Media Buying Habits - Spindle Size

vbimport

#1

When you do buy media, how many discs do you get at once?

(If you buy multiple spindles, select the total number of discs altogether)


#2

This is sorta impossible to poll since the media purchases are so unique and most likely driven by the price level and again by the ‘need’ variable.

For example, I bought 1 100pk spindle one time. Another time, I bought 12 30-pk spindles. Both different times, both different prices. Yet, same media. So, what number do i choose for your poll?

Not sure how this poll will work. :slight_smile:


#3

I normally get a 25 or 50 disk spools, as they are the most avaliable reasonalbe quantities of disks.

I don’t think I could ever commit to getting more then 100 of a particular disk, in case they suck.


#4

good point… just choose the quantity you buy most often … just wanted an idea of how many people actually stock when they buy, and also gives and indicator which quantity is best value.


#5

Either packs of 50 or 100 if I get my preference. It kind of depends on my needs at the time and how good of a deal is available. Anything less and I run out, anything more and prices in media have dropped off by the time I get through the pack.


#6

Normally I buy 50Pcs Spindles. But when buying high quality CD-Rs I buy them in 10Packs with each disc pakced individually in Jewel cases. Quantity of packs or spindles varries depending on price and money I have.


#7

whatever’s on sale that’s 25pk or greater…


#8

I wish they would just all use 25 spindles. Or shrinkwrap. As a media seller at a small car boot, I like to sell media in 25 as many people only want 25

But many times I end up with spindle tubs of 100 and I have no 25 tubs to put them in :a


#9

You don’t want shinkwrapping. This packageing method most times has a very bad quality influence on the media.


#10

Well, I have 26 different media/MIDs and mostly they are in 15/20/25/50 pack spindles. For daily purpose I use TY02 DVD+R from Fuji/Sony/TDK in 50 packs. I may switch to Verbatim 16x since it’s available in 50packs with the same price as TY02s, if on sale (USD 19.99).


#11

For CD-Rs, I usually buy 200 discs on two 100-disc ‘cakebox’ spindles and when I buy DVD-Rs, it has traditionally been 50-disc spindles, but this will change to 100-disc spindles next buy.
