I guess you cannot edit a poll but I though of another good option, so just comment on it. "I have several medias that I do not normaly use that I use for testing", bought it and got stuck with it, or bought it out of curosity.
I actually broke a barrier recentlly. I bought media that I had good reason to believe was of poor quality, out of morbid curiosity (knowing I could return it). Before you say, buying stuff to play with the intention of returning it is wrong, it just jacks up prices for us all, realsze I believe that too. This stuff was at my work though, and special circumstances apply.
1, purchase at my work does not effect the market, it is all out of date, overpriced, clearance (obsolete, discontinued etc).
2 Nobody is buying this media, it is siting on the shelves deterorating. Half or more will wind up being thrown in the trash ( I know because I throw away hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of merchandise a nite).
I have old princo, old 4x cmc, gq media code "sony", etc. All my crap testing medias were poor purchase from before I knew beter, except this latest, just had to see how jvc did...
