OT(ish) - floppy quality

Is anyone else finding that new floppy disks these days tend to be total
crud? I've just chucked yet another one (Sony) in the bin after it
survived reading the data I'd put on it back a total of two times before
it began to give read errors...

(It's not the drive; I get the same problem regularly using several
different drives, and have no trouble reading and writing to media
that's several years old)
