Having virtually run out of DVD media I had a good look around for good value, but high speed (12X or higher), media for my NEC 3500A.
The sites I searched were:
However, I found that ALL the best deals seemed to be found at CD-R Media. Here are the items I purchased, alongside their maximum burn speed on an NEC 3500/3520:
Maxell DVD-R 8X (MXL RG03) - 16X - Â£9.75 for 25 (30p each)
Sony DVD-R 8X (SONY08 D1) - 16X - Â£10.25 for 25 (41p each)
Verbatim DVD-R 8X (MCC 02RG20) - 12X - Â£10.25 for 25 (41p each)
Sony DVD+R 8X (SONY D11) - 12X - Â£10.25 for 25 (41p each)
Incidentally, I also bought a single Verbatim 12X DVD+R - mainly because I didn’t know what media code it would have. It turned out to be MCC003, giving a rather unimpressive 8X burn on an NEC 16X drive.
If anyone else knows of any very good deals like this in the UK, add them to the thread
