$21.48 is about the best it gets for now. But the $15.99-$16.99 prices usually come between late Nov-Dec.
My order history from Amazon:
1. 11/27/15 - $15.99 a spindle
2. 12/15/14 - $15.99 a spindle
3. 12/15-19/13 - $16.99 a spindle

Yep I'm in the same boat. Although I don't burn as much K-Dramas to Dvd anymore. I have convinced a # of relatives &
friends to play these 720p mp4 files on their media players.

Thanks,

Last time I ordered OQ BD-R was July/2015 at $15.98 each.
Came at the right time as I've been burning a lot lately.
LOL, $0.30/disk for BD-R.
2 spindles for me.

Stumbled upon this Verbatim AZO deal on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003ZDNZSS...ing=UTF8&psc=1

$13.26 for 100.

Limit three per person. I've never seen them that cheap. Ordered my three immediately.

Still good as of now! Damn, wish my Panasonics played nice with +R discs They officially support the + format but the format is recorded somewhat funky and I just prefer to stick with -R discs, which are currently $21.48 which actually isn't too bad for 100 discs but I was waiting until they got under $20 which they do occasionally before I replenish my supply. Great deal for the +R folks, on great quality discs.

Yeah, I clicked on my old link and when I saw the price, I thought maybe there was a newer link with the lower price.

So I missed it this time. But $17.16 isn't bad. And B&H has them for $16.95, I think. So I might go for one of those. But my husband keeps trying to convince me that there will be lower prices on the Verbatims on Black Friday. I don't remember that happened last year, so I'm skeptical.

Last 2 years the BF prices for the Verbatims Dvd-r & Dvd+r were $15.99. The $13.26 & $12.98 were the cheapest I ever seen the Dv+r drop to on Amazon. Even the AmazonBasics 4.7 GB 16x DVD+R - 100 Pack Spindls dropped under $13.00 yesterday but back up to over $21. Once again cheapest price the Amazon Basics have ever been. Since 2010 I have brought 54 Verbatim Dvd-r, 6 Verbatim Dvd+r, & 15 Amazon Basic Dvd+r & -r 100 spindles.

It's been a long time since I looked at prices for Verbatim DVD+R DL (Azo). Last time I bought them they were just under $2/disk. I see now on Amazon the prices have dropped substantially into the $0.80/disk range.

BD-R DL is also dropping. While Optical Quantum BD-R is normally in the $0.50/disk range (barring the occasional exceptional sales that go for ~$0.30/disk), the BD-R DL has dropped below $2 into the $1.80/disk range (occasional sales drop it another $0.10-0.20/disk).

Optical media is still alive, well and selling.
Keep on burning

Actually the last time I purchased those DLs they were $39.95 for 50 and the time before that $34.95. Verbatim DLs just seem that high and never really drop more. I only use Verbatims in my standalones but truthfully am lucky to burn more than 1/2 dozen/year, at that rate I've got a 10 year supply
I use 10x that many in my PC and now that I've found a couple DVD drives that actually burn them well I'm almost using Windata DLs exclusively for PC burning. I get about 98% burn and verify rate and my oldest ones are now a couple years old and they still play. At $34.99/100 at Microcenter B&M you just can't beat the price. I've tried a couple other very cheap DLs off Amazon but none were cheaper than the Windatas and none really burned any better either.
I've toyed with archiving to HDDs but always come back to optical media

I always find the Verbatim DLs being to expensive also. About 3 years ago I brought five 50 pack spindles of Vinpower Digital - JVC OQDPRDL08LT Optical Quantum 8X 8.5 GB DVD+R DL. They were $17.99 each on Amazon. I still have 2 spindles left. I just don't use them that much. In fact I only use them when I burn 4 or 5 hours of Korean drama episodes to them.

Still buying HDDs, brought 2 Seagate - Backup Plus Hub 4TB External USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive for $80 each just last week.

I use to burn through 10+ Verbatim 100 spindles each year. Now I'm at about 2-3 spindles a year. I converted the majority of relatives & friends over to buying hard drives & storing & playing the Korean Drama episodes that way. I told the few hold out there is going to come a time when I say the hell with it & give up burning to dvd-+r.

Average time is about 35 minutes to convert (three 1 hour+ episodes) & burn at 8X. And that's using a 3 year old i7 computer. I can remember when it took by 2-3 times longer with a much slower processor. For a 16 episode drama that is 5-6 dvds, depending if I I use a dvd dl disc. And just think there are korean dramas that go from 12-100+ episodes.

