Best Blu Ray Media Brands Part 13: Taiyo Yuden/ JVC Media/ Discs Review

Taiyo Yuden is considered by many the nec plus ultra of DVD blank media. It acquired in 2008 the right to distribute its media products under the JVC brand, and has announced that all of its media products will transition to the JVC brand umbrella. When we analyzed Taiyo Yuden's user reviews in the DVD market, we found an outstanding 94% rating over a very large, highly statistically significant sample of reviews. When looking at Taiyo Yuden/ JVC Blu Ray media, we found BD-R LTH (low-to-high), BD-R, BD-RE, and BD-RE DL, but only one user review at this time.

 To create our predictive quality rating for Taiyo Yuden/ JVC Blu Ray media,  according to our standard Blu Ray media process, we added an equivalent of 10 user reviews with the brand's DVD media rating of 94%. Because the single user review, even added to our fictitious 10 DVD reviews, is a low sample, we lowered the resulting rating by 7% to allow for a negative statistical margin of error (with 95% certainty) of exactly 5%. Taiyo Yuden/ JVC's Blu Ray media predictive quality rating gathers a score of 84%, which should trend upwards by 5 to 10% as more user reviews are published.

  • Taiyo Yuden/ JVC's Blu Ray media predictive quality rating is 87%, a low rating for Taiyo Yuden which is solely due to the dearth of existing user reviews for the brand in the Blu Ray media market. 
  • While we cannot recommend the brand at this time for archival quality Blu Ray media since 3 user reviews is simply not enough, because of its outstanding record in the DVD arena, we consider Taiyo Yudejn/ JVC appropriate for non-archival uses where long term data loss is not a concern. We believe that is it highly probable that the brand will prove of high quality for Blu ray media - but we cannot prove it yet.

Next we review TDK blank Blu Ray media... So come back soon!
