I just want to add, in Fry's Electronic there is the similar deal where you can get 50pk FUJI DVD+R 8X at $25 after rebate. However, becareful when you shop - I noticed the FUJI DVD-R which has a similar package, but it's said in Taiwan in the package instead of made in Japan. So maybe only the DVD+R media are TY made in Japan.
One question - Are these discs with code YUDEN000T02 good to burn in 16x? In Nero it has the option of burning at 16x with NEC 3500, just don't know how good the quality of the 16x burn is.
