Sony Premium Orange & Blue

I've been using the Sony Premuim tapes in the orange packaging. Would there be any potential issues swapping to using the blue packaging ones?

Thanks

Dan,
I, too,have been using the orange box Sony's for a few years and was surprised to see that they had been replaced by the blue box version.
I was told, however, that the tape is exactly the same...only the packaging has changed. The old ones were assembled in France, the new package is assembled in Mexico...at least the last few 5 packs that I've purchased.
Hope this helps.
Ken
