Different "types" of Mitsui media

Postby Raw Kuts on Mon Feb 17, 2003 9:28 pm

I have been looking around for good prices on Mitsui media, and have found prices ranging from 35 cents a disk to over a dollar per disk. It seems that the pritable ones add about 20 cents per disk, and I don't need that. But then there are these "gold/gold", "silver/silver", "Silver Diamond" or "Silver/Green". I am very confused as to the differences of these products. All of the places I have looked at have unbranded Mitsumi, but they don't all say what type of dye each disk uses (the "Silver Diamond" one says the dye is Phthalocyanine).

So if anyone can help me in sorting out the differences between these cdrs, I would be appreciative. If this sort of information is in some FAQ that I have missed, then please point me in that direction. Thanks.

EDIT: Here are the places that I am reffering to
1) has gold/gold and silver/silver for .99 and .59 a cd respectively

2) has the silver diamond coat with phthalocyanine dye for .53 a cd

3) has "silver/greenish silver" for .35 a cd

All Mitsui discs use pthalocyanine. As a matter of fact, Mitsui patented using pthalocyanine on CD's.
