    The one thing that I see is the conformity standards are different. I did not take the time to look at the differences in those standards, but I would bet others visiting this site may know what that means.

    Uh, easy one.

    One is [bold]dvd-r[/bold] while the other is [bold]dvd+r[/bold]. IMHO -r is better (besides being less expensive) if your burner is compatible with them.

    Also I think they are cheaper, with free shipping as well, from supermediastore.com. I'm a repeat customer there a few times over and I've never been disappointed.

    there is not much difference, but you must use the one your burner is designed for (unless you have a duel format burner).

    One has a model number that contains SM - I think this probably stands for Silver Matte. The other I'm not sure of, but as it is more expensive, it may be a printable variety. That is all I can think that would be different. The descriptions of the products do leave a lot to be desired!

    For whatever reason, I swear, the link you posted after the line above is the one I saw. But I could not have, or the conformity standards would have both been the same.

    Maybe I imagined it. I get all of my blank DVD's from newegg.
