Got a deal that really was not a deal

My son-in-law called me from office depot the other day, and said they had three left of office depot combo packs, which have 75 dvd+r and 25 cdrs in the pack for only five dollars a pack. So I said go ahead and get them at that price why not. Since I have a epson printer and print all my cdrs and dvds, I really did not have much need for them but I figure I will give one pack to a person who just got a burner they can learn on them and keep the other to packs in 10 or twenty years I might used them for testing and such. I wasted five of my printable cdrs this week trying out a new program so now I have something to waste. Also have not burnt any dvd+r I have always used dvd-r so now I got some of the+r to tryout. But when it comes to movies its is TY all the way for me.

Here is what dvdinfo said about the disk

Then what is your question could you elaborate exactly what seems to be the problem or what information you are trying to convey to us?

Just talking is there a problem with that? DO you have to have a problem? Thought someone else might want to check out their local office depots since they seem to selling these at a cheap price. Mostly I wanted to post the info on them so if others went there they would know what they are getting. It late and I talk to much when I get tired sorry about that.

Thank you for clarification, so having a pack of 100 (75 DVD+R +25 CDR) for $5 is a steal deal why then you are dissatisfy if I may ask.

enough enough enough I did not say I was (dissatisfied ) just that it was not much of deal for me. Did not say they were a steal either just cheap.

Then what is your problem?.

no problem

DO you have to have a problem

Sounds like a good deal to me (as opposed to a ‘deal that was not a deal’)… :confused: :stuck_out_tongue: Ritek +R media is decent, although I avoid their -R media.

When you say “not a deal”, everyone infers that you’re dissatisfied. That’s why everyone is waiting to hear what the problem was that makes this $5 DEAL “not a deal”. You haven’t said anything that keeps it from being a deal, so don’t be surprised that you keep getting the question “what’s the problem with them?”.
