That’s not bad if it can be found… Which Best Buy store was that? (I don’t think this is a nationwide clearance, and certainly not available at

they have some like it here called mangers clearnce but there not nearly that cheap and can be found in a shoping cart packed in the ile ways not on the racks with the other media

Sometime bestbuy mixed the sale and clearance item… I will see tomorrow in local bestbuy if they mixed the 8x 25pack clearance (if exists) with the 16x 25pack! The last time I was there a couple days ago, both have the same price 19.99 (8x and 16x 25pack).

I found them in a best buy on interstate 35 south of fort worth. They had a shelf full of them, but when I went back the $2.99 ones were gone.

I accidentally burned this disc at 16x and it was skipping badly on my Sony DVD player in my living room. Here’s a scan.

I can confirm that there is some sort of an unannounced semi-clearance on 8x Memorex +R at Best Buy. The one closest to me sells 50-packs for $14.99, but 10-packs are still $12.99. They were surprised by the price of the 50-pack… apparently, it was not marked as $14.99 on the shelf. I haven’t asked about 25-packs, but it’s pretty clear that these prices are different between stores.

If you feel adventurous, try your local best Buy and, of course, report your findings here. :slight_smile:

I think they are clearing out for the 16x Memorex media.

I went out and got a 50-pack of 8x +R. Made in India, MBIPG101R04. Never burned this media before. They are okay, but I’ve seen better. Much better.

Similar bunches of PI failures in the first 250 MB, with two different burners. Looks like somebody didn’t keep an eye on the quality of the stampers.
