Yeah. I can't argue with that at all.

If that was not true, Memorex would have bellied-up by now....

In Canada, Staples is selling Verbatim 16x AZO DVD-R (or DVD+R) 100-disc spindles for $19.93. Looks like the price is good until May 1st.

SuperMediaStore, thru May 2: JVC Premium 16X DVD+R Gold Laquer, $22.99/100 pack. A bit less if you go nuts & buy 400 of 'em.

post #2736 of 2957
^^^I saw that too and thought it was a good price but wondered if they were truly Tys or JVC?

I don't get this at all. Go nuts? My normal order, when I reach a certain point, around 1500 blanks, is to purchase 600 more. That's is one case, so it's easy to order and easy for them to ship. Why would 400 be going nuts? I made 65 DVDs just last Saturday.

What difference is there between JVC/TY JDMR-ZZ-SB8 and JDMR-ZZ-SB ??

Supermediastore has both of these for the same price ($30.99), but one comes with envelopes. Both manufacturer numbers show up on the web, but do not seem to explain the differences.

Both the same... the "8" is the speed (8X), not usually used. "16" is for 16X discs, as shown in this media conversion table.

The first link comes in one of the cheap Ty cake boxes while the second is just the discs shrink wrapped but they include 100 paper sleeves. Personally I'd take the cake box because I don't like fiddling with the DVDs without the box but the shrink wrapping is quite sturdy, it's just what to do with them once opened. I still wonder if the JVC gold discs are actually MID TY02?
post #2741 of 2957
jjeff,

Unless I am mistaken, it appears both products from Supermediastore come in the cakebox, unless they are advertising it wrong. So, by what wajo has said, the product with the envelopes would be the better buy.

I was hoping that Supermediastore might have a sale, but I am getting low on stock, so I may have to bite at the higher price.
post #2742 of 2957
So it is I was thrown off by the photo, then by all means get the 100 free sleeves.

Simple solution I used to do many years ago when I was buying 100 disk shrink-wrap packs of the value line disks. Just save one of the old 100 disk cake boxes. Clear the wrap from the top and bottom center holes of the disk stack and skewer it on the cakebox spindle. Then unwrap the stack. No muss no fuss.
post #2744 of 2957
^^^I hadn't thought of that The first time I got one of those shrink wrapped packs I removed the whole shrink wrapping and had a mess on my hands. Using your method I'll put the stack in any of my other empty spindles except the Ty ones which I really detest because they are so flimsy. I've got loads of empty much better made spindles which should work just fine
post #2745 of 2957
^^^Many years ago, when I bought my first 100 disk batch of T-Y value line disks, I paid the extra $1.50 to get them with a cakebox. What I received was a tape-wrap stack and a cakebox -- packed side-by-side in the shipping box from SMS . After that, when I moved to 8X disks I switched to buying the Premium line and they came with the disks actually in the cakebox.

AKA $13.33/100(that old cross multiply and divide is coming in very handy now days). It's not just DVDs, mfgs. are screwing with(lowering) the count of many common items. Pop(aka soda) us to come in 12 and 24 packs, now I'm seeing more and more 10 and 20 packs! and don't get me started on fluid sizes! When was the last time you saw a real 64oz orange juice container or 1/2 gallon ice cream container! The 5 qt pails have gotten so small they are basically down to a gallon, the old 1/2 gallons are a puny 1.5 quarts(single serving around our house).

Don't forget coffee: remember when you used to buy a pound of coffee.

And why is regular pasta sold by the pound while whole-wheat only has 12 oz in the pack.

must be friday
post #2750 of 2957
At Supermediastore. Order at least 250 of them (i.e., ten 25-paks) and get the per disc price down to 18 cents. Add another 25-pak and get your order total above 50 bucks to get free shipping.

I don't know where these stand in the Great JVC vs. Taiyo Yuden Food Chain (we might've discussed it here but I'm drawing a blank), but they'd at least be good enough for making copies the fit somewhere above temporary watch-n-toss stuff on landfill-grade media but below the full-on TY/Verb 8x archival media for "keepers."

Note that these are +R, not -R. But I think all the SMS duplicators will accept +R and computer burners, too, right?
post #2751 of 2957
I saw those too but unfortunately when I asked earlier in this thread no one seemed to know if they were truly Ty discs(TY02) or something else. If they were Tys they might be worth it, although I really prefer -R in my Panasonics, they'd be fine in my SMS duplicator or PC. They do look nice with the gold tops If we get a report as to their ID and it's TY I might order a few to have around, I kind of like the smaller spindles on occasion.
post #2752 of 2957
Well, I ordered 300 of 'em, so we'll see. I won't use them in the DVDRs--strictly in the duplicator and my computers. I wanted to get more of the Verb AZO 16x DVD-Rs from Amazon, but the price is still stuck at $29 for 100, regardless of packaging type. And then this deal came along. I'm operating on the assumption that, given the price, these JVC are NOT gen-yoo-wine TYs. Unless SMS is discontinuing the 25-count paks or something and just wants to blow them out......
post #2753 of 2957
I got the JVC +R's a week ago when they had 100 @ $23 w/free shipping.
Nice looking gold top, good thick solid feel. Will use in my duplicator and newer Panny's.

$27.99 for the good JVC Taiyo Yuden Silver Lacquer 8X DVD-R Media (Premium Line) 100 Pack in Plastic Wrap. SMS hasn't had a decent sale($7 off) for what seems like forever. In fact the last real sale I've seen is the above post of almost a month ago....frown.gif

BTW what a crummy worthless search function with this new forum mad.gif for the life of me I couldn't find this thread, even searching for media deals this week something I've done many times before.....I finally resorted to scrolling down the page of DVDR threads and found it many pages down! Sure love all the upgrades this new version has given us........
post #2755 of 2957
Amazon has Verbatim AZO DVD+R 16X- that's *Plus* R; for $21.99/100. Be sure to choose the retail packaging option. The AZO -R's are still at $28.99/100 in either package.

I agree that the new search function is virtually worthless. I now use Google for searches.

Nice cool.gif searching for avsforum.com media deals this week found this thread, top of the list! Thanks for the tip smile.gif
Wasn't a search option of the old forum to use Google Search? I never used it before but I couldn't find the option in this new forum, am I just missing it or is that option now gone?
post #2758 of 2957
Newegg has 20% off Verbatim media for the 4th of July. Use code EMCNCNG243 at checkout.
post #2759 of 2957
^^^
thanks but when I try that code I get "There was a problem The promotional code you entered is not valid."
I tried it with the above +Rs and thinking maybe I couldn't stack the deals I tried it on some -R Verbs but got the same error code confused.gif
Is the above code only good on the 4th?
$17.60 for 100 +Rs(21.99-20%) would be a great deal and purchasing 2 spindles would give you free shipping smile.gif sure wish it was -'s though.

I think the Google search is gone from the forum.

You can tell Google to only give results from this forum by adding site:avsforum.com at the end of your search words. Check out this demonstration.
