Has anyone purchased the cheap Sonic -R media for $14 for 50 discs & free shipping from shop4tech.com It is really awesome media, I have ordered about 200 DVD's and only 1 coaster. I have been very happy with how great my backup dvd's are coming out. I have been using DVD Shrink wich is really working out perfect. The reason I am posting this thread is because I have been hearing from some of my friends that cheap DVD's such as sonic and other cheap media use cheap dye and they will most usually degrade & last a year or less. I was guessing that they ment that they were a little rough on there DVD's like not storing them in cases and keeping them clean. Well yesterday 4 of my DVD's that has been stored for about 3 months that worked perfect were now skipping. I thought my DVD player was broke and bought a new SONY DVD player and same problem. All of my really old ritek copies still work fine but, every now and then the cheap media that worked fine when I first copied them I have skipping problems. Any thought's to what type of media I should be purchasing no matter how much it costs?? PLEASE HELP!!
