What´s the reason? Is it maybe because one manufacturer want to beat the other manuf. with low prices???

I don’t think so;)

What about that “organic” (read cow dung based) media I heard about years ago? Also, Why the hell is it still hard to get decent CD/DVD media in 100 spindles for less than $30? shipping and all the other associated costs must be a real bitch if these guys still arent making much money.

This affect the pricing for the end-users eventually. But nowadays, there are too much people who prefer the “C-Brands” because the lower price, that’s why this market is getting bigger and at a certain moment it seems like good media is hard to find… Yep… Good price/quality ratio media is hard to get…
