Yes, that's why I also prefer shopping at brick and mortar stores.
I do the same, but from the computer fairs, I am very lucky as I have about 3 or 4 of them, all less than half a hours drive from me, so I can get very close to interweb prices but get to sort thru the stuff and some of them are very willing to have a deal with you for cash
But saying that I have 'just' put a small order into SVP for verbage and some cheap Datawrite TYG03 (price was far too good to pass up).
I dont often go into PCworld, if I do its to get the feel of something and then order it on-line :o but if the prices are right I could do with some MIJ verbs, and I would be intrestead in getting some of each and testing them back to back. Because I have only had MII once, they were some of the first DVD media I got (at least very early on) and I did not know what I now do
