At least with SMS, they tell you up front in the product descriptor whether it is Premium Line or Value Line

I just talk to CR the discs are the prem line as the pic shows.[

Fair enough. I usually order them in groups of 600 at a time, which is a case. In those quantities, the disks from Rima are 26.5 cents per disk, and from Media Depot, they are 27 cents per disk. If you are only buying one stack of 100, then the Media Depot is a better deal. For a single stack of 100, SMS wants 36 cents a piece for them.

Today I purchased a low priced TDK CD-R spindle. This is the first product I've seen where the spindle base and top are threaded:

Verbatim AZO up to 16x at Amazon, ~$27/100, shipped. Here's a link to the -Rs: http://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-97460.../ref=pd_cp_e_2

And for 54 cents more, the +Rs: http://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-97459...=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

With the recent posts stating that good quality 16X disks are no harder on our stand-alone DVDRs than 8X, thought these might be worth posting. Of course, there's no indication of country of origin.

I purchased two 100 spindles on 03-15-12 for $21.99 per 100 spindle from Amazon.com. First time in a long time since they dropped that low on Amazon.com. The price dropped to $21.99 and then back up to $27.99 twice that day.

Your supposed to post here to let the rest of us know when they are having such a good deal, of course after you've already placed your order
I swear they must have 2 people hired full time just to change prices at Amazon I just don't get the purpose of their yo-yo pricing...

While that IS a great price, I'm afraid I have to pass on it. I still have close to 2000 blank T-Ys on a shelf (well, two shelves really) at the moment, so I think I'm good for a while.

Okay here you go it is now marked down to $21.99 at Amazon.com once again. For the Verbatim 95102 4.7 GB up to 16x Branded Recordable Disc DVD-R (100-Disc Spindle). Who knows how long this will last at that price. Make sure you pick the "retail packaging" one. The "Frustrationg-Free Packaging" one is still $26.99.

Thanks for the tip! just picked up 3 spindles of the "frustration" packaging I don't know, I've never had a problem opening up Verbatim spindles

Last time I purchased DLs I got 50 2.4x Verbatim +Rs for $39.99 shipped, no tax I purchased them from Newegg but Amazon had them for a few hours at that price too but I missed out so I got them for the same price at Newegg. If your open to lower quality DLs Microcenter regularly sells Windata 8x 100 spindles for $39.99 but with DLs I only trust Verbatims and prefer the 2.4x speed.
I never see great deals on -R DLs so DLs are the only time I use the + format DVDs in my Panasonics.

Well I forgot to purchase something else from Amazon so I needed to add to my order to get free shipping. I ordered 1 more spindle for $21.99 but when I placed the order I was told Amazon placed a limit on the DVDs It wouldn't let me purchase even one spindle this time! Not sure if they are out or the limit is 3 and the new order was tied to my previous order....bummer, no Mockingjay for the kid this order

For $21.99/100, I had to order the Verbatim AZO -Rs. Added to the ~270 TY/JVC 8X -R's on hand, I should be rolling in disks for at least a year.

Need something to make the $25 for free shipping? Here ya go- *Everybody* needs packing tape, & this has twice the normal amount, at the normal price!

The prices of BD-R have continued to decline. A 10-pack of Titan 4X BD-R is going for $0.86/disk at SupermediaStore.com if you buy 4 or more -- you have to buy 6 x 10-packs ($51.54) to get free shipping.

The price of Verbatim 6X BD-R LTH have gone through the floor -- $0.60/disk as a 20-pack. That's probably because they can't give them away. All the reviews basically say the same thing -- can't burn them; can't play them; got my money back; got burned. LTH is a total bust -- stay away.

Isn't LTH the only type of BR disk that Tayio-Yuden makes? Was that a bad decision on their part or what?

Yes and yes. They get the same poor reviews as the Verbatim LTH disks -- 5 yr after their introduction and still few players/burners support LTH -- only T-Y and Verbatim are LTH players. Given that the word is out about LTH disks, at $1.50/disk for the T-Y LTH, I can't see who would buy them over real BD-R. They can't even sell the Verbatim LTH at less than 1/2 the cost of T-Y LTH.

LTH was designed to be a cheaper organic dye based alternative to real BD-R that could be made on existing DVD-R lines with no new investment. And while it was cheaper at its introduction, they didn't count on the chinese pushing the manufacturing costs of real BD-R down so much and so fast. By the time they started making them in quantity for sale, chinese BD-R were already comparably priced and still dropping. Because BD-R is a different technology with a solid-state recording layer there appears to be little difference between the brands. The chinese stuff is getting consistently high marks. Verbatim has dropped the price of their real 6X BD-R to where their LTH disks were selling a year ago. At $1.64/disk in quantity they are price competitive with chinese 6X BD-R.

Probably more than you wanted to know.

Ditto. Can't say "no" to AZO Verbs at that price. I ordered 3 in Frustration Packaging (for 5 bucks less, I can deal with it). And no problem making the $25 Free Super Saver Shipping limit. I always keep a bunch of things in my saved cart that I want/need but don't have to have immediately. That way I always have something to toss on the pile if I need to make the FSSS threshhold.

Of course, these discs will be mostly for use in my newest Magnavox DVDRs and in my duplicator, though as I understand it from recent posts, the whole "8x is easier on your DVD drive than 16x" rule of thumb has come up for debate. (No, don't wanna open up that can o' worms here.)

Hi, I have always used Verbatim DVD+R disc in my computer however I have noticed that on Amazon, they have the DVD-R 100 disc for about $22 while the DVD+R 100 disc is about $28. Is there any difference between the DVD+R and the DVD-R if I am using my computer to burn the disc to be used in my 4 different DVD player? Thanks

Did you try and order more or like me just decide on 3? I'm thinking 3 may have been the limit because when I went back later and tried to order 1 more I was told I had reached the max limit I tried again today but they are back up to $27.21 The FFP are now lower at $26.99

csun213, I'd purchase whatever format is cheaper for your PC or Magnavox DVDRs. For Panasonics I always purchase - media even if a bit more, Pannys really don't like + media although all post '04 models will burn them.

Yep, only ordered 3......that's 300 more discs, and I'm pretty full up already on TY 8x and Verb 8x.

I guess I should have tried to put 4 in my basket to see what happens.....I got a little distracted, though, because I decided to pre-order the next re-release of RCA's Toscanini Collection (85 CDs for ~$1.75 a piece). Duplicates stuff I already have, but for that price....

Back on topic: lately I've noticed that SuperMediaStore hasn't been having as many sales on TY 8x. Wonder if it's become enough of a niche market they don't have to.

Good through 2/29

Boy, wish I'd seen this before it had expired!!!

Can anyone recommend any other brand RWs?

I've only used Verbatims for the last few years after getting so many coasters from the junk brands, but they go on sale sooooo infrequently.

thnx

You may be out of luck. I have a strong feeling that Verbatim will pull the plug on LTH.

MY LG GGW H20L is supposed to be able to burn LTH disks no problem but they did add support through firmware. Havent ever got any to try but I think it depends on the drive and the manufacture providing support for them.
The few BD disks I've burned with it play in my first gen Panasonic just fine, though I haven't bought any blanks because of cost. Nobody sell quality media in store now as far as DVD blanks go so it's like the old days when you'd check the codes on the package and disks trying to find a grade blanks and most of the time ending up with crappy CMC and other b grade stuff.
