I just scored three MIS packs for $26.81/pack at the Elizabethtown, KY Sam's Club! There were three 50-packs left (all MIS). I would have purchased them all but my Sam's Club budget was already stretched. I had just come from Best Buy where they had MII 20-packs for $40.99.
It's funny...you can always tell shoppers who are in the know because the first thing we do when picking up Verbatim media is look for the "Made in..." line on the label. You either see a smile or a "D*MN" gesture.
My wife once asked me why I do that and I said "you don't want to know". Sometimes, ignorance is bliss, especially when you are extremely OCD like I am. I used to point out defective LCD pixels when using someone's system but after a few people tried to choke me for pointing out something that they were ignorant of and now cannot ignore, I stopped.
