I ask because I’ve got to the stage where I must have well over 100 DVD-RWs which are stockpiled with XviDs of TV series that I either missed or haven’t caught up with from years back.
My original reasoning was get re-recordables because these tv shows are things I’d probably watch the once and then when I’ve seen the whole disc, scrub and re-use. But I now question that decision on two counts…one, I have so much of a viewing backlog, a lot of the discs will be lying around for some time not being re-used. And that leads on to two, the price of high quality write once media has dropped (TY’s for less than 20p) while re-recordables has, by and large, not.
Therefore now with a write once Verb TY being a third of the price of a Verb DVD-RW, I’m wondering should I now stop repeatedly buying DVD-RWs.
I’m aware some people never use re-recordables but I’m interested in all views.
