means they're good discs...if it says they're made in Taiwan, China, India, etc. i wouldn't trust em

Love that place. Ever since Toto posted about them that's where I get my DVDs.

after two years of doing business with them--never a missed order or late shipping--i thoroughly endorse supermediastore.com

plus, they actually give you the REAL info on a batch of discs, and not just the vague info

I checked that link, and all of the NexTech discs mentioned were manufactured by CMC Magnetics.

I believe CMC is the company that manufactures discs for Imation, so these discs in question are indeed rubbish.
