Just wanted to confirm the TY discs used by Fuji and older Sonys are probably the best I've used for a number of reasons (these have the foggy center ring): 1. The protective coating is very scratch-resistant (even Verbatum + can't compare) 2. Only 2 bad TY discs in over 500 discs burned so far 3. My Sony CRX700E is VERY touchy at 8X -- wont burn much of anything that's cheap. Unfortunately, the Supremas by Sony made by Sony Corp. aren't as good as the Taiyo Yuden disks they used to use. As far as I'm concerned, the cyanine TY disks are the best around is mass quantity right now (Fuji).
