Prodisc has never reallly been a *high* quality disc, but they are supposed to be a reliable disc... well, not their CD-RWs...their CD-RWs REALLY SUCK!
as for Fuji switching to a taiwanese manufacturer, it is very odd that they should do this now, since currently Japanese made CD-Rs are almost always cheaper then Taiwanese CD-Rs as of these last few months. Yes, I know that doesn't really sound like it makes sense, but for some reason Taiwan manufacturers have been one step ahead of Japan manufacturers on the price increase, which has ultimatly resulted in Japan offering the cheapest available media... a little weird eh? You can bet it won't last though
