Is the Plextor/TY 48x 700Mb CDR as good as the Fuji/TY 48x 700Mb? Anyone can post the test result? :)

Nothing is as good as Fuji/TY: :wink:

(see also http://www.cdrlabs.com/phpBB/viewtopic. ... 9889#49889 )

I suspect that since both are made by TY they are both of equivalent quality. TY doesn't seem to have the wildly varying quality grades like CMC.

So can you send the pics that you can't upload. My email is jvms@eudoramail.com


cfitz - I learned that you also using some Mitsui CDR. The Mitsui Gold that I got here are all made in Taiwan. Do you think the quality is similar? If not because of the price, you will choose TY or Mitsui Gold.

I honestly don't know for sure, since my experience with Mitsui is limited to one batch of Mitsui Silver. I bought them for testing purposes to see if they were worth the extra money. As shown in the other thread I referenced, I haven't been getting completely satisfactory initial burn quality on my test batch. The quality is in the very-good to reasonably-good range up to about 60 minutes, and then errors start showing up. And the tests aren't completely consistent, either.

Based on what I have seen in initial burn quality, at this point I would choose TY over Mitsui. But, as I have noted, initial burn quality doesn't tell the whole story. Over time the Mitsui's might hold up much better. That is why I intend to put my photos on two or three brand/types of discs each. It is extra insurance against the unexpected.

So many variables, so many unanswered questions... sorry I can't give a simple, straightforward, definitive answer. :(
