Yup, if you are going to spend that much money then go with Apple as they manufacter thier own dye and it is absolute top notch. You can find them at CompUSA and Fry's.

... and Fuji also use Prodisc. Ho hum.

However Ritek really is your best bet as they are cheaper and you will always find a Ritek dye on a Ritek disc
Nope. Ritek own Gigastorage. Gigastorage formulation is different to Ritek. They are similar, and both decent quality, but they are different. And even if you buy a Ritek brand-name, it's no guarantee you won't get a Gigastorage product. I bought some Ridata discs recently that were Gigastorage.

So, a disc with a Ritek MID may not have a Ritek dye at all.

There are also one or two Chinese factories producing cheap media with a Ritek MID. These discs are poor.

Never make the assumption that, because a media ID program tells you a disc is made by a certain manufacturer, that it really is, because it isn't always the case.
