I think the cheapest one is $40 bucks. I don't have a membership but a friend is going to make a trip there for me.

Okay folks, looks like they have finally shown up. I was wondering why the packaging and quantity of the 50 pack DL Verbatim seemed so out of place. It was reported earlier this year that Verbatim was going to start outsourcing SOME of it's DL media production to Moser Baer in India. I just had a confirmed report from a guy over at CDFREAKS who purchased a 50 pack of DL Verbatims from Sam's Club that they are Made In India (Moser Baer). Not saying don't jump on that deal, I'm just saying I would start checking the packaging and verify which country they are made in before purchasing. Moser Baer has had a mixed track record with their single layer media and given the fact that you can easily purchase Made In Sinapore MKM DL Verbs for only 10-15 cents more per disc, I personally wouldn't waste the money, unless you really can spare it for testing purposes. Who knows, some of these 50 packs might still be made in singapore, but you never know.

Not at those prices they won't. The one guy who bought them is returning them with due post haste. Here is a link to the thread discsussing them:

Ok - thought I'd contribute my findings on this for UK based people.

Cheapest place by some margin was actually eBay - one of the sellers will do 20 spindle packs for 28.99 plus 4.99 postage, but the postage drops to 2.50 for any more packs bought.

The seller was called saskia73b and here's an example auction number: 160111303978

Having bought 2 of these, I've now found an even cheaper source by some margin.

http://www.wizardpri...-_storage_media

This place sells 10 packs for 10.33 including VAT - the postage is very high at 10, but this covers up to 30kg so if you buy a load of them, you'll save a fortune. I've just place an order for 20 cake tins and the postage is still 10 - can't find anywhere getting anywhere near this price.

Note: the website is dodgy, and will calculate the postage incorrectly (peaks at 30 after adding 12 or so, then stays at 30). However, if you place the order and then ring up the customer service number, they'll amend the order to 10 postage and refund the difference - I have an email to that effect from the customer service department who say the website gets 'confused' smile.gif

Hope this helps someone.

Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB/240 min. 2.4X - 30 pk (these are out of stock at the moment so no price)

30 pack


The price for the Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5GB/240 min. 2.4X - 30 pk is $49.84+Tax... which makes the price per DVD+R DL about $ 1.80/Per in my area... The good thing is that this are not from India but from Singapore... So they are consider the good ones...

The bad thing is that just a few are available in a few locations... So go to their site and look for the one that shows they have 1 available... But they should have more then one in store... But not many... One location I called had 13 of them left today...

Not sure if I will get a few of the 30 pack and 1 of the 50 or if I will stick to only getting as many as I can of the 30 pack...

If you order 4 packs or more (or if your local store happens to have them) you can get a better deal from Officemax. 10 packs for $15+tax each. If you order in large quantities then you can try tracking down a coupon and get them for quite cheap. I ordered 10 packs of 10 from them and used a $30 off $150 coupon and ended up paying roughly $1.28 a disc and they are the exact same things as those 30 packs at Sam's Club and are all made in Singapore. Don't quote me on this but methinks that Verbatim might do like Fujifilm and outsource their largest quantities to Moser Baer in India (ie 50 packs or larger) but the smaller quantities will still be made in Singapore. Verbatim did say that some production will still be handled by MKM in Singapore so they aren't ceasing all production.

TY JR777...

I had gone to Sam's yesterday and got 120 DVD+R DL's Verbatim's(Singapore) for about $1.80 per DVD-R DL after taxes... Thanks to u... I'll be returning them this week... Glad I hadn't opened any of them yet...

Thanks to u'r info I was able to call in an order to OfficeMax of 100 DVD+R DL's Verbatim's(Singapore) this morning and I was able to get the same discount of $30 off $150... Making my cost per DVD+R DL $1.31 after taxes... So u just saved me $50 bucks... laugh.gif

If anybody is in need of 100 DVD+R DL's Verbatim's(Singapore)... All u need to do to get this deal is to call the order in (1-877-OFFICEMAX) of 10 packs(If u order more then 10 packs... U won't save as much $$$)... And add a box of paper clips to go over the $150 mark... When I called the cheapest box of paper clips they had where $1.09... Do like if u'r ordering from their catalog and mention offer # 117980320402 ($30 off $150)... I found the offer # @ DealSPL. This is the only way I was able to get this deal since the coupon codes out there have already been used up... But they are taking the offer #... I should have my DVD's tomorrow..

After looking around the net for over week... This is the best price I was able to get...

TY for the hook up JR777...

Damn.. I love this forum.. Glad I am back in the scene... cool.gif

They also have a 49 cent staple puller and a 50 cent marker on there which will both put it just over the $150 mark so you can use the coupon. Yeah, I always stay on top of the best prices of DL media as my business depends on it. wink.gif

I just spotted a way better deal than Future Shop for Canadians:
Direct Canada's Verbatim section

I haven't used Direct Canada (yet) but the few reviews I found about them were good.

BTW, what gives better result 8x or 2.4x ?
