From the Music Direct picture, the BDR discs look so perfectly identical to the Ebay/AliExpress sourced ones it certainly makes me wonder if they're all coming from the same manufacturer.
I wouldn't doubt it. There are plenty of examples of seemingly knock-off Chinese manufactured products that are actually the same as what a higher-priced North American or European brand offers, especially their entry-level product lines that are sourced from Chinese manufacturers. I could list many audiophile products that are sourced from Chinese manufacturers based on Japanese and Western products that are re-branded as North American or European products. I wish this issue were not the case, but the reality of such a thing cannot be denied. From an end-user POV, the global economy is so convoluted that I feel little guilt about buying anything that offers the same quality at a lower price point, unless there is a level of blatant counterfeit fakery of poor quality involved in the matter, which needs to be recognized.
I agree, and there is nothing wrong with Chinese made products - they are usually as good or bad as the buyer / western reseller demands .
Cheap materials, poor quality control, for the lowest possible price, you can get that .
Decent quality, you can get that too, but you have to pay for it .
