Question about BenQ DVD media

Hi,

This is my first post here :slight_smile:

I’m basically trying to get some info on BenQ 4x DVD+R. I have a LG GSA-4160B and have already burned my first 50 DVD flawlessly (they were BenQ 8x DVD+R that I got during boxing day for 18$ CDN, awesome deal). I am asking about the 4x because I found a really good deal on them at Future Shop, pricing a 200 pack for only 69.99$ CDN. I believe this would be a good price for them.

If anyone has a warning against that type of media, or knows where I could get better media for a good price, please let me know.

Yo-

Would seem to me that you may not be happy with two hundred discs that are essentially going to burn at 1/2 the speed of your previous discs - with older technology - at $35 CDN per 100 (Isn’t that great a deal) when you can get some 8x Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim or Maxell for about the same price - eh?

Hm…

Could you help me find stores that carry (good quality) 100 packs for ~35$ CDN? The stores I know (Future Shop & BestBuy) all have stupid exorbitant prices on DVD±R media. Most of the time it’s about 35$ for a 50 pack, and they’re mostly Memorex or some other no-name crap like that.

Thanks

Where are you located?

If you are in the Greater Vancouver area, you can pick up a 100 pack of the much talk about TY “Value” DVD-R(TYG01 or TYG02, depends on your luck) for CDN36.88 at NCIX.com outlets.

I’m actually located right next to Ottawa (city called Gatineau, in the province of Québec). Vancouver happens to be a bit too far :slight_smile:

what about this one? http://www.officedepot.ca/stores/input.do

Sadly, they do not have a store near me… Anyone else know a good store?

www.staples.ca
www.futureshop.ca
both of em have stores in your city i checked :slight_smile:

If you can wait until this Saturday, your best bet would be to go to ShopRBC.com in Ottawa (bells corners specifically), and get 100 4X Taiyo Yuden DVD-Rs for $34. It’s part of their “garage sale”.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add, that a) these are real TY, i’ve seen them, and b) RBC is probably the best computer store in Ottawa. :iagree:

No 8x media? :\

I’ve actually been to Staples this morning and all they had that was worth spending money on (read: other than their crappy home brand) were some Verbatim 50 packs for about 50$ CDN. Total rip off, and I think they were 4x too.

I checked Future Shop as well - only online though, so far - and I could only find some brands that aren’t that well regarded in these forums. I believe what I would want would be either TY or Verbatim, if possible 8x…

Where do you guys live to get such good deals (which are apparently your every prices?) on DVD±R media?
