    I also asked the same question a few weeks ago and was told that it is cheaper to buy them from one of the 'inexpensive' places on the net, overseas.

    No. I was trying to find out for a friend in Sydney. I was in Perth many years ago tho. Beautiful place.

    I think you'll find many threads in the forum on who is best/cheapest/etc for online DVD-R media sales.

    Laser... don't know it either. I tend to buy the brand name media (not too expensive in Japan). It's probably a good price for Australia. I recommend testing a couple first, make sure they work on the standalone player. Some cheap media don't burn at 2x (my Peioneer DVR-103 only burns the certain media at 2x) and have problems with standalone players. Good luck.

    I found the Laser ones to be ok... they're not the best. I live in Perth.

    I like to backup my PS2 games too and only the Verbatim ones they sell worked. The laser are only ok for PC data really. I have a few DivX movies on there and they played well enough 6 times over already.
