My purpose in showing the disc quality scans over the months is to demonstrate that taiyo yuden DVDs, Supposedly the best brand, do degrade over time. Knowing degradation will occur will prevent consumers from having Over-confidence, and hence they will not check their dvd media from time to time.
To be fair, taiyo yudens don't degrade as fast as some of the other brands I have. I have Imation dvds that Failed in only 2-3 weeks! So far the taiyo yudens can hold out for almost one year in high humidity. But I can'T say so for 2-3-4 years because the age of my taiyo yudens haven't reached that stage yet. If you care to take good care of your discs, they should survive longer.
