For those that dont know, Taiyo Yuden is one of the top makes in the world, making discs for many of the most famous brands.

Cheers Pedroman, I forgot to mention that!
Also 100 TY discs are usually between £30 and £40!

Not just one of, they are the world's best media and currently hold the record for lowest number of errors on burnt optical media (by a significant amount).

I used to own my own DVD media company with my own brand of disk and spent a lot of time in negotiations with TY's EU office. I actually pointed out to Bigpockets back in 2004 that they were selling fake TY media, which they soon removed from their online store as a result.

I always buy my discs from Bigpockets, unfortunately I buy in bulk each time (saves on postage) so I'm some way off from another order right now!

They're very quick on delivery and they always pack their parcels really well!

Similar history to you....... We sold TU cd's under the philips brand, Ritek at the time were not too bad as a second choice. :thumbsup:

Yeah, been going since I started using computers pretty much, lol. Can't say I'm extremely impressed with their customer service but they're okay for a nice cut-price DVD site.

:thumbsup:
#11
They're actually a £1 cheaper per spindle here:
http://www.ukdvdr.co.uk/shop/product.php?productid=18735
however shipping is guaranteed next day courier, but the charges increase the more you buy, and the shipping charge is quoted before VAT is added.
Although, spend £250 and shipping is free!
#12
Found the customer service of BigPockets been pretty good. Ordered really bad mini DVD-R, my burner wouldn't burn at all on it. So was refunded promptly after a phone call.

My main media is Taiyo Yuden's, the Rolls Royce of media so far. :)

Thanks for the deal jayhab, good price :thumbsup:

Taiyo Yuden is one of the top makes in the world

Also thanks for the info Pedroman, i didnt know that and usually buy quite blindly when it comes to discs :roll:

Really? - I get their weekly update and that's it!
#18
Wish I knew about this last week with the choicestationery deal!
Still a good deal though.

Doesn't the fact they are Duplication Grade and branded Datasafe (who are bringing far too many Grade D or worse relabelled discs into this country) worry anyone?

Good dye is one thing, a disc which failed QC for Grade A is another...
#20
i find the maxell DVD-R at play.com are my preferred choice.never had a coaster yet and they are currently 3 for the price of 2 making them £8.66 for 50
#21
Try playing them in a couple of years. TYs or Verbatims are your best bet for archiving.

Nice find,rep given shame they arent printable as I need another batch.

Try playing these in a couple of years they'll do the same.

For that price and the fact they are labelled "duplication grade" and branded Datasafe, they are obviously discs which failed the quality control for Grade A TY.
#23
BEWARE!

As i have been navigating through the site, it seems to keep adding items i haven't picked such as 100x pack of DVD cases to my basket?! i remove it and then it re-appears later
#24
I always presumed 'duplication grade' meant that they were good? ;-(

You're probably logged into the same SessionID as someone else. If someone coppies the link from their own visit to the site then posts it for others, along with the webpage someones goes the session number in the url. As more and more people click on it, it keeps that session active. So when someone adds something to their basket, if you're in the same session, it'll go into yours too.

Visit the site again by typing in the address then find the item from there, you should be ok doing that.

To put anyone's fears to rest, these are superb discs. I've been through 2 packs of these, and not a single coaster (I get very few anyway, but still).

To add to that, any TY discs I've ever burned in the past have no problems reading back, even a year or 2 after, unlike others (Ritek mainly springs to mind).

This suggests you get errors with them! :-( Not good.
Should be no errors at all.

I wonder how they calculate the number of errors made with their discs! Customer surveys?
Sounds like a PR thing to me.
#29
You will always get PI/PIF errors when you burn discs, and they exist in factory pressed discs too, so it's unavoidable. All hardware is able to compensate for such errors, but fewer errors means smoother reads. Only when such errors exceed normal boundaries will your drive refuse to read them.

You can check your error rates using DVDInfo Pro.

Check out SVP site with reviews.

http://svp.co.uk/products-solo.php?pid=1800#reviews

If branded Datasafe treat as cheap disc and buy accordingly.
#31
ain't these dvd's Taiyo Yuden rejects!!! lol
#32
Rejects or not... TY rejects are still probably loads better than other brands' Grade A stock!!

BigPockets have had my email address for 2/3 years ago now, and all I get is one newsletter email a week.
I've ordered a few times from them and they've always been good, but I prefer SVP.
#36
So is this really a good deal, I was just about to buy a pack as almost run out of my Verbatims but all this talk about "its not grade A" and its "duplication grade" is worrying, I must admit I thought "duplication grade" meant they are good somehow!, reliability is very important to me.
Any clarification from disk experts would be appreciated! :D

Just for reference the guy who owns that site doesn't know jack about media, he has never even been to a factory let alone been involved in the industry.

The dye is important but then so are many other factors, such as the equipment used to actually spin the dye onto the disc, the quality of the actual plastic disks themselves, the environment in which the disks are made (they should be made in a hermatically sealed environment), and many other factors.

The fact of the matter is TY have every link in the chain just about perfect, which is why their media is such high quality. The quality of the stamper is actually much more important than the quality of the dye. Don't take anything that guy writes on his website seriously, because he seriously is full of crap.

If they are Datasafe, then they are almost definitely fake TYs. TY refused to do any business with Shaf (the guy who owns the datasafe brand) last time I was talking to them, but he does have his own disk printing facilities in Scotland (and I am not talking about an Epson R300) which he uses to overprint a lot of crap media which he ships in from the 3rd world markets.

I never visited the link from the OP I just assumed they would be real TYs given the fact that BigPockets have been caught selling fake TY in the past, but now I hear they are Datasafe, I would touch them with barge pole. So be warned everyone.

Sorry to say but your analysis is totally unqualified. No coaster does not equal good disks. I suggest you scan the recorded media for errors (using tools available on the net) if the disks have errors > 0.7 they are not TY disks.
