#1

only $5 for 15 starting tomorrow. Anyone knows if staples does a 110% pricematch on these?


#2

I have brought some from local OD. MAXELL DVD+R was made in Taiwan here. MAXELL DVD-R here got mixed with 2x (Taiwan), 4x (Japan) and 8x(Japan). I only got 4x (Japan, by TY). I believe the 8x is not TY, likely MAXELL MXL RG03.


#3

So what kind of burns are you guys getting with these. They work just fine and get good kprobes with both my burners but I have a friend interested in some so I was wondering how well they are working for everyone else?


#4

I use Pioneer A06 and NEC 2500. These DVD-Rs worked well. However, I can not make a K-probe diagram for you. :slight_smile:


#5

I bought 6 spindles (3 +'s, 3 -'s) as fillers on 1/5 at $5.96 each from Staples. I called them yesterday and they credited me back >$6, even though the OD seems to be in-store only as the website didn’t reflect the $4.99 price. The +Rs were rated at 8x and can be burned up to 12x, the -Rs I got were still 4x TYG01, which 8x burns had better results than 12x.


#6

I got some 8x maxells from staples 2 or so weeks ago when they were $6 there, +Rs, MAXELL002.

Burns aren’t so great with these, for most of the disc the PIFs are at 1 or 2, but there’s a lot, and then at about the 4.2 gig mark the errors shoot up and start to get real bad. No noticeable difference between burning at 4x and 8x on my 812s@832s. A strategy swap to MAXELL001 gives slightly better burns, but may be causing the errors toward the end of the disc, or making them worse.


#7

I got two MIJ 8x +R spindles, both MAXELL 002’s. There were both 4x and 8x spindles in +R at my store, but all I saw was 4x in -R. I didn’t see any of the Philips spindles which were advertised at the same price (not that I wanted any), but there were Memorex 8x +R at the same price. Both are likely CMC or made by CMC.


#8

I checked the local Office Depot near me in Hollywood, and there was ZIP, nade, nothing. All sold out… :frowning: Oh Well, I never liked the nasty bronze colored tops. hehe (Maxell DVD-R 8X) :slight_smile:


#9

Mine is out but the guy said he should have some more in tomorrow. I will definitely look into that tomorrow if I can get some TY DVD-R.


#10

hopefully you can get some, mine is out too,
the manager told me they aren’t going to stock up anymore of theses maxell,
this is the last time, good thing i got 30 packs sunday…
good luck


#11

Careful what you wish for, if you read elsewhere you will see that virtually all of the 120 discs that I purchased (6 packs) had defects in one way shape or form (spotting in the dye along the edge, fingerprints smeared all over them). I certainly won’t be buying any media from stores anytime soon. Less hassle to order straight from the manufacturer and get consistant quality. :wink:


#12

Jesterrace, you’re scaring everyone away from buying media at B&M stores…hehe :stuck_out_tongue: :wink: :slight_smile:


#13

I’ve purchased hundreds of dollars in media on sale in B&M stores in the past 12 months. I’ve never experienced any of the bad luck jesterrace reports. Even the free after rebate Princos I picked up awhile back was fine, but I used those as discs to give away. :slight_smile:
