Haha, go on…get started, could create quite a discussion
I like MBI-made CDRs, too. Very few problems with those
Agree about retailers wanting to shift it quick . Also, people like a bargain , especially the way most peeps’ finances are these days. So unless you’re a regular visitor of CDFreaks/MyCE, or just happen to know a little about disc quality, that’s what “average Joe/Josephine” is likely to plump for, I think.
As you yourself have found, it’s a case of trial-and-error to find something that a) doesn’t break the bank, and b) gives decent enough quality.
Me, I try not to buy any DVD media these days, unless I can get Verbies on a deal - no special price Verbies, no purr-chase.
CDRs, I rarely buy now - still have plenty in my stash
