I have found no evidence of dual serials, and I did spend quite some time "peering at them" with a mag. glass about a year ago when discussing this on another site, however I have not done so more recently due to the lack of problems. They're very good folk at blankmedia.ca, my favorite TY supplier! (Got a heck of a deal on some Ricohjpn +R's from them also, just before Christmas)
Yup, all of Blankmedia.ca's 4x Taiyo Yuden's are Value Line discs. You can tell from the SKU they give it, which matches Taiyo Yuden's Value Line SKU.
And as for Dual Serials, you really need to know what you're looking for in order to see them. Most people wouldn't notice them unless they were looking at them, and had a premium line disc side by side for comparison.
And again, the problems I specifically said would be likely, were with TYG03 discs on the LiteON 851s burner. You'll notice that Blankmedia.ca took my advice and amended their webpage in the last week, to mention the compatability issue:
The spindle you receive may be Ty G03 media coded depending on the batch lot. There are alot of 4x burners that are not compatible with this disk.
And yeah, they're not a bad supplier of TY product. I have issues with their other sourcing habits though. They have a tendancy of grey marketing a lot of product in from asia, which is not meant for sale in North America. Sometimes this product is one or more grades below the stuff normally sold in Canada, but their customers couldn't possibly know that... they just see a cheaper price!
