The site's down at the moment...

Usually these sorts of things are very hard to do properly, and they're out of date in a matter of months at best.
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

I personally wouldn't put Taiyo Yuden in the premium spot. (much to high fall out rate because of bonding problems. ) :o (Probally a controversial opinion I know.)

Also the claime for verbatim is bullshit. Made In japan would mean TY in most cases and personaly I prefer the singapore and CMC stuff over TY these days.

Then the next becomes more funny.

How the hack did Thats Write,MAM-E and MAM-A and Emtec get up to recommended.
Incase of That's write and Emtec they probally sell quite bad performing optodisc media.
Also for some european folks it will be a mystery how optodisc can be named recommended but also for some american folks it seems a mystery when it comes to the ridata recommendation.

Ohh and in the case I would put TDK one level up.

Also funny is that Princo and sky and moviestyle are not put under landfill.
Moviestyle is made by infosmart which itselff is called landfill. hmm
Also primeon is funny qualified. All primeon's media is these days made by MAM-E which was recommended media. Hmm as you can see these lists allways contain errors.

Now if people really want to make such lists then they would have to keep a eye very good on the market and keep changing and improving.
I know this is really time consuming.
In all the other cases it's useless.

Any article discussing media quality without mentioning MID has already lost its credibility. These days almost all brands use different manufacturers and MIDs over time.

Spending some time at the Blank Media Fourm at cdfreaks will probably help more in the long run:

I disagree, I don't think the MID code means much at all on its' own. There is too much variations in grading of discs now. Brand name, and MID code, and sometimes even more inside information is required to truly make an informed decision... it's frustrating.

Gradeing and code abuse haves causes that the reliability of MID alone has become questionable !

Thanks a lot RJW for your comment on this article from CDRzone !
Does anybody know for sure if this site speaks for the UK blank media market ?

It puts in clear terms what I am thinking about such a classification based only on brand names ...
