I can’t even find Verbatims anywhere. A recon of the local shops yielded very little in terms of variety. Everybody carries the same crap… even if its tdk, or maxell on the outside, its still the same junk inside… Occassionaly I will see a stack of Philips here and there, but the big dogs are Memorex and Sony dominating everything, HP behind that. Welcome to the New World Order. This is why I panicked several years ago when Proctor and Gamble bought Gillette.
Even online stuff is getting harder to find. I have trouble with sites that don’t have a set price listed right away, making you click through pages and pages of how many you want first. Tell you what… Tell me now much they are and based on that I’ll tell you how many I want (or at least can afford…:)) But I agree with the vote for Rima.com - their shipping prices are reasonable too…
I asked a similar question about a month ago. If you wanna check out some of the answers I got too:
Also, I’ve been getting some mixed info on the verbatim stuff hearing that the 16x was not up to snuff, any opinions on this?
