Which TDK DVD-R's or DVD+R's are better ? Those made in China or India ?

Starting January 29th, Costco is having a sale on TDK printable 16x blank DVDs (with the coupon). The deal is $20 off a $41 dollar spindle of 100 discs.

I remember reading a discussion here or at that other place where the general consensus was that TDK DVDs made in China were significantly more reliable than those made in India, or vise versa, I don't remember.
Costco now has stickers on each spindle of blanks indicating very clearly where they were manufactured.

Does anyone know which country the good DVD's come from ?

I read somewhere that the suggestion was to only buy DVD-Rs made in Taiwan or Japan.

the disks are $39.99 at our local costco, and w/ this year's sale, you don't have to buy mass quantities, as w/ the usual BOGO deal. it's simply a half off deal this time around, so you (we) can buy an odd number of spindles if we want...



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

technically, it is one per customer, according to the coupons.
