    There has been an announcement from Victor Advanced Media Co. stating that they are closing their business entirely by December. This includes the JVC subsidiaries that sell Taiyo Yuden made optical discs in the US, Europe and Asia.

    Seems like more stores aren't selling blu-rays and dvd discs are declining so this will affect online sales as well,i don't like streaming as much or cloud or storing on hdd so this kinda makes me sad.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.

    I still use quite a few BD discs for data backups. None really for a set top player.

    I burn more BD-R discs, but still burn some DVDs for standard definition recorded TV series that I want to save. I never used TY/JVC media, but I'm still sad to hear that they are closing up shop.

    I never found the JVC/TY discs. I wanted to try them but here in "Yurp" it's not really worth the effort to look.

    I have TY discs, bought here in Germany.
    I have never seen the JVC/TY discs.....these:

    I was hoping to see them in either MediaMarkt, Saturn or HWH Multimedia Stores....but they never arrived.

    hech,
    yes, those JVC/TY discs seem to have disappeared some time ago from the continent at least, though some UK suppliers still advertise them. I had some spindles of those "premium grade" non-printables as well as "photo grade" ("moon surface") white inkjet printables a couple of years back. Not a bad experience, but maybe there was a reason they were getting scarce after awhile.

    I believe the TYs still available here are (mostly) marketed/packaged as JVC-TYs.

  10. This absolutely sucks sh*t. I still use their very nice dvd-r media. Are the Verbatim discs still being made (not the life series)?

    Yes, though you have to be careful to get the ones that say AZO on the label.

    thanks, if I buy them it would be online (supermediastore) I will be careful. I knew to avoid the life series (hmm was it the data life plus that was ok?), but wanted to be sure as to which ones I should be looking for

    Just splunked down some money I did NOT want to spend and bought a slew of TY to have on hand

    When you can't even count on the Japanese for quality, well, I'd say the world is turning to shit.
