to be a major competitor with Taiyo Yuden for quality, however recently when Mitsui was effectivly bought out by C.S.I. their quality dropped to a point of pure disgrace for the company. I wouldn't choose Mitsui over Prodisc anymore, let alone Ritek or Taiyo Yuden! Some of our customers (in the place I work, which happens to be B.C.'s official Mitsui Distributor) have reported as many as 1 out of every 20 Mitsui CD-Rs just not completing the burn process, or even getting past the first few minutes! This is saying nothing of the burn quality of the ones that *do* complete the burn process!
So I would *not* recommend purchasing Mitsui CD-Rs anymore, unless they are the Medical grade, or the True Gold Mitsui's which have not degraded nearly as much since he time of the takeover... although they too are not the quality they once were
