An earlier thread alerting us to this new Fujifilm 8X +R packaging which looks like this:
If you have Fry’s near you then you should definitely go and check. As I was browsing inside Fry’s this afternoon…A whole stack of Blue Fujifilm Cakebox caught my attention. As I walk closer I can see all of them are in TY 50pack Trademark shape Cakebox. A little closer it reads: DVD+R, Up to 8X, MADE IN JAPAN printed on the Label It looks identical to the picture above.
To top it off the regular price is $39.99…There is a $10 rebate to bring it down to $29.99 + tax. The rebate is good for 50Pack +R, -R and 25Pack +R; expires 9/30 so plenty of time left. You can claim max. of 3 rebate per product type - upto a max. of $75 rebate amount.
Sure enough, pop one in DVDINFOPRO:

The media top is normal Fuji branded matt silver with “Made in Japan” and “Up to 8X” printed…No worry about getting fake stuff.
If Fry’s or Newegg carry these I would imagine most of the Chain stores will too…Good luck finding them folks.
Now I do have an excuse to get a NEC 3500A to test 16X burns
Yet to make my first burn but I do not expect to be disappointed doing these at 8X in my 2500A
