If you already shop at BUY.com you may want to check your e-mail today for a 6% off coupon which would bring this to $14.09 shipped.

I’m serious now. Is that what you call cheap?


#3

Tell me where you can find them cheaper for the same media.


#4

Sorry, I didn’t see the “6x” part. Though still not exactly cheap, 3 6x DL for $15 including shipping looks like a reasonable deal. 6x DL is new and rare so paying $15 for 3 DL cannot be helped. You pay to be a field-tester.

What I said above was not meant about your post but the general consensus on CDFreaks about DL media (taking high DL media prices for granted.)


#5

Kenshin, it’s still the 2.4x (MKM001). The description says “Certified to run at 4X and 6X speeds by the latest drives!”


#6

:sad: (Wondered why it’s 6x, not 8x.)


#7

all the Verb +R DL i’ve purchased (3x3pks, 1x10pk) have the “approved for high speed burning with compatible 4X/5X speed dvd+r dl drives” …note it’s 5x and nowhere does it say 6x…but i’ve achieved excellent quality results @ 6x.


#8

I dont think there is a firmware for my NEC 3500 that will allow me to burn DL at 8x… I may have to spring for an NEC 3540.


#9

Yup, The Pioneer 109 burns them at 6x without a hitch. :wink:


#10

CDW has this for just over $7, shipping is $9.99 regardless of quantity, you can find this deal in another thread, too lazy to copy the link


#11

Most DL drives today can overspeed-write MKM001, up to 8x.


#12

Does CDW also have DVD+R DL for the same price?


#13

my bad, they have the -R


#14

Buy.com has a 10% coupon on everything, so now that the price is $16, the coupon brings it down below $15, and tjhat’s less than 5 bucks a piece, with free shipping on order above $25, too.


#15

at this price, I will never jump on it. I will continue buying original movies since they are under $10 rather than using DL media at this price


#16

i’d rather pay money to blank media producers than to film studios…especially given the shit the **AAs pull these days… :wink:


#17

but hey, if they dont make movies, then what the hell you need those blanks for??


#18

im not worried, there’s enough people buying/goingto movies so they’ll keep makin’ em… :wink:

and i do use blanks for many more things than movies…

i worked for pretty much every movie studio/film distributor out there at one time…and let me tell you, they’re a bunch of morons…


#19

Some Movies at walmarts for $4.88, good selection too. And movies off newsgroup download, most are DVD5 or they compress down to DVD5 with 6-9 Pass CCE so I do not really need to buy DL media yet. What I really need is inkjet printable, now I still have around 300 Verbatim Inkjet printable, and Costco deal in august, buy a spindle of 100 TDK get a spindle of 100 for free, so $42 for 200 TDK TTG02 Inkjet printable is a great deal. And by the time DL media prices drop, we will see HD DVD and Blue Ray.

Home-made video? That was the first big application for those early-adopters of DVD recorders and PC DVD burners. One of my friends in Seoul wants to have 50-pack of DVD blanks to backup his RAW and JPG files from Nikon D70.

Most of the video files I have on my terabytes of HDD and thousands of DVD/CDs are not movies created in Hollywood either.
