I began using DVDs last year when VHS became officially extinct (no longer carried in the video stores around here). I decided to get a recorder for my PC while I was at it because my backups were growing past the point where CDs can hold them.
I purchased a 200 pack of Kodak DVD+R while they were on sale. It had a yellow label with a purple photo of a family watching a movie. They were 8x and made in India. I later purchased another one which I have not yet opened although it looks almost identical with only the markings on the disc surface being slightly different.
I recently checked to see if Futureshop had another sale on them but they did not even have them listed; neither did Office Depot. I got worried and checked around today and it seems that Kodak has discontinued making them. Is this correct?
If so, then what should I get instead? I only got these because they were a trusted brand name for really cheap (200 for less than $50 CAD.) I can’t buy 100 for $150, that’s too much for me; I’m looking for deals like that one. I also can’t buy from any old place, I need it to be available from a place like Futureshop or Office Depot or something where I can get them directly or go in and make a scene if what arrives in the mail is bad (it’s happened with both 200 packs.) I’m in Southwestern Ontario (Canada).
Thanks a lot.
