is the TY with silver coating (shiny or thermal) the best TY, better than other TY ? that's how i understood your words.
Oh, sorry, I misunderstood the question.
The silver thermal / shiny silver disc is just the cheapest version. White thermal is more expensive, and the white and/or silver inkjet printables are also more expensive, and not so great for labeling (without a printer that prints directly on them).
Taiyo Yuden Premium line discs should all be roughly the same quality. Only the Value Line products are lower grade.
