    Maxwell disk are manufactured by several different companys..
    Maxwell - Ritek - RicohJapan - Taiyo Yuden

    All are pretty darn good manufacturer's. I was just stating I would rather buy some genuine TY's for less then those maxwells.. just an opinion

    Thanks BBmayo. I like the tdk's its just hard to test them all to see where they come from. Its the laziness factor. Thanks again!

    Ohhh my bad you asked about TDK LOL
    TDK's are a little more risky they are manufactured by

    [bold]TDK - RitekG04 - RicohJapan - Maxwell - CMC - MCC[/bold]

    You are taking a little chance with those because you could end up with the CMC disk's and we all know about those.. Generally speaking a good thing to look for on the packaging is made in Japan or Singapore and stay awy from made in Taiwan and Hong Kong.. :)

    Wow!

    I am glad I ordered the DVD blanks for $23.99 and got free shipping to boot (went over 25.00 with other item). I wonder how often Amazon changes there price.

    If you have a local Office Depot, they run a lot of maxell sales. I got 100 for $35 a few weeks ago. I usually buy them for no more than $20 a spindle of 50 and $10 spindle of 25.

    No Office Depot in this location. However, it looks like there are other good sources for Maxell Media.

    yeah, office depot does have great deals at times. last week i went i was able to pickup GOLD TOPS, which read out as MXL RG03, which i belive to be good discs. Usually , their sales fall for the yellow tops, the Ritek's but i lucked out. Still, for reliable, and quality media, def go for the Taiyo's.
