Well I've noticed a similarity between disc manufacturers and place of manufacture.... however I haven't narrowed it all down yet, and was wondering if anyone had more information I could use...
So far I've narrowed TY discs to be made in Japan. All discs I've purchased so far that are made in Japan, have been TY... Any other brands made in Japan, any bad ones to look out for?
I'm pretty sure Mitsubishi Chemicals Discs are produced in Mexico. I haven't come across any other brands made there.
Now the Taiwan part confuses me.. I know CMC discs are made here, which in part makes me want to stay away from Taiwan manufactured discs entirely. But are there actually any decent discs to come from there, and how do I tell them apart from cheap CMC discs? Boy if I ever buy another spindle of CMC they are going right in the garbage.
Anyone know where Ritek, ProDisc, Ricoh, and other brands I haven't mentioned are produced? And what brand name do they come under?
Basically I want to be able to try different brands while keeping as far away from CMC discs as possible. If anyone knows a failproof way of sorting the CMC discs from the bunch, I would really appreciate anyone posting some info on the subject.
