Mitsui & Taiyo Yuden CD-R blanks still the best?

    Years ago when I was buying blank CD-R's, I wanted to buy only the
    highest quality brands that were especially believed to last
    significantly longer than other ones that were known to become
    degraded eventually over the years. Back then, the brands that seemed
    to have the best reputations were Mitsui & Taiyo Yuden. So I bought
    Mitsuis exclusively until approx. 2003 when their latest 52X & 48X
    discs at the time started becoming unplayable in one of my CD
    players. So I soon switched to Fuji (FujiFilm) made in Japan by Taiyo
    Yuden, and bought enough of a supply to last a few years. Now I'm
    running out & need to buy some CD-R blanks soon. So are Taiyo Yuden &
    Mitsui still the best these days? If not, then what brands are now
    the best? Any help will be greatly appreciated - thanks.

    yea they are still one of the top brands
    i personally prefer the taiyo yuden since i have never had any coaster
    with them before and all of my other readers including cars and home
    ones can read them well. however i haven't really used the Mitsui 1s so
    i can't comment on them.
