[QUOTE=Intelanot;2648537]I would love to try some of the Smartblu from Megamediamall for my pioneer BDR-2207 but there shipping does seem too high or you have to order too much product to get free shipping. Do they ever offer free or discounted shipping specials? I’m also having a hard time identifying the proper codes when looking at other websites for bd-r media. What other media would you recommend?[/QUOTE]
MediaMegaMall is primarily devoted to selling at the professional, large quantity level. Their deals are tailored to appeal to those buyers. They have offered free shipping on 2 spindle purchases before, but I haven’t seen that for a while now. If you happen to use Blu-ray cases, putting together an order of 100 of their double Blu-ray cases and a couple spindles of discs gives me a very reasonable $12.50 shipping and a good deal all-around.
We are all frustrated by the fact that most brands selling BD-R’s are switching to different sources and media codes and making buying them a game of Russian roulette :a. This is why a find like SmartBlu is such a breath of fresh air in the lower cost BD-R range.
The only other low cost option I would consider right now is Melody BD-Rs. They have been yielding good burn quality at 4-6x burn speeds in my burners. Not quite as much overspeed headroom as the SmartBlus.