I use both HDD and optical media. My video server is currently at 26TB for whole-house streaming, but for archival copies of what I want to permanently keep on the server, I use optical media. I have 10yr old burned disks (DVD-R) that are stored properly as archival copies and have no problem being read by a BD burner if I need to transfer a copy to the server. That is archival. Had I used HDD's instead, what would I do with a 10yr old EIDE/PATA HDD? Can you even find a docking station for one? Over 5yr ago I migrated from DVD-R to BD-R for archival copies and never looked back -- I have several hundred T-Y Premium DVD-R blanks that I don't know what I'm ever going to do with. I don't have that many pictures to save and how many copies of the Win-10 install disks does one need.

HDD's are great for live media but I'm still sold on optical media which, as far as I'm concerned, has the longer lifetime.

I have had a substantial stockpile of blank media for a while. I have been whittling it down a bit and am now to the point of wanting to restock my dwindling supply and what I discovered was surprising. Have I been asleep and this "development" has been discussed, or is it a new thing? My original media of choice was simply labeled "Taiyo Yuden". Then T-Y purchased the name JVC media, and the label changed to, "JVC Victor Advanced Media Co., Ltd./Joint Venture of Taiyo Yuden Co. Ltd. and Victor Company of Japan Limited"


The JVC media seemed to be lower quality than the original T-Y media.


Anyway, in my recent searching for T-Y media, I found the JVC brand no longer available and a new brand was now being sold as authentic T-Y blank media: "CMC Pro - Powered by TY".


Here is the explanation I came across on one web page selling the products:


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Confused by the blank discs marked as CMC Pro - Powered by TY instead of JVC or Taiyo Yuden? Let us explain.

Taiyo Yuden has historically been the most reliable name in blank CD and blank DVD products, and quality conscious customers have sought that name for years. A few years back, Taiyo went and shook all that up.
Here's the scoop: In 2008, Taiyo Yuden purchased JVC's media group, and they became one and the same, taking advantage of JVC's royalty deals and brand recognition. There was no change in manufacturing. Taiyo Yuden still made the discs at its factory in Japan, but the part numbers and labeling changed to reflect the JVC brand.


Fast forward seven years to 2015, when Taiyo Yuden announced that it would stop production of all optical media products at the end of the year. CMC, a well-established optical media manufacturer, recognized an opportunity, and quickly moved to acquire the Taiyo Yuden technology that made JVC/TY the most trusted name in the business. Under the guidance of Taiyo Yuden engineers, CMC built specialized production lines, dedicated to producing its CMC Pro - Powered by TY line of premium blank discs. CMC manufactures CMC Pro using the exact same processes, raw materials, specifications and strict quality standards established by Taiyo Yuden. In addition to its dedication to maintain Taiyo Yuden/JVC quality, CMC also committed to producing all JVC/TY SKUs, ensuring that professionals can continue to get the formats and print surfaces required for their specific applications.
In a nutshell, that's the story of how Taiyo Yuden became JVC/Taiyo Yuden, which is now CMC Pro - Powered by TY Technology. Whatever you call them, at the end of the day, you're getting a great blank disc.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Okay, so are these really as good as the T-Ys of old, or the JVCs, or are they some appalling compromise composed of coasters?


Anyone know?

I suppose one could interpret it any way one wants -- that dealer does want to sell product, after all. But, if I were still burning DVD-R media I would be looking at Verbatim AZO once my supply of T-Y Premium was exhausted.

It's been a slow T-Y death spiral that started with the JVC "partnership" but I think T-Y has finally gone out of the premium optical media business. They were never a significant player in BD-R and were probably driven out of DVD-R by the low cost bottom feeders like CMC that you find everywhere. Although I have no direct information, I would be willing to bet the "technology" that CMC bought was the T-Y & JVC names to put on their standard product in an attempt to legitimize (hide) their low-end stuff -- while possibly charging a premium price for as long as they could get away with. Pretty much what funai does with the Philips and Magnavox brand names, among others.

CMC manufactures CMC Pro using the exact same processes, raw materials, specifications and strict quality standards established by Taiyo Yuden. In addition to its dedication to maintain Taiyo Yuden/JVC quality, CMC also committed to producing all JVC/TY SKUs, ensuring that professionals can continue to get the formats and print surfaces required for their specific applications.
In a nutshell, that's the story of how Taiyo Yuden became JVC/Taiyo Yuden, which is now CMC Pro - Powered by TY Technology. Whatever you call them, at the end of the day, you're getting a great blank disc.

Okay, so are these really as good as the T-Ys of old, or the JVCs, or are they some appalling compromise composed of coasters?


Anyone know?[/QUOTE]

The CMC Pro - Powered by TY Technology 8-16x 4.7GB DVD-R 100 spindles on Amazon go for about $42-$52. That's 2-2.5x price of Verbatim AZOs.

That Amazon price is also ~2X what they sell for at Supermediastore.com -- but still a lot more expensive than Verbatim AZO.

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