Strange TDK CDrs in shrink-wraps.

Postby Harrier on Mon Jul 21, 2003 2:11 pm

The other day when i was visiting some hardware store i encountered upon some very strange TDK CDrs..

A Cake contained 100 Cdrs 700MB and no certified cds, as far as i can recall.

The cdrs had a writing which was written cursively saying: "Colour" and maybe some other words..

It came in two colors: Light greenish and light purple-pink.

The Spindles were wrapped rather lamentably: Just a piece of of polymerized nylon. It wasn't even hermetically sealed: It had a hole left open in the middle so dust and other pests could easily infiltrate to the inner parts of the "spindle".

I think it looks something like this:

It was wrapped even poorer.

Does Anyone know anything about these CDrs?
Are the fake?
Are the actually good quality?
Who manufactures them?

Any info would be helpful.

Thanks.

are you sure they were TDK?
i've seen packs like this, they were BenQ.
were did you see it by the way?

I saw them at some hardware store in Petah-Tikva.
I also caught glimpse of the alleged BENQ but these were definitely written "TDK".
