    I assume you're in Canada, right? If so, I hear that blankmedia.ca is the cheapest place to buy TY. As far as the media codes go, I'm pretty sure that TYG01 is the 4x media, and TYG02 is the 8x media. In terms of quality, there is no difference.

    But ive looked at the site rima..is much cheaper even after exchange rate... and then some
    blankmedia.ca has 100 TY - YUDEN000T01 4x for $84 cdn
    blankmedia.ca also has 100 TY - TYG02 4x for $69
    rima.com has 100 TY - TYG02 or TY02 4x for 48 american (59) cdn

    Ok, but whats the shipping costs from both sites? RIMA is located in the US. And aren't their taxes for importing goods? You'll find that blankmedia is the cheapest source for TY disks in canada

    Dav3. Trust me as I live in Canada too. When your shipment gets to the border you will have to pay either
    or the GST and the PST plus the shipping charges as well
    as brokerage charges, depending on who the shipping
    company is EG: UPS FEDEX etc. Something to consider
    as well as the exchange rate. I have ordered from the
    USA and it finally cost me 20% more than I could have
    purchased the same goods here in Canada after all the
    extra charges. I buy mine at http://blankmedia.com
    Thanks Zeide.
