Sorry if this has been discussed before (tried searching some...).
for the first time, i'm considering buying a spindle of CDs (rather than 10-packs of jewel cases).
most of the spindles i can find here in stores are no-name brands, brands that aren't mentioned in these forums: GPT, SilverLine, Sky, Office Depot, and a few more i can't recall now. and many of the brands that are discussed aren't sold here in Israel.
i have been reading all posts about media etc., but it's bewildering will all of these brands etc.
what's more, the packaging here does not usually say where the media was manufactured (and in the rare case it does, it's Taiwan, never Japan).
anyway, the branded media that i do find in spindles are:
Memorex, LG, Samsung, BenQ, Phillips, maybe Maxell
i would like to know which of these are good?
i'd rather not buy CMC. i'm hoping for Ritek. any other suggestions?
am i correct that all newer Memorex (non "made in Japan") are CMC?
BenQ are made by Acer? how good are they?
LG is CMC?
i have one Samsung 32x. it's Prodisc. any good?
and one Samsung 16x it's Ritek.
how about Hitachi-Maxell?
are all Maxell branded CDs Hitachi-Maxell or only some? what are others?
thanks in advance.
