Samsung 48X CD-R's = TY?

Anybody tried these?

The inner ring of the disc appears to be shaded, which is reminiscent of TY.

In the first pic here, the middle ring looks clear. But in the second pic, it looks frosted kinda like TY disc. I think its a 50/50 chance what you get but I'm leaning on either CMC, Ritek, or ProDisc.

I wish these were sold in a retail store so I could look for "Made in Japan" or not. Anybody seen these in B&M stores?

In the past it has had quite a bad reputation.

On the other hand, at least one person has indicated that Plasmon doesn't make discs themselves, and have been the victims of people stealing their ATIP and making inferior media. So some of the bad experiences people have reported may be due to unauthorized usage of ATIP codes by unscrupulous vendors:
