If they don't say, Made in Japan, you probably shouldn't bother. If I buy some today, I'll post the media code.

In Staples WEB site there is no indication of these disks (Fuji) being on sale, could you tell us where did you get this Staples AD or where the sale is going on (on the store or their WEB site or both)?.

I read it was both in store and on the website. For some unknown reason you have to add a $2 coupon to your order, when online. http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=130626&cmArea=SEARCH

It is advisable to do it in-store, that way you can make sure you get all made in Japan media.

These are by no means are Fuji but Fujifilm which is completely is different animal. I don't trust these Fujifilm never had experience with and I don't believe they are made in Japan, may at best in Taiwan of other places.


Edit; With apology to every one I did not mean to say Fuji and Fujifilm are different or Fuji is better than Fuji Film, What I meant is Fuji or Fuji Film Made in Japan is superior quality with respect to same brand made in Taiwan or other places.

Wow... that's interesting looking packaging. I've never seen anything like that before.

It looks overly complicated and expensive to make! :o

Went to Staples, found a ton of MIJ's 30pks. Here's my first scan. Actually they seems to outperform the BB Fuji MIJ 100pk's. Other than 2 random high PIF's this would have been a great burn with a score of 99 instead of 96.
