Discussion in 'DVD±R media' started by dcervenka, Nov 15, 2004.
Looking for an on-line store to buy DVD-R media (preferably in the US). Any recommendations?
There's a few options. I personally think http://www.rima.com/ is probably one of the best right now.
You can also try http://www.supermediastore.com and
Are these a good deal?
Thanks. Intesting on the MeritLine.com recommendation. I looked them up on reseller ratings and they got poor marks.
Im a big EBAY fan and I bet you can find anything you want there and at the lowest prices, just have to have patience!
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.
Look in here:
This company delivers the goods.
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.
rima and newegg
can't beat them
Printable media? What is printable media? May be a dumbass question, but like some, I'm finally upgrading from standard cd-r/cdrw's to DVD's. Just got my new plextor dvd 12x dl burner
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?
Thanks for the info, guess I'll have to stick with the sticky labeling method
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.
Both companys are in CA, so I'll see who delivers the goods first. I'll keep you guys updated.
I dealed with these 4 and never have problem with them even some Dawners has some problem with them.
newegg newegg newegg need I say more??
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...)
