Taiyo Yuden has some new media coming out soon! It's called Watershield. It's an inkjet printable disc, that has a glossy shine to it, which is also water resistant.
I've had the oppurtunity to test some of these discs out recently, and I can tell you this. These discs look *MUCH* better then regular Taiyo Yuden inkjet printable media! And they have a very nice glossy look, and are water resistant. They dry VERY quickly!
As for pricing, I wouldn't be surprised if they ranged from $0.72-$0.82 USD per disc (for CD-Rs). I couldn't see them selling TOO much lower then $0.72 though.
Here's the Taiyo Yuden part number for the CD-Rs:
I don't know when the DVD-Rs will be available, but expect the CD-Rs sometime in June, probably from Supermediastore, and Rima.
