Is NexTech bad media?

You can check what people have reported about media here:

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

Re: Is NexTech bad media?

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.

Re: Is NexTech bad media?

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.
