TDK 50 pack cd-r $ 2.99 AR ($19.99-7IR-10MIR=$2.99)

Just be warned, for those of you who care, these TDK discs can be CMCs. Just picked up a spindle, expecting to get RiTEK.

At least the Fuji discs were a good deal.


#3

yeah given the choice between tdk and Fuji’s I would always go with the sure thing at least I know the fuji’s are always good and are worth the extra few bux

WARNING!..WARNING!

I just went to Best Buy in Colorado Springs, Colo. to pick up the Fuji 100 pack and to my dismay…They were…

TAIWANESE…

When I’ve bought the 100 pack before, they were always bundled as 2 50-pack’s…this time, nope, one single stack and they weren’t the SAME…

So since I went so far out of the way to pick them up, I went ahead and paid FULL price for the 50-packs…Made in Japan, Taiyo Yuden…they were $17.99…no rebate…

I was bummed…So beware…if you think you gettin’ the good ones…check the package carefully…Who knows, maybe the Taiwanese ones are ok, but I like the TY…

This was presented as a public service announcement for those who are meticulous and anal retentive about cdr’s…LIKE ME!

:cop:

Joel,

If those are made by Ritek, there’s nothing to worry about, 'coz the quality is the same.
I’ve done many scans of the recent Riteks and here are the 2 latest ones


#7

Hey Boskin,

I don’t know who the manufacturer is… I didn’t buy the 100-pack…just saw the discs looked different and “Made in Taiwan” on them…

Since I do alot of trading, many people only accept mitsui, ty or fuji(ty)…

I’ll just stick to the 50-packs, made in Japan, and wait for the rebates on them from now on, till I can verify the manufacturer of the “new” fuji’s…

I don’t wanna get cmc or a lousy maker…thanks for the head’s up about Ritek, though…

I’ve got a 100 pack of those Fujifilm CD-Rs Made in Taiwan. They are made by Prodisc. I tested one CD-R @ 48x burn and it came out with no errors - I used Nero CD Speed for the burning and reading.

here on the east coast they are 4.99 after rebate this week 12.99 - 8.00 rebate at my local bb they are all 48x TY’s but only 1 rebate per household :frowning: (sorry boskin kept these for myself lol)


#14

Thanks for the headsup Rgrimes…

I’m gonna get a couple cause even $12.99 is a great deal…plus I can also use other peoples addresses for a couple of “sneaky” rebates…:wink:

I hope the rebate :cop: don’t come after me!

:bow:

:bigsmile:


#15

“sneaky” rebates…

I’m telling on you!

I may be mistaken about the rebate, It could be only $8, I threw the flyer away.


#16

Hey rdgrimes…

I just got back from Colorado Springs BestBuy (120 mile roundtrip)with 2 packs of 50-Fuji (TY’s)…Yeah, the rebate is only $8.00…what a shame…that means after tax etc…each cdr costs about 12 cents…what a rip-off, huh?:bigsmile:

The girl at the counter had no problem ringing up 2 different sales so I could get 2 rebate forms…Now I just gotta wait about 10 weeks for the money back…:stuck_out_tongue:

I’ll be burning happily for the next couple of months or so…Yay!!!

I’m not afraid of you telling on me:cop:

cause you’ll probably do the same thing.:wink:

submit your rebate online here and get it back in 3 or 4 weeks sometimes less Link to fuji rebates


#18

Hey lagger thanks…

Problem is…I don’t have a printer…I wonder if a reasonable facsimile of the form would suffice?

Register online, copy pertinent info…send off for quick rebate?

I’ll investigate further…:wink:


#19

problemn with that is the form generated contains a unique bar code to identify your rebate request … maybe print to file or email the page to a friend with a printer will work for you
