Best CD-Rs produced[edit]

I've used some Maxell products and I would say their CD-Rs are one of the best. No errors, detects everytime you put them into the CD-ROM drive. What else does Maxell do besides those IT/Media Storage products? --chapter1 09:00, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

They produce at least one model of headphones (HP-2000). Some guy 05:43, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure whether Maxell still manufactures their own storage media. At least in the DVD media section, only the Made in Japans could be Hitachi-made media, but they also buy media from Taiyo Yuden and Ritek. --Evilboy 20:37, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

the page[edit]

More than half the page is devoted to their one ad campaign. Doesn't there need to be more on the company itself? SKS2K6 09:22, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

This article is in need of much more research... As previous comment stated, over half the article is devoted to their ad campaign... But other problems exist: Maxell were not always owned by Hitachi... I think that may have occurred (sold to Hitachi) some time between 2000 and 2006... Also, Maxell have used for a LONG time (even before 'officially' outsourcing the manufacture of their DVD-R and +R stock) a VERY RESPECTED company called 'Taiyo Yuden' [ ] to fully make their (Maxell) discs. It says on the Taiyo Yuden wikei entry (above) that the deal involved CD-R, but I know personally, that it also involved blank DVD media until at least 2007 - and maybe still the case today. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:44, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

There was no Maxell MA-X[edit]

There was no such cassette as a Maxell "MA-X". MA-X was a TDK cassette. Maxell's most-sold 'metal' cassettes were called MX and (later) MX-S. There were other Maxell metal cassettes, like 'Metal CD' (low-grade) or 'Metal Vertex' (highest-grade cassette Maxell ever produced). But no 'MA-X'. I'm going to correct this instantly, because it's just so plain wrong. Please refer to dedicated cassette websites like And 'Metal Oxide' to describe the formulation of the cassette is also completely wrong, the whole point of 'metal' tapes being that they were oxyde-free. I'm going to correct that as well. The rest of that paragraph is stupid as well, but I don't feel like putting everything right. Oh, and I agree that devoting the majority of the article to one ad campaign is silly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:41, 27 May 2010 (UTC)


Well, I'm holding a maxell DVD Lens Cleaner in my hands right now, and on the back it is referred to as "DVD-LC". Should we see this as a whole new "DVD format" or is this just something from maxell? (Me-pawel 03:19, 24 October 2006 (UTC))

Fake Maxell CR-2032 batteries?[edit]

An eBay seller asserts:

"Please Beware of people selling cheap China kind Maxell batteries their freshness and capacity is very low. Though they are saying that the batteries are genuine maxell they are not. HITACHI maxell don’t make any alkaline button cell, these are cheap china batteries... You can confirm this with Maxell USA as well. Hitachi maxell Only makes the following numbers in alkaline button cells LR41, LR43,LR44,LR1120, LR 1130. But these numbers also they are selling the fake ones... Original Maxell batteries have a new HOLOGRAM SEALED BLISTER CARD. Which will you see in the picture in my listing. Fake Maxell batteries have a card board type packing and are normally multicolored packing..."

Can any of this be verified?- (talk) 14:46, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

I apologise for making what amounts to a trivial edit, "fixing" a broken line. I now know that it doesn't work in the citations section, and won't continue with that kind of edit. David Cannon (talk) 13:37, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
