Fujifilm(TY) 48x CD-R

Postby aznjosh on Mon Apr 07, 2003 9:41 pm

I bought a 100pk of these because there was a good deal on them and heard they were really good from other people. Whats so good about these cd-r's compared to other brands? The only thing i noticed was that it took 2:50 min using Nero to burn a 500 megabyte cd-r when it took me less then 2:50 for me to burn a full 700 megabyte cd-r using an Optimum cd-r.

Well, Fuji 48x discs have a lot less errors on them.

It really isn't. Sometimes the semi-long scales make discs look worse than they really are since you can see the low level errors magnified. In reality the Optimum in the bottom chart is really pretty good. But the Fuji/TY is better.

Both work primarily on LiteOn drives only.

TYs are my favorite also. The Fuji 48X Made in Japan TYs sold at Best Buy and other stores offer the best value per disc of TY made media that is available in retail stores in the U.S. For those who like to buy smaller quantities of CD-Rs than 20+ and prefer to buy CD-Rs with jewel cases, the Maxell CD-R Pro CD-Rs are a great deal. These CD-Rs are also TY made, and can be bought at Best Buy in a 10-pack for $8.99 in the U.S. This is a great deal for people who don't wish to buy everything online. Despite their 40X certification, they can be burned @48X with no C2 errors and a *max* of 7 C1 errors with an average of 0.103. I haven't tried them at 52X, but imagine they would perform very well @52X also. My point is that the Fuji 48X discs aren't the only TY discs that can be picked up in the U.S. on your way home from work. You have a choice: buy large quantities of Fuji 48X in spindles and get them much cheaper per disc, or buy the 10-pack of Maxell CD-R Pro discs with jewel cases. Don't buy the Maxell CD-R Pro discs in spindles--they cost more per disc than the Fuji, and thus are a waste of money if you are interested in buying large quantity CD-R spindles.

Get's my vote as well. Only stuff I use these days. Had problems with others... longevity, bad burns, coasters unbalanced discs (bad QA).

Fuji stops CDR production (or in Europe) ?

In contact with local subsdiary distributor (FujiFilm Hellas SA)
sales officer told me ,that last 3 months Fuji Germany have stopped European availability of CDR due production technical problems...since new 52x rated discs appeared !
In my question if that means now imported Fuji Japan(TY) discs for local market ,the answer was "That depends on main Fuji's policy,from headoffice in Germany ,but since now there is not official info, because Fuji CDRs are not now for regular production !)


What that means ?-Any other info of this lack ? -On line stores look the same lack generally ....
