I wouldn't nessasarilly consider mcc003 the same as cmc. Just because they are made by cmc doesn't mean they will be the same quality as cmc media code stuff. They are using a mitsubishi dye and are following mitsubishi's production methods, standards and quality control. while I wouldn't have any problem using cmcmage01 (as it uses philips dye and seems to be decent), just my personal opinion, the mcc003 is beter.
@cmisenko, I would agree that were it cmcmage01 you would be just as well to get teon (fyi where are you getting 8x teon for 13 cents a disk). Thier is also some cheapo stuff that circuit city has been running for 7$ per 25 that is suposed to be cmc. I havent tried any yet though.
@djmind, mcc003 is very good media. If you prefer tdk it is on sale for the same price at the same place.
@dtog, if you want mcc004, keep an eye on bestbuy (or maybe it was circuit city, they are a block away from each other here so I get them mixed up). They have ran them for 12.99 per 25 (not the greatest price but not too bad for 16x media). !6x media does seem to be dropping in price some (though 8x is droping even more).
@atseng, not sure where you are but pastels are not avalable in the US.
@everybody. I have intended to post things like this in the past but I'm lasy. I live in Irving (outside of Dallas, TX) and the local newspaper has an early sunday edition that comes out on saturday morning. It has the sunday adds in it (compusa, office max, office depot, staples, circuit city, best buy etc.) so I can get them a day early. I usally buy one to see whats on sale. Would it be of benifit to any of you for me to post some of the dvd deals on saturday (if I can remember and not be to lasy to do it)?
