    No more Verbs for me, I can get Tys cheaper, why take a risk when you don't have to.

    Verbatim DataLife Plus 8X DVD-R (DVDR) 4.7GB Shiny Silver Blank DVD Media in 50-Pack Cake Box

    looks good to me...they are actually the DATALIFE PLUS ones...Verbatim top notch stuff~ while expensive, even with the 15% coupon, well worth the money~ :)

    I might have to stop using them because my laptop sony dvd drive';s firmware doesnt recognize them.After I burn the movie it doesnt play back on my dvd player. although my desktop burns them perfectly.I was thinking about switching to tayio yuden t02 discs.

    I haate switching over brands but I hear the TYO2 are great discs. I saw them for 27 cents a piece on meritline.com

    can't go wrong w/ GENUINE TY discs...i think you mean the TYG02s...which are the 8x dvd-r ones :) as long as they are AUTHENTIC, you should be just fine...good luck~

    I purchased these from Meritline, they are genuine and as General 666 states have burned flawlessly. I have ordered these twice from Meritline with no problems :)

    @nykid,


    WAITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT, the ones that you found from meritline are NOT GENUINE TAIYO YUDENS~!!!!

    your link shows the "High Quality" Taiyo Yuden quality...those are NOT real Taiyo Yuden...i didn't know which ones you were looking at until you LINKED it~!!

    if it's NOT too late, cancel that order, LEGIT Taiyo Yudens 8x dvd-r will NEVER be $0.27/disc as you stated...i'm sorry i didn't catch that sooner...but check out this thread where i talked about it a bit more in detail:

    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/214293

    the "high quality" ones are NOT GENUINE Taiyo Yudens...i found this out after a 2nd more THOROUGH read on it...check out the thread above..i talked about it there more...

    hope it's not too late~

     They must mean Taiyo Yuden-like quality ... as in using TY quality as an example, huh ... Pretty sneaky thing for a major player like MaritLine to do ...

    I guess it's good to see that the real Taiyo Yuden disk have their logo right on the sale item! like in this:http://www.meritline.com/taiyo-yuden-dvd-media.html
    that way you can tell what is the real item and not the fake ones! TY quality indeed! what kind of s..t is that? how misleading!

    I must have missed the

    Because the ones I bought from Meritline were TY's. I agree with IHoe thats pretty sneaky and easy to mistake for the real thing.

    I saw that ad as well... "Crafty." I usually order mine from Supermediastore or Rima. No sense in going elsewhere as these two usually have very competitive prices, AND I know I will get authentic media. Just ordered 100 inkjet printable TYG02 from Rima (cheaper shipping) and now I need to get rid of a 50 spindle of the silver thermal TYG02's that I have yet to open. I just upgraded to the Epson R200... No more labels. LOL

    :) gotta read the fine print... when 1+1 does not equal 2, that is where you gotta be more careful~

    as much experience as i have had with genuine and fake TYS...just gotta realize that if it's TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE in regards to TY pricing, it USUALLY is~ :) don't fall for this "trick" by meritline, to be listed in the same category as the GENUINE TYs...who knows HOW many people have already fell for this before i pointed it out...

    to those that have...get a refund, as i have also purchased from meritline before and had a RMA not too long ago last month...they are pretty good about returns, don't get stuck w/ the fake stuff. :)
