I normally buy Panasonic LM-AF120LU5 DVD-RAM blank 5 packs. These are 120 min, 4.7 GB 2~3 speed rewriteable single-sided Blank DVD Discs which I use in my Panasonic DMR-ES45V. They also are sometimes available in 10 packs and occasionally in 15 packs. I have found that usually the 5 packs are the cheapest way to buy them.
Lately, I have been unable to find the 5 or 10-packs at reasonable prices. Everyplace I normally buy them is out of stock. I have also done searches of numerous other dealers and virtually all of the reputable dealers and dealers with reasonable product and shipping prices are out of stock.
I have managed to find a few places still selling them but I would have to pay 35% - 40% higher for them than I have been used to paying. The merchants I normally buy them from say their shortage is only temporary but I don’t know what to believe.
So…does anyone know what the deal is with these and why they are so hard to find? Is there any other brand that is equally good in quality, cheaper and easier to find that I can use in their place? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
