Archival Grade Panasonic BD-R : where to buy them?

vbimport

#1

LM-BRS2MQB25 (25GB)
LM-BRS5MQB25 (50GB)

I have googled a fair bit. Apart from some Japanese web sites (I can’t read Japanese much) I don’t seem to be able to find them anywhere.

Have anyone used them?

Where can I buy them online?

Thanks.

Could you post a link, chef? I haven’t seen them outside of Japan.

Seems to be “the older stuff”, not that with blue package…

Thanks chef :flower:

13 and 7 Euro each for 50GB and 25GB BD-R? Something tells me that these won’t be making it into the “cheapest BD-R” thread too soon ;).

But I do admire Panasonic for choosing to produce a top of the top of the line disc, price competition be d@mned :eek::).

Which links are they? I can’t quite work it out.

Was given a company in Singapore and this is how much they charge plus freight.

LM-BRS2MO825 US$300.00

LM-BRS5MQ825 US$630.00

I calced approx €23 per disc with this: http://www.mercateo.com/p/C1002-4287415/Panasonic_ARCHIVAL_GRADE_Professional.html

Maybe thats a cheaper solution:



#8

For me in Oz the Singapore source is still cheaper at US$12 per 25Gb BD-R and US$25.2 per 50Gb BD-R plus freight.

Freight is S$55 or about US$45 for 1kg

If two tub is 1kg then freight per disc is US$0.90

So total about US$13 per 25Gb BD-R (if you buy two tubs at the same time).

What drives/devices will you use with these discs?

All those links seem a bit confusing pricewise, but they all include a (pack of 4) at some point in the description. This site seems a little more clear that they are selling 100 50GB Archival Panasonic for 1,079.72 pounds.

These disks are certainly hard to find. Finally got mine from a dutch vendor, storage quality solution.
