Sony brand media is usually made either by Sony themselves (yes, they actually *DO* have a factory!) or by Lead Data. The Lead Data is more common then the real Sony. Luckily, the Sony brand Lead Data media is higher quality then regular Lead Data media... but still not that good from my experience. In fact, I suggest staying away from Sony media (CD-R/Ws) altogether!
