There's nothing wrong with 52x Taiyo Yuden CD-Rs with Cyanine dye, or 52x Azo discs...well, okay there *ARE* problems with 52x Azo discs, but I think it's all related to the fact that CMC makes them all now
I'm almost done my Mitsui CD-R testing (just the regular silver 74min type) and the results are interesting... My LiteON drives don't seem to like them as much as my Pioneer and Plextor drives, but as long as I stay out of the fast and slow extreems they do ok... but that's the problem. Most of the results are in the 2.5 c1 average level, and most T.Y. media is in the <1.0 C1 error average area...
I think I'll buy some Mitsui DVD-Rs in the future so I can debunk them
