Technology Inc. is a fairly new company from Taiwan which is
manufacturing CD & DVD optical media. The company was founded in
1997 as a subsidiary of BTC and their mission is to be the
"leading manufacturer of optical media in the world".
now the biggest Taiwanese CD media manufacturer has been RiTEK
Corporation but it seems that they now have some more competition!
As most products from Taiwan the
product needs to be cheap which usually results that the quality is
below average, the same also seem to apply for the Seantram
CD-R media. We have been testing a few CD-R's which are made by Seantram
and the result has been very bad!
We tested 5 Seantram made
Phthalocyanine (Type 8) CD-R's which resulted in 3 coasters, one even
failed the test-mode. As we almost never have coasters it is very
likely that either these CD-R's are not compatible with our CD-Writers
(Teac CD-R56S & Yamaha CRW4260S) or they are just plain bad! The
reseller, who send us these CD-R's, promised to have these CD-R's
replaced because they were from a "bad" badge so we will try
to test them again when the new badge arrives.
We also received a few e-mails warning
us that the Seantram made CD-R's from Samsung and BTC are of
very poor quality, even worse then the RiTEK made CD-R media!
At this moment Seantram is
manufacturing their CD-R's for Samsung,
and for their own Seantram brand.
