Today my local Circuit City had plenty of Sony DVD+R 8X AccuCORE MIJ at the regular $30.00 plus price for package of 50.
CC honored this weeks BB ad and deducted an additonal $2.00 for price matching bringing total to $12.49 plus tax for 50 disks.

That really good even with the 110% price match at Staples including a 10.00 off coupon I only got them for about 11.20 for 50 so the differnece isn’t worth the gasoline.

Alan,
I agree. You would have to buy a lot of disks to make it worth driving to Florida from Jersey.:bigsmile:

Seriously though, since I have been reading this forum, I found that the bad copies of my DVD back-ups were media caused and not hardware or software.
I will never buy the “cheap stuff” again unless some member has checked it out and pronounced it quality.

Thats a very smart move. Good media = good backups.


#5

are the YUDEN000 T02(000) premium quality TY media though? Recently people were saying that they were more value-line level and not as high quality as the ‘old school’ TY Sonys or something? (I ask because it wasn’t made real clear)


#6

The deal is that we aren’t sure about the Accucore line. It isn’t confirmed to be value line but there seem to be a few more reports of errors with them.


#7

This is a really good deal. The pricematch was easy. Just show them the best buy ad and they ring you up. Came out to be $27.04 tax included for 2 50 packs.


#8

That sucks, oh well I guess they’re still good enough. Maybe the accucore means they’ll last longer than the old Sony TYs though


#9

I’ve had great success with the Sony TYs. I’ve burned a couple of spindles and have been very happy. The Fuji TYs I burned weren’t nearly as good.


#10

I will second that. They are my favorite media, MCC004 second.


#11

I told you guys to buy up the Burnmaster TY T02s when they were $30 per 100. Now you have to scramble around and deal with tax. The biggest mistake they made was discontining them. :sad:


#12

@ Chas0039: Last week when Best Buy had them on sale I 110% pricematched them at Staples and got 100 for 22.67 Tax included. They burn great, all this talk about the new Accucore branded Sonys is bull, I get great burns with them as I got with the older ones, my problem was I needed a new ide cable, I bought a new 18" 40 pin 80 conductor cable and now my burns are all awesome.


#13

i have to agree with alan. i see no differnce between the accucore branded and non-accucore branded sony ty’s. they are my favorite media, bar none. i have 400 of them now and will try a stock up again tomorrow.


#14

You are like me, I don’t even know what I will do with 15 spindles of media but I had to buy them, I have enough media for years and I will probably buy some more tommorrrow also. Its a sickness, mediaitis. I’ve got it bad.


#15

Well you beat my Burnmaster deal so I guess you win. Just remember, unburned media has a rather short shelf life, somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 years.


#16

@chas0039: I still have 2X media from 1998 that burns great, I was going to throw them away but I found a way to make them burn at 4x so I am using them up, they seem fine. Why would burned media last 100 years ( Taiyo Yuden ) and unburned last 3 years, I believe you but I just don’t understand.


#17

The upper limit was 7 years. I am glad to hear you are getting longer as I have a big stockpile as well. Thanks.


#18

I have about 500 of the Fuji tri-colored Yudens that came in 30 packs ( 3 different colors ) that I am saving for a time when I can reburn alot of my collection and use the colors to specify genre. I really hope they don’t go bad.


#19

I guess I wasn’t the only one to stockpile the MIJ tri-color Fuji 30 packs from Staples.
I have almost 300 of them saved for a rainy day. They seem to burn about as well as the Sony MIJ 8x discs plus the 3 little storage containers are great. I like to put burned cds
in them for car use. You can fit 12-13 cds in them.

this is one of the best ideas i’ve heard in a while! i have a few empty 10-pack spindles and cds strewn ALL over my car.

i take awful care of the cds in my car (hence why i back everything up! toss around the backups then when it stops working make a new one :))
