(52x) Taiyo Yuden in the Netherlands?

Postby XIII on Sun Aug 24, 2003 3:26 pm

Hi,

Does anybody know which company sells (52x) Taiyo Yuden discs in the Netherlands (if any)?
We do have Fuji's over here, but those seem to be the German discs that Fuji creates itself.
I would really like to buy some good CD-R's after some bad experiences with some A-brands...

Thank you for your time,
XIII

WHy don't you try the CDFreaks shop? They are based in the Netherlands, so they ought to be ok.
http://shop.cdfreaks.com
On searching for TY, they come up with " Hieronder vind u alle producten die op dit moment in het assortiment zitten met als zoekterm: 'Taiyo Yuden'.
", which I assume means TY is out of stock?

There are no 52x TY, only 48x, as far as I know. Last time I checked, CDFreaks had them.

The CDFreaks Shop doesn't carry TY's anymore. But this place in Holland usually has them: http://www.cdrwinkel.com/. They seem to be out of the unlabeled TY's I still have laying around, but they seem to have some under the name of Sentinel. Never tried those though.

There is 52x TY.

Unless you can post an ATIP from it showing otherwise, it's just 48x media with a new label.

I agree, also there are lot's of stores that will just SAY it is 52x since it is capable of being burned that fast, even though it is CERTIFIED 48x.
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

The fastest certified discs for sale on the That's CD-R (Taiyo Yuden's retail brand) website are 48x:

Of course, burning 48x TY at 52x is usually not a problem.
