    when I 1st started burning DVD's everyone said to get Ritek....so I went to meritline and bought a 50 pack of Ritek...however they were not the Ridata Branded, I guess they were fakes, a bunch of coasters and $50 later I learned my lesson ONLY BUY THE Ridata Branded. Now I want to try the Taiyo Yuden's out but don't want to make the same mistake. are there Taiyo Yuden "fakes" ?? these are what plan to order:

    http://www.meritline.com/taiyo-yuden-8x-dvd-r-silver-thermal.html
    50 Pack Taiyo Yuden 8X DVD-R Media 4.7GB Silver Thermal Lacquer(DVD-R47ZZSB8), $0.49 each

    Are these The ones I want?? .49 sounds kinda cheap.

    let me know before I waste $$

    Thanks.

    Sounds like a good price, however they are made for thermal printers which are either $1000 plus expensive or low quality simple text. I have a bunch of them left and have since switched to ink jet printables which are qick, easy and high quality to print. If you like to use markers they will work well though.

    Those are them. I've gone through a few 100 of them without a problem. There have been some accusations of other brands faking the TY MID, but I don't know how prevalent it is, and it's usually with no name brands. Go with those and you'll be fine.

    fyi, TY brand discs carry no identirying marks, on the discs themselves or on the packaging.
