Obviously I’m running really late (had to work late, had to take care of some stuff after work, and only got 3 hours sleep so I’m sitting here sucking down coffee, lol). As I was running late I didn’t want to complicate things and possibly run into problems by scanning at higher resolution like I said I would last week (havent got things completly setup though I have software installed on my new computer just waiting for photoshop actions to be setup once I get the setting right). I did play with resolution and compression and file conversion and such the other day and also played with some photo shop things like unsharp mask and edge sharpening). The circuit city ad’s first 3 pages are scanned twice. The first scan of each page is done as normal, the second scan is the same scan resolution and final resolution but with some modifications (diffrent modifications to each page). No rush, I havent even looked at them myself, but I would appreciate some feed back on if the second image is beter, same or worse (overall image as well as readability of the item numbers).
So on th the ads. I got everything (including staples, that was a shock), except compusa.
Bestbuy has verbatium 16x on sale but as has already been posted, only -r is shown in the ad (they have messed up their ads in the past, I wonder if +r is on sale too even though it is not show in the ad).
tdk at circuit city, hp 16x in all three spindle sizes (someone corect me if I am wrong but 16x hp isn’t new, right), memorex and tdk at other stores.
Though the staples ad is small and mostly school supplies which I do not post, there is staples media on sale. Someone correct me if I missed it (Been quite busy latlly), but we havent seen any staples 16x media on sale yet? there is staples dvd media 12.98 for 50, but with a new lable from what I have seen. I cannot identify the speed from the picture and it doesn’t say. What makes me wonder if it is something new is this. If you search the item numbers on staples site, it pulls up the old 8x media with diffrent item numbers. If you try to order by item number using the item numbers in the ad, the item numbers are not recognized. In otherwords there seems to be a new label and a new item number for staples media. Item numbers printed in the ad are 623598 and 623616.
Anyway, I have made everyone wait long enough, here they are.
