The future of the DVD media market?

USED DVDs at Amazon

Several more "offers" like this on Amazon.

NO

Clicked on the 1st 10 pages on amazon of "other like this", your specific item was the ONLY item marked like this.

1 out of 100 does not in any way, shape, or form constitute any "future trend"
They simply may have had some damaged packaging...it happens occasionally (less than 1% of the time)

This Amazon search page (page 1 only) has 8 of 27 offers for USED.

Amazon has been advertising used "blank media" DVDs for a long time--years. This is hardly a new thing. What it means is rather humorous, but they have been doing it for quite a while. Maybe years ago someone was selling used camera flash-bulbs.

Yes I imagine it's not so much "used" as open box. Of course "used" write once DVDs would be pretty useless(coasters anyone ) but a 100 spindle with a few broken or scratched DVDs or broken packaging would be fine. The only thing I noticed from sellers other than Amazon with free shipping is lots of time with the shipping it made the DVDs cost more than Amazon normally sold them for new of course if it was Amazon selling the "used" DVDs and it included the free shipping(like at least one did that I noticed) I suppose it wouldn't be a bad deal.

Ugh. $14.99/50pack. That's even cheaper than the last time I bought them back in July.
$0.30/disk for BD-R. Unreal.

BD-R(DL) are also coming down. $1.72/disk in a 25pack.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

Yes SL BDs are now regularly priced below DL DVDR and it looks like DL BD is even approaching DL DVDR, unbelievable considering BD is 3x and DL BD almost 8x the capacity!
