I know I was, but that was not a big concern. I don’t need to keep data on CD’s long very often. Almost never, so I don’t need a lot of good quality CD’s. Most of the stuff I do involves making a MP3 disk for use in the car in very rare times, testing things out, ect. The only things I need to archive would be something like slipstreamed XP install disks. I don’t maintain a lot for systems that I build myself so the last thing I need is a bunch of HQ media that won’t be used. If I wanted to, I could have ordered online and gotten a a 50 pack for around $25 with shipping. And should I even need to make bulk things for archival needs, I will order online. But with the 10 pack, I will be using I think a total of 4 and I need one for this week.
It’s all need, and I didn’t need much and I needed one soon. I had the money, and in all honestly, I didn’t mind paying that much because of how long they will sit there blank.
