Should I get the RiTek?
Only if you like making frisbees!
In the CD Freaks Bargain Basement is a thread for the Verb's 10 pack @ $29.95 and free shipping. And a coupon to make the end price even less.
I would go for Verbatim because Ritek D01 isn't really known for good quality.Plus, these Verbatims can go up to 8x on a 1640
Verbatim is the only choice for DL media. If there is a Staples near by, run to them. They are closing out all Verbatim media, DL's are $5.50 per 3 pk. If the sales people don't know about it, insist that they scan it. One of the stores had no clue, but the headquartes puts the prices in on their network. I bought 6 3 pks. and 9 10 pks of 16x media ($2.50 per 10 pk, that's right $2.50).
