Taiyo Yuden CD-R Price Increase

Postby dolphinius_rex on Tue Nov 07, 2006 3:50 pm

Just got the word that Taiyo Yuden has officially raised their pricing by $0.01 USD on their silver laquer product only. However don't be surprised if inkjet printable media also go up in price by $0.01 USD in the not too distant future.

I'm hoping that Taiyo Yuden will be using this added revenue to prevent things like this from happening:

Ok, after getting clarification, this price increase probably won't affect anyone. It only affects smaller resellers.
