[QUOTE=Wombler;2670993]That’s brilliant Dean and thanks for the very quick response.
Looks like I’m ordering the Panasonics then.
It’s a good price too, so anyone on the European side of things might be interested in this.
[B]Wombler[/B][/QUOTE]You’re welcome. The only brilliance involved is from our members posting their results with the re-designed Panasonics since a few of us noticed they were burning great a bit back;). I’ve not seen a single bad experience with them in the last year. Even Stiftung Warentest ranks them above Verbatims. I think you can safely save some money here :).
[QUOTE=Mickael007;2671384]blankmedia.ca ships to Canada and USA. I believe they have a full line of legit Falcon BD-R, 25GB only.
I’ve never bought these before, I’ve always bought Ritek (damn it) and am recently learning the error of my ways. Would legit Falcon (value) be alright?
35 bucks for 25. The non values are expensive and the panasonics are ridiculous.
But I’ve bought taiyo yuden dvd-r value line(another error, damn it) from blankmedia.ca for years and I give em two thumbs up. Will buy the regular ones now though, only couple bucks more. Hopefully this does not hold true to Falcon bd-r, lots more…(Edit: it’s pack of 50’s for 85, so not as bad a s i first thought, but still high)
Am I correct the two best regarded bd-r are Panasonic and Legit Falcon’s? What about TDK?
I just want to choose wisely after going cheap (ritek).
Cheers[/QUOTE]If you would like to get as far away from those Riteks as you can without spending a fortune, you might consider these Pannys. Just slightly more expensive than the Falcon value, cheaper than the Pro. Our members are getting impressive results with them, and recent price drops from Japanese sellers is making them a good option from what I’ve seen.
Stay well away from a “TDK” labeled spindle. They will likely be either Riteks or MBIs, and B grade examples of what those manufacturers are capable of producing, from what we are seeing.
