Media deals this week - Page 78

post #2311 of 2957
Has Verbatim overcome that little "problem" they came to have when moving from one manufacturing location to another? Ever since I heard about the quality going down hill, I began avoiding them like the plague.

Are they back to their former quality again?

The Verbatim AZO 16x DVD-R I use give me most excellent burns with my 3 Maggy 3576s, Sylvania HDRV200F, Philips 2160, and my computer burners. The AZO 16x-R I have been buying from newegg (Made in United Arab Emirates) are giving me the highest quality scans I have seen from any of my equipment, better than TY 8x or 16x -Rs, better than the Sony MIJ by TY 8x +R's that were my former title holders. UAE AZO Verbs seems to be outstanding media. I also have very good results from the made in Taiwan 16x-R Verbs. But not as stellar as the UAE stuff.

BD-R burning is still very expensive. Verbatim BD-R are the good ones and they sell for $3 a disk in a 10 pack. Be careful not to be fooled by the low price and mistakenly purchase BD-R LTH unless your burner and target players explicitly state they support BD-R LTH. Most do not, at this time.

$14.99 for 100 HP + or -R at Staples this week, normally $54.99
$8.99 for 50, normally $28.99 both are 16x and probably Memorex clones.
post #2319 of 2957
I doubt they could Memorex clones. since clones are exact copies, something Memorex isn't good at. Perhaps Memorex mutants?

Is SuperMediaStore trying to pull a fast one?

I've noticed that SuperMediaStore has changed their links to the JVC TY 8x DVD-R media. Their Product Specification section now shows the media as 50 pack, instead of the usual 100 pack. Although the title still says 100 pack, the specification and even the link URL itself is a 50 pack.

Has anyone ordered from them very recently, and if so, have you received the 50 pack, or 100 pack?

Not a deal, a trap for the uninformed. These are BD-R LTH disks not traditional BD-R (which are still $3 each). Very few pieces of equipment work with LTH disks.

Alas, I noticed the same thing this just before coming here and seeing your post. Thanks for the heads-up!

Today- 10/28- is the last day for TY(aka JVC) Silver 8X DVD -R 100 disk cake box sale at SupermediaStore. I ordered 2 cake boxes of 100 disks each for $49.98 shipped total, should supply my needs for a long time to come.

I opened an account at SMS, had to re-do the order & pay through PayPal because it kept telling me my home address is invalid. Very annoying, as this address has been on our water bills for more than 30 years, UPS & FedEx have delivered to it for as long, and it's the same address on file with PP! Someone somewhere has their head in a very dark & smelly place.

I've encountered a similar problem a few times. The street I live on is officially "avenue." Sometimes, if I end the address with "Ave." I am told the address is incorrect, but they will take "St.," or just the street number and name, w/o Ave., or St. You might play with that, and see if it solves your problem.

Anyone familiar with LightScribe discs? My new duplicator can label them. Any idea on the cheapest place to get them? Any tips on using them?
post #2329 of 2957
I apologize in advance, about my dumb question. Here it is; I read everyones posting about only using quality blank DVDs to use in their Maggies. I burn a lot of music CD's.
I assume the people that post in this group use the same brands of Cd's that they use for DVD's when they are making music discs? I would prefer to make a product (DVD & CD) that will be long-lasting and of high quality. (But I have always subsribed to the old theory of just using what I could find on sale at Best Buy. And that the quality was similar (for CD's for music) Now reading in this group I have learned differently. Thanks
post #2330 of 2957
Well, I actually do burn music CD's, still. In fact these days I burn more CD-R than DVD-R. I use the same #1 brand for CD that I use for DVD -- Taiyo Yuden CD-R, shiny silver 52X.
post #2331 of 2957
I've been burning CDs on my PC for a long time. My CD Player in my van only plays CDs, CD-Rs and CD-RWs in the regular CD format so that's what I burn.

My favorite CD-Rs are the Fuji brand, I really couldn't care less what burn speed they are rated at so I buy ones with whatever speed are on sale. Sometimes I forget them in the car; sometimes I take them from a cool moist environment to a hot dry environment. I have some Fuji discs that must be 10 years old and each and every Fuji CDR I own works - and I own hundreds! I have some Kodak, Sony and Maxell CD-Rs that work well.

There are some no-name discs without a label that I bought cheap and most of those won't read anymore. Stay away from no brand CD-Rs.

Go with any Fuji CD-R and you'll be good for life.

Verbatim CD-R are available both Brick and Mortar Stores and online. OfficeMax runs 100pk for 12.99-15.99 several times per year. Newegg has them pretty reasonable most of the time.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817130953 $18.98 shipped today, cheaper some other times with Free Shipping specials. I like Taiyo Yuden CD-Rs too, but they are more expensive and available only online.

Costco has a instant savings(no coupon required) for $12 off a 100 spindle of Sony white printable +/- R DVDs. I believe they normally sell for ~$30 which should bring them under $20, no limit according to the ad.
Note this isn't as good as their BOGO coupon but I haven't seen that deal for probably a year now.
I believe this Sony media is pretty well regarded, especially for B&M media. I've had very good burns with it, in my PC and DVDRs and use it when I want a white surface that is easy to write on and read.
Valid Nov. 11-28th

Yea man, sometimes you can really find some unusually good deals if you look around and get lucky.

With the recent talk about T-Y discs possibly getting flaky i thought to buy verb DataLife Plus instead. At least they should still be good. G

post #2340 of 2957
SMS also lists Kodak 8x +R DLs, 50/$26.99. Anyone know anything about this media? I'm guessing it's crap, but the price is so nice!
