You are absolutely right about this. Most of the Riteks I've burned in the past has either discolored or they just simply won't stop 'spinning' in my drives and freeze up my units (home/cars/computers) exactly like the Moser Baers.
...For example, they are the OEM for TDK's professional grade media, which produces scans that match or exceed the much-revered TY. It all depends on whether the client wants quality or quick-and-dirty throw-away junk.
I beg to differ on this. As far as I know, the ONLY media that is comparable (in league) to JVC/TY are Mitsui and Apogee (both CD-R -- if you can find at a reasonable price). Most TDKs I have or had are either manufactured by InfoDisc or CMC Magnetic, which, the latter is still "a tad" better than Moser Baer. They also mfd pro-media for HHBs. I stopped buying HHBs when they dropped their contract with Mitsubishi Chemicals over CMC; where I started having issues with ALL my discs.
