www.supermediastore.com is selling Taiyo Yuden 4X DVD-R 200/$56 (free shipping).

That's $0.28 per disk for the best MIJ media on the market. Why would anyone even bother with store house brands or Costco overstock or any of the tons of chinese crap media masquerading as name brands. It is beyond me -- read my motto.

DVDs are heavy and blank ones don't qualify for media mail so S&H is not cheap unless they have promos.

I'm with you, Kelson. Although, I did make my first TY coaster earlier today.

Media deals this week, starting Sunday 1/29, as seen in the Sunday paper:

* Sony 25pk DVD-RW, $13 @ CompUSA
* Sony 50pk +/-R, $15 @ CompUSA
* Verbatim 50pk 16x +/- $15 @ OfficeMax
* TDK 25pk +/- $7 @ CircuitCity

And a special kind of DVD:
* One 120min Fuji VHS (!) tape Free after rebate at RiteAid. The RiteAid rebates are really cool: You just enter the receipt data on a website. No mailings, no UPC codes to cut.

Starting today, they are available at CompUSA for the same price. No S&H but with sales tax. The special is mentioned in the CompUSA insert in the Sunday paper.

It seems Supermediastore won't give you the shipping charges on the 100 pack of ty 4x unless you enter all your data first. Are the ground shipping charges so much that the 200 pack with free shipping is a better deal ?

Yes, their shipping costs have always been pretty stiff, but it's the price you pay these days to buy T-Y from a reputable dealer who doesn't sell fakes. A single 100 pack will cost you ~$9 in shipping and 2 will cost you ~$11.

The 200 pack with "free" shipping saves you $1 over buying 2X100 packs. Still, this is a very cheap price for T-Y. I'm used to paying $0.32-.33/disk. And even that price is still cheaper than most of the advertised store specials in the Sunday paper.

I just purchased 100 T-Y 4x DVD-R from Supermediastore myself and they are great. They burn at 8x and no coasters so far. I've burned about 15 so far. Hell of a deal for this "brand" of media!!

I was trying to be funny. Trying being the operative word

It is just a VHS tape. I mentioned it since a number of people with DVD recorders probably have stacks of VCR/VHs tapes as well, and Free is Free after rebate

Oh that's right! That one is cool for those who like the design of those discs. I should give them a try as well. They are my second favorite to the fake-vinyl CD-Rs. I wish they made fake-vinyl CD-RWs

Also from what I remember there's an HP 50pk for $15 at one of the office superstores (forgot which one), and 25pk silver Fujis for $10 @ Longs.

There's also a 10pk of Verbatim +R DL for $20 somewhere (I forgot where).

I think it was Best Buy. I know I saw them for sure in the Sunday paper though.

Yeah, though Amazon of course has the free shipping over $25 deal. (Yeah, I saw the further replies about the deal being in store too.)

Thanks...you are correct. I found them at BB on-line web site. It doesn't say they are 4X but the picture looks like the old 4x package. As far as I know there were only the 4x disc's in the format of a movie reel image.

Looks like I am headed for BB in the morning but they will either be all gone or they will only have one package of the -R disc's but 100's of +R disc's. I cleaned out 2 stores last year. Hopefully they restocked in the mean time. My recorders are 4x recorders and 4x disc's are getting hard to find. If they were 8x or 16x, I wouldn't bother but for 4x disc's I will clean them out if they have any.

Sorry, I forgot to specify at BB. Was half-asleep. Yeah, I think the only ones BB has are the 4X last time I looked about a week ago.

A few weeks ago (on Amazon) the media I was looking at did not qualify for free shipping, but now it looks like some of them qualify. They also had some silly $10 handling/delivery/installation fee on DVD players (and other electronics) which they also removed. Who would want some bozos to come in and install a dvd player for you? Come on! (Apparently they were doing this in order to prevent returns). With Prime (and free trial) 2-day shipping is always free, but I don't think Amazon has any media bargains anymore.

It was as I suspected. My closest BB had only (4) of the Verbatum DVD-R 25-packs which I grabbed. They had a ton of the DVD+R's though. I drove down to the next closest BB and they had about 25 of the DVD-R's which I grabbed 10 of them. That should do me for a long time.

I also found (2) of the Panasonic DVD-RAM 5-packs at the first store and didn't find any at the 2nd store. They were $9.99 so I took both of them. BB is completely sold out of these Panasonic DVD-RAMs at their on-line store and I don't think they will be stocking them in the future. It looks like they are switching over to Fuji DVD-RAM now. My local Super Walmart doesn't seem to stock any DVD-RAM now. The B&M's might be phasing out DVD-RAM soon. They must not sell many at their regular prices?

Weird. I got my last packs of Panny RAMs for 5/$4.99 at Best Buy. At a buck each, that's quite good. I cleaned them out, but there were more later. Then, I cleaned out 4 Walmarts once too, when the 3 packs were $4.97 in the DVD cases, though the clerks all marked them down to $2.97 for me. They got more later on as well. I haven't checked in the past month or so though.
Were the ones you got in the blue or green package?

The ones I got were in the blue package. I think you must have hit all the close-out sales. You certainly got some great prices but I doubt you can find them now. I think it won't be too long before DVD-RAM will be an internet-only item. I hope I am wrong but I have enough now (probably about 200) to last me for a couple of more years.

The biggest reason I like the Panny RAM is that anti-scratch coating. It really does work.

Those are very very nice prices you got them at! The cheapest I can find the 5-pack is $9.83 at Amazon with the A9 discount, no sales tax, and free shipping. I prefer to pay $1 (or less) per DVD-RAM

If I see them again, I'll post it.
If you live in Utah, too bad, because I'll have already wiped them out before I post.
