The offer is from Office Max, only until Feb.26, this Saturday. $4 of the rebate is mail-in, and I’ve read several bad things about mail-in rebate with Khypermedia, but without that is $0.16 per CD-R.
Normally I would do my own research but since time is short on this offer, I gave up and decided to ask here. I couldn’t find many reviews on KHypermedia products. How bad are they? Should I just give this up and get Taiyo-Yuden (the cheapest I found was $0.32), but of course, the quality would be higher. Still, 1/2 of the Khypermedia would have to be bad for the price of one disk to equal that of Taiyo Yuden. (Or is completely bad disc not the question, but just overall more bumps in a normal burn?) I estimate I’ll need 30 CD-Rs for the project I’m planning. I’m thinking of burning a series of DivX’s that are taking up space on my hard drive.
However (this should probably be another thread, but as long as you’re reading anyway), I just (or rather my parents did) got a new computer today. We’re thinking of buying a DVDRW for it. Should I just completely forget about this 30 CD-R thing and buy a drive and burn DVDs? Would this be more cost-effective? (I’ll need something to convert the DivX’s, the blanks, and of course the drive itself.)
Thanks for any advice.
P.S. While we’re near the topic, can you recommend a good DVDRW?
