    Lower grade, smower grade,Ive burned over a 100 of those discs, and have yet to find an error, or a bad burn.I didnt know that dvd duping companies were experts in media grading.

    i agree with Jim Dandy. These are on sale b/c they are 4x media and everything is going to 8X and 16X. these are premium disc at an awesome price

    not true, some people are getting 8x discs also
    these are a lower grade than the other more expensive discs
    but they are still really good discs

    If these are indeed a lower grade of TY then I must say
    they are still better than 99% of the blank media out
    there. If it is genuine TY then it is first class.

    The last batch I bought of this 'value grade' TY from meritline were of the TYG02 8x -r variety. 50 burns later, and not one bad sector. Talking about the quality of these value disks compared to 'premium' TY's is padantic. Whether or not it's true, the only way for it to be meaningful is if the 'value' TY's performed less reliably. From my experience, they don't. So in my opinion, it's a moot point.

    I have also ordered these discs after reading the thread on the debate. I will have to say that it is a great deal for these discs, but for me anyway, the shipping sucks. I have ordered them over a week ago and they have yet to arrive. Supposed to arrive today and the tracking info shows they are still in California while I sit here in Michigan patiently waiting. If you order these discs, which I would recommend, prepare for a long ship wait! Just my 2 cents...

    @XeroRspct,
    It would help if you mentioned what site you bought them from. Everything I've bought from either meritline or supermediastore has arrived by day three, from Cali to Texas.

    And DONT buy from shop4tech.com. They are well known and confirmed for selling media with fake Taiyo Yuden MID's.

    No, the only TY media that is in question is the 4x media that several online retailers have been selling recently. The more expensive 8x TY media is top notch.
