Now, as all the regulars on here know, I've been a staunch supporter of TY media for a long while. Well, for fun, I decided to whip out a disc I burned in around March-May of this year, at 16x, and test it out. You can view my results here:
As you can see, rather dissapointing, especially when compared to this TYG02 disc burned at 8x back in September 2004:
This has left me at a loss on what media to use. I have around 50 x TYG03 left, but it looks like that won't be used much. So far I've had Verbatim 16x DVD-R recommended to me, which I may give a shot. What about newer TYG02? Is that crappy now like the TYG03, or is it still good?
I have stuff to burn for friends, and certaintly won't be using TYG03 for it, but what do I use? Shell out the dough for the Verbatim 16x? Use TY 8x DVD+R using bit-setting? Decisions, decisions.
All I can say is that I'm horribly dissapointed in TY now.
