    Taiyos are great, but not easy to find in the US. Honestly, I've yet to find a readily available CD-R in this country that's beaten KHypermedia by any margin that made the price difference worth it - 100 packs on sale for $14 every couple of weeks, burn up to 16x faster than rated, and better (consistent) overburn capacity than any other CDs I've tried - Taiyos included. That's just me, though.

    I don't know how I missed that one, but that's still twice as much as I pay for the ones I use right now, so...

    I basically always use Verbatim DL+ and I've never had any problems at all with them. I even have the first cdr I ever burned in the studio (in 1996 I think) and it still works absolutely perfect.

    TY is one of the few manufacturers that only makes media in Japan still.

    I strongly recommend TEVION CD-R and DVD+R here in germany. Never had any burning or weird reading probs with them. And they are a bargain in all ALDI discount shops. As far as I know there are ALDI discount shops worldwide right now and if you have one right next door give this CD-Rs a shot.
