Red face Which one to choose – Duplication or Replication?

I need to make 10k copies of a DVD to distribute (for a campaign), and I have already chosen Xinnovators.com for this work (haven’t paid yet). Someone told me that duplication is way expensive but it worth all the money spent as it is faster and on other hand replication is cheaper but slower. Which one should I choose? Is there any difference in the quality? Any help appreciated.

If you are not in a hurry then go with cheaper.

In theory an optical disc that is pressed rather than burned has a greater probability of being playable on the widest variety of players. I'd check out actual prices before jumping to any conclusions.

At 10k copies a glass master and pressing is likely to be the economic and reliable option.
It's also easier to put a nice label on the disk with that too.

So you know duplication is burning discs from the master where replication is is pressing the discs? Definitely go replication. Less room for error with it being created as a whole item.
