[QUOTE=minaelromany;2068069]25[/QUOTE]I’ll second that.
Unlike previous posters, I’ve found sometimes dramatic differences in quality between large and small packages of optical media, would it be CDR or DVDR.
Generally, the large packages I had were of lesser quality, with more marginal discs with spots, speckle, tiny scratches etc…; :a I think it’s because of the weight/resistance/tightness ratio leading to low-level damage during transport of these things.
I always advise to buy in the smallest possible packages, but 25-discs spindles are perfectly fine for DVDR in my experience, no need to buy in smaller packages. With CDR, 50-discs spindles have always been fine for me.
EDIT A notable exeption for me is TY CDRs, which are always top-notch in 100-discs packages, but maybe it’s because I always get them shrink-wrapped, never in cakeboxes.
