Here in Portugal most people can't afford to buy good DVD media because they're expensive, and Portugal is not not a rich country. I bought a 10 pack of Princo DVD-R for 7,50â‚¬ (0,75 cent. each) and as I expected they work just fine, at least I got no coasters.
Everything seems to be fine, except a somewhat high CPU usage when reading/writing DVD media. [/B]
Not that expensive.
Here in Spain any type of media is much more expensive than in any other site, because the cannon of SGAE (0,60â‚¬) per DVDmedia, (DVD+DL will become 1.20â‚¬).
For some types of media the cannon does not apply.
The cheapest i can find in my city:
Bulkpaq: 1.06â‚¬ Unit (very crappy)
Princo: 1.13â‚¬ unit (crappy)
Ritek: 1.34â‚¬ Unit (i donÂ´t know the grade)
Quality media (the ones with cannon) is more expensive
Verbatim DVD-R: 3.00â‚¬ unit O_o
one DVD-RW: 5.00â‚¬ Unit
By internet sites(spanish) i've seen spindles of 100 units of bulkpaq. Price 60â‚¬
You can compare...
Im considering go to Portugal (30min in car) to buy media.
At least, the NEC2500A is more cheap here, i buyed mine at 101â‚¬. XD
