LOL the USA is dominated by the Cult of CMC = Cheaply Made Crap. I still get a lot of Imation/TDK/Memorex/Khypermedia/Philips/AT&T/Verbatim/Generic CMC CD-Rs in trades even when I tell them I only want TY (Fuji) made, some people just dont give a damn.
Last Pine CD-R I got my hands on was a Postech 16x, came in a slim case.
Warning! Princo's die if you get them wet - I had a Princo CD-R that stopped working when I accidently sprayed CD Cleaner on its top side - I think the cleaner ate into the top layer. Gigastorage (Cursor) are really lousy CD-Rs too.
