    Looking for an on-line store to buy DVD-R media (preferably in the US). Any recommendations?

    I've heard of problems with meritline and supermediastore.
    I recently ordered ritek's from supermediastore and it took 4 days before they even shipped out (+ questionable customer service). And last week ordered cases from meritline and have yet to even get a confirmation e-mail, nevermind shipping notice...
    The Bestbuy deal looks pretty good though if you dont need printable discs.

    Yup, those are exactly the experiences I'm trying to avoid.

    As far as media... I'm looking for printable media. I checked out CompUSA (in store) and they only had DVD+R 8x.

    I always check the ads in the Sunday paper. Usually you can find deals that beat online prices, and you avoid the shipping costs and the wait. Last week I got Sony 25 spindle of DVD-R's for $9.99(Actually Staples beat that price by 10% with there 110% price gaurantee). And this week CompUSA has the CompUSA 15 pack of DVD-R's for $4.99.

    I've found good printable media very expensive or almost impossible to find in regular store's.

    axlman - Printable DVDs & CDs can be placed in a printer like the Epson R300/200 and by using their special tray you can print the graphics directly on the dvd/CD.

    Sounds like Rimas the way to go. Anyone else have any experience with them?

    I decided to order the sample pack of printable dvd-r media from rima.com and supermediastore.com. Both were shipped via std ground.

    rima.com sent me an order confirmation right away with another email with a tracking number an hour later.

    supermediastore.com... nothing.

    Both companys are in CA, so I'll see who delivers the goods first. I'll keep you guys updated.

    Update: Supermediastore sent my shipping confirmation today.

    Normally newegg.com would be my first choice, but their printable DVD-R selection is not as good as some of the other stores (They don't caryy Ritek or ProDisc media (DVD-R) and they don't have DVD cases, or printable inserts...)
