I went to CompUSA and came across a SWEET DEAL… CompUSA-branded 4x DVD+R 100-pack for $24.99. That is after an instant rebate. I couldn’t help but pick up a spindle for such a great deal. I went through the spindle, and checked a random sample of 3 discs with QSuite and verified that they are RICOHJPN R01. I’ve changed the write strategy to R02 with MCSE and have been able to burn 3 discs straight with no probs at 12x.
The same deal applies to the CompUSA DVD-Rs as well. There were PLENTY of 100-packs for both CompUSA-branded 4x +/-. I’m thinking of going back and loading up on more!
Heads up though… I did notice that the spindle I picked up, which was not in a cake box, was “Made in Taiwan” and that those 100-pack DVD+R spindles with the cake box were “Made in Hong Kong”… I’m curious if those are a different make.
