    genuine TY discs are considered to be some of the best in the market.

    My god!! Do a search on this site alone and you will see they are the best thing since sliced bread...

    Please follow the rules...

    Rule number 1. Before starting a new thread, use SEARCH first (located on top of the page..) to see if your question has been answered before!

    If you would have searched for Taiyo Yudens you would have found all kinds of post's about that media and 99.9% are good reviews :)

    I've used about 40 and 10 are coasters! Stick with Ridata! I am seeking a refund from Meritline now! Taiyo Yuden is garbage!

    With this users comments about "garbage TY" I guess that
    the opinion of 1,824,267 people are wrong and he is right. Maybe it is the person burning the media that is
    the problem. <very big grin> Zeide.

    Only 1,824,267! Must be an underestimate, after all this is Taiyo Yuden we're talking about!

    I picked up some Fujifilm +R's at walmart and to my surprise they showed up Taiyo Yudens T02. Great price and easy to find.

    as stated sooo many times in the past, Taiyo Yuden media is THE best imho. high quality, perfect burns, excellent playback, terrific compatibility w/ stand-alone dvd players. what more could someone ask for out of a media manufacturing company? good day to all.

    I have heard that these are the best media, In a couple of forums I see "G04" and stuff similar to that, can someone please tell me what it?

    hi,

    the "G04" u are referring to are made by Ritek, that is the media ID code on that particular disc when you run it through a dvdidentifier program; in my opinion, another decent media manufacturer. not #1 on my list of what i would use, but, 2nd or 3rd place. i have plenty of the Ritek Ridata branded G05's (8x dvd-r media) with no problems, others have reported issues with the GO5s, but they work perfectly on my setup.

    i naturally prefer the TYs (Taiyo Yudens) personally, but the Riteks are not too bad either. many people have had great success with the G04s and they are a decent disc.

    hope i helped clear up some questions you might have concerning media, please feel free to come back if you have any more. good luck
