Taiyo Yuden to end optical disc business

Found this blurb yesterday.

You might want to stock up if you like to use Taiyo Yuden blanks for your CD burns.

What's generally thought of as the best replacement? Verbatim?

I don't have further details.

You'll have to dig deeper than that.

Quote:
Rebranded Taiyo Yuden products can be found under Fujifilm, Maxell,
Panasonic, Plextor, TDK, Verbatim and other brands.
Goes to show you there's not much difference between brands.

Carwiz:

Have you kept up on this stuff? I have not.

Six or eight years ago, SOME Fuji packages were known to be Taiyo, but other Fujis were not. I think you had to get out a magnifying glass and look for "made in Japan" rather than "made in Malaysia" on the outer package to be sure of Taiyos. Something like that.

I don't burn much anymore, so I don't know the current situation.

I may have to buy discs in the future and am wondering if you have current knowledge. For all I know, 100% of some brands are Taiyo--or not.

Regardless, by next year, nothing will be re-branded Taiyo--if I read that blurb correctly.

Box makers make boxes. It doesn't matter to them what's printed on them. The same goes for any major manufacturer. I think the industry is down to two or three disk manufactures. The same goes for memory chips. Practically everything gets rebranded these days. I expect one or more of the major brands will buy the production line (equipment). There's not much choice for them if they want to continue selling discs. It's hard to tell where the quality will go though. Some major investor will pick up the slack or the disc will be like DDR and DDR2 memory modules. The prices will skyrocket on the little demand that remains.

To answer your question, no. I don't know but I would suspect that because the major brands have different quality levels, the different levels are made by other manufacturers. I think we'll all end up with lower quality at a higher price.

Imgburn will identify who made the Disc.

I use JVC/Taiyo Yuden Ink Jet printable discs in my recording studio. Imgburn identifies them correctly, and not the China OEM.

I've bought some Verbatim and some other house brand that I use for test mixes, etc and most are made in China and are mostly made by the same OEM.

You can download Taiyo's official announcement here:

News: Victor/JVC/Taiyo Yuden Exiting Recordable Media Market - Club Myce

It's brief, dated June 11.

4 named companies affected.

Their stock is off 10% since the May 28 peak on the Tokyo Exchange. It had been doing quite well until that time.

Too bad. I'll have to find another "premium" CD-R blank to use. Many recording studios use the JVC/Taiyo Yuden discs.

I've still got almost 200 CD-R's. But, I'll see what others are using or contemplating using.
