What are you talking about? SuperMediaStore is extremely reliable, and they're leading the fight against faked TY discs.

Fujifilm is almost NEVER Taiyo Yuden or made in Japan anymore. So no, you do *NOT* know what you're getting!! :o

There is still a lot of MIJ Fuji spindles out there at Best Buy. Just look at the label when you're in the store. Country of origin is required by law here.

You are jumping to conclusion my friend, where did I say that your favorite store (SuperMedia Store) is having or selling fake fuji the only I said that this price for ths media is not big of deal , BB has the same price when you can pick and see for yourself.

You have previously made this baseless claim that MIJ on the label is fake I suggest to you read the US trade law to find out.

"Atleast in BB you know what you getting." implies that the TYs are fakes.

Besides, BB charges tax and is thus more expensive. :D

You seem to be incapable of understanding my posts.... continuously.

I'm saying that Fuji does not buy media from Taiyo Yuden anymore, and has not for quite some time. There may be a few spindles here and there, but this is not a given thing. So when you say at least you know what you are getting, you are NOT giving an accurate description. I'm not saying that when a spindle says MADE IN JAPAN it is NOT made in Japan (that's only the case with Maxell products :roll: ), but that many many MANY spindles of Fuji products are in fact made in Taiwan, and LABELLED made in taiwan, because they're manufactured by Prodisc.

Now, when you make off handed comments like "at least you know what you are getting" in reference to buying Fuji from Bestbuy (*YOUR* favourite store....), then it makes it sound like you don't know what you're getting from Supermediastore, which is VERY MUCH not the case!! And it hurts the reputation of a store which is reliable and one of very few safe places to purchase Taiyo Yuden online. This is not something which I can agree with, and I highly recommend you watch the way you word your posts for this sort of stuff.

I'm sorry that I'm coming across so strongly, but this is not the first time you've done this, and I don't want to have to keep correcting you, so that unknowing users won't be given incorrect ideas.

From what I've heard, Fuji Canada hasn't shipped MIJ discs in some time. Even here in the US, its becoming harder and harder to find this old stock. If you don't feel like running from store to store, looking for MIJ Fuji's, ordering from Supermediastore is a good option. Especially since you're getting discs rated at 16x and not 8x.

Now stop your bickering or I'll have to get out the mod stick and smack some asses.

What this sentence means I thought we all are communicating in "ENLISH" isn't that means you pick the pack that you look at it, then you read it to find out whether is been made TAIWAN or JAPAN as says in the outside of pack, then you decide to buy that or not. What is wrong with this approach?.
