I am aware, but iirc error tests with e.g. CD-DVD Speed show the CMC Mag disks are less robust than the Japanese manufactured ones, though the formula is the same. This may have affected long-term longevity somewhat too but it's only been a couple of years, so it's hard to know for sure. In any case the theme in this thread seems to be 'dye matters, and proper storage matters quite a lot as well'.
I should have mentioned that they are still available though and are still probably your best bet.

As someone who has gone through a fire, I found that the hard drive is the safest place for a backup. I had some flawed Ritek CDRs and switched to JVC-Taiyo Yuden I haven't had a problem with them but now unavailable-Mickey
