    Hi everyone,
    You may like to know Panasonic have got a Sale On for August. Thaey are dong a 5 Pack DVD-R for £9.99 reduced from £19.99!!!. I've had £500 quids worth,Beware however if you order from the Website they really sting on delivery charge, better off finding a local Pana Dealer.

    Regards

    Andy

    Isn't £2 per disc pretty expensive?

    Hi Ken,

    To be honest i am using the last of a batch of TDK's and they were £3.00 each plus VAT!!. I have learnt that if you buy really cheap media you will have a lot of places where you can put your glass down. If you buy expensive media then you tend not to use them. I hope i got a bargain.

    I have never had NE probs w/ cheap cd's or dvd-r's. I get the memorex 100 cd spindle from WalMart. Okay, so dvd's are more expensive, but WalMart dvd-r's are the same...no Probs. Cheap doesn't always mean bad. I've burned at speeds over what is rated on the cd and NEVER made a coaster. If you are having those problems, try slowing down you burning speed.

    SPITTA, you are paying too much for your media. Get Ritek G04's, they arent cheapies, for aorund £1.15 - £1.30 and you wont go back!

    Oriphus,

    Will these work on a Pioneer AO4?.

    By the way i am not knocking cheap media, i just feel that i have been caught out too often.

    Ritek G03 (88p per disc) on Pioneer 104 f/w 1.31 2x4all are superb @ X2 burning using RecordNow Deluxe (you'll get errors on outer edge of disc @x2 burning using Nero Burning Rom)

    Yeah - Herbsman has the A04 and all his Ritek G03 burns are great. The errors on the outer edge in Nero shouldnt really affect most of the movie, but the newly converted Herbsman will tell you that Veritas Record Now Deluxe is very good ;-)
