Starting this week, Best Buy has a 100-pack of Fuji 4x +R discs on sale for $1/disc. Good price, and Fuji Ricohs are amongst the better Ricohs.
Alternatively, buy the 50-pack (not the 25-pack) of Samsung 4x +R at $1.14/disc from newegg.com. Unless things have changed over the course of a week, those should be Taiyo Yuden--the best there is.
Or, you can get the 50-pack RiData 4x +R from newegg.com. These are cheaper than the Fuji Ricohs at Best Buy, and while many people have reported RiData 4x +R to be RICOHJPNR01, there's a chance that you might get RITEKR02 (there have been reports of it being RITEKR02), which is not as good of media as RICOHJPNR01.
(newegg.com is based in Southern California; taxes for CA, NJ, and TN residents; shipping is usually free)
Or as rdgrimes often suggests, you can go to www.accaproducts.com (based in Southern CA; dunno about their shipping policy) and get your media there.
