If it's made in Japan it is. I really like their 8x -R discs.

I thought I saw that CC had TDK 25 packs for $7.99 without rebates on the front page of their circular.

OK, I bought two 100 packs MIJ 8X. They scan as 12x in nero and Maxell 0002.
Are these a keeper?
Nice looking disks, but I guess 12x is all I will get from these.

I'll have to add eye glasses to my shopping list, along with the dental work, joint replacement, Rogaine, nose hair trimmer and Post It Notes!

12X????????? Should I take this back? My TY is burning at 16X. I have to admit these are the best DVDs I have seen on looks. But 16X is 16X maybe!

Are these Maxell as good as Taiyo Yuden? Will they last as long?

Based on the little that i've read.... no personal experience.

Both the Maxell -R (MXL RG03) and the +R (Maxell 0002) have been reported as high quality media. Some folks have reported reaching 16x with the -R's and 12x with the +R's. No mention of what the scans looked like. FYI, Ian used the +&-R in his NEC 3520 review.

ETP, have you tried any out with the new firmware?

-R was not MIJ, so I stayed clear. I will keep it even though it's only 12x. Disappointed but very nice looking media. May a new FW hack will burn this at 16X.

The Maxell -R 8x I got from Office Depot were MIJ (4 out of 20, the rest were MITaiwan). Guess I have to open them up and read the MID.

That was the Maxell media +RMIJ and both drives read it as 12X = 3500 and 716a. With all the work on the 3500 I thought there may be a hack for 16x with maxel0002
