I only got 4 ads (5 with fry’s) but I would think that everybody is going to be running sales for the holidays. I guess they just didn’t put them all in the early edition. anyway, here is the media and burners.

Bestbuy
as already posted, best buy has fuji 100 packs for 39.99 5961872/5961916
dynex 16x internal burner 79.99 (no rebates) 7005439
fuji 5 pack mini dvd with jewel case (for camcorders I guess) 12.99 6556167

compusa sunday only!
100 pack dvd+/-r 19.99 316438/316430
16x mad dog external burner 130 - 20 instant - 30 mail in = 80$ 315353

compusa (good all week)
50 pack compusa dvd+/- 9.99 312097/313625
mad dog 16x burner 90 - 20 instant - 20 mail in = 50$ 314998 (dont trust the box if you are looking for a 3500). md-16xdvd9 is an nec 3500 and md-16xdvd9a2 is an nec 3520, but mad dog is putting a2 drives in boxes marked 16xdvd9, so open it at the store before you buy if you are looking for a 3500, and check the drive itself.
compusa brand 25 pack dvd+rw 7.99 316439/312099 (two item numbers so I’m guessing +/-)

fry’s
Fry’s has the usal gq crap media on sale
52x cd burner 19.99 3528314 limit 1
plextor 12x serial ata dvd burner 90 - 20 instant - 20 mail in = 50$ 4431516

Thats it for media and burners for the ads I hade avalable to me. I’m going to try to post all the other stuff like I usally do, but I have had several interuptions so I am getting a very late start. I also dont know if I have to work today or not. I was sceduled to but a tanker truck went off an overpass and exploded in front of my work (not kidding). That was part of the interuptions this morning. They of course are going to make every effort to open if possible (god forbid they loose a days sales) but right now the police won’t let anyone through, so If I don’t work I should have plenty of time to post.
More to come.

#11

thanks ripit for your hard work!


#12

Are they MIT?


#13

Looks like all the ones I have (without looking through every pack anyway) are MIT. Arn’t all ritek made in Taiwan? Fyi the nice thing about store brand is that you have a local guarentee. Looking on a pack, it has a round emblem that says complete satisfaction or your money back with 100% quality guarentee in the center. Below it says Our products have been tested by third party, independant research specialists and are guarenteed to be free of defects in materials and workman ship, or your money back!
It kind of eliminates that we won’t take back open media shit that some stores pull. It’s only 4x though.


#14

dont know. Anyway i just want to try some Ritek 04s on my pstwo, some guy told me that they’re great for it. Are they the real stuff?


#15

As far as I can tell they are ritek (not counterfeit). They seem to burn decent in my 3500 anyway (my liteon only likes the + and if I recall right + and - burn decent in my aopen too.


#16

can you post a few scans of them?


#17

You would have to ask that (you don’t know how disorganized my computers are right now, I cannot find anything in the wastelands that are my harddrives), lol!!
I actually found some pretty easily though (it kind of shocked me).
Look in this thread for scans with the aopen 1608@1616
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=129517&page=1&pp=25
On page 10, post 244 and on page 11, post 260
The scans are decent but not amazing or anything, but they are pretty good for how the aopen burns.
With the scans posted here, the first and second are with a 3500 (not sure on the firmware but most liklly 2fc as I have been running it for the majority of the time I have had the drive). The third is a +r on my liteon 851s@832s
Shit on a shingle, it won’t let me upload the scans from the 3500 because they have already been posted here
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=128797&page=2&pp=25
on page 2 so the one posted here is a +r with the liteon



#18

Nice scan ripit, anyhow, any advice on how to obtain the NEC 3500 on the mad dog, any distinctions that you can spot out? Like the version of Nero, the face plate, the serial number, picture of the box?? Any of those to distinguish the NEC 3500 from 3520? Please let me know.
thank you


#19

No unfortunatlly thier are not. The maddog/nec 3500 is a maddog model md-16xdvd9. The 3520 is a maddog model md-16xdvd9a2. Unfortunatlly, mad dog is taking boxes marked md-16xdvd9 and putting md-16xdvd9a2 drives in them (3520’s in boxes marked as 3500’s). At micro center, the manager opened about a dozen drives for a friend of mine. Everyone was marked on the box as a 3500 but contained a 3520 drive. I guess about all you can do is hope yo get lucky and get an old one. Maybe discuss it with the compusa manager and make sure that they will let you return it without a stocking fee (they might even open it right their before you buy it to check it out, they have done things like that for me before anyway).


#20

Thanks ripit!
