100 Pack Verbatim 48x CD-R Discs - $24.99 @ Target

Postby Ian on Thu Jan 02, 2003 9:37 pm

I stopped at Target tonight and they had 100 packs of Verbatim 48x discs for $24.99. No rebate.

They also had those weird looking digital vinyl discs on sale. 10 for $4.99

Verbatim DataLife Plus CD's are made by Mitsubishi Chemicals and the Verbatim ValueLife Plus CD's are made by CMC. However there was a thread awhile back that speculated on both Verbatim CD lines being made by CMC using Mitsubishi Chemical dyes. The search function is working for me now, but if I find that thread, I'll post it.

The Verbatim Digital Vinyl CD-Rs are made by Mitsubishi Chemical as the recording dye on that media is the Azo dye that can't be recorded above 12X (at least with any Lite-On clone). However, they're excellent for the DiscT@2 feature on my Yamaha CRW-F1. :)

$24.99 is not that bad for 100 DataLifePlus CD-Rs considering that Verbatim blank CD-Rs are hardly ever offered with incentives (read: rebates) (the blank DVD media is a different story). But compared to the Fuji, Maxell, Memorex, and Imation deals available at Best Buy, Circuit City, CompUSA, Office Max, Office Depot, Staples, etc....yeah, it's high. :)

The 48X is the first DataLifePlus that burns with few (if any) errors on the TDK VeloCD 4800B (or any high-speed Lite-On clone for that matter). I did read somewhere that Verbatim had Lite-On test and approve the 48X DataLifePlus CD-Rs.
My solution to the Plextor vs. Lite-On debate: Buy 'em both! :)

Maybe he's really Eliminator in disguise!

I remember Eliminator having 3 or 4 burners too.

Target also has 30 packs of the same 48X Super Azo DataLifePlus discs for $10.99, not that bad a price penalty for the smaller pack if you just want to try them. I wonder who makes them? They are made in Taiwan, and I thought that Mitsubishi Chemical's plant was in Malaysia.

Mitsubishi Chemicals has plants all over Asia: Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore. DataLifePlus CD's are made by Mitsubishi; ValuLife CD's are made by CMC.

Damm true, but one of the weirdest things is that every ValueLife I ever had was made by Mitsubishi and not by CMC, I bougth 50 and 100 bulk packs, so maybe is cheaper to sell the same discs as DataLife or ValueLife here than import them.

Does anybody know who made LG 48x media?

I can't prove this, but something tells me LG 48X media is made by CMC.

Didn't Kodak have a plant in Mexico? Could this be the same one since Kodak got out of the CD-R business?

Yes they have, or had.

I still can buy Kodak media at Office Depot and some dealers, but since it can be burned at lower speed I'm not interested. Even faster media are cheaper than those Kodak.

:o

I have some 12X Kodak media, and I can burn it successfully at 32X. Not all Kodak media is low-speed only. :)

Yeah, my 12x and 24x Kodak media can be burned @32x, BUT compared to Verbatim 48x media that I can burn @ 48x and 52x on my LiteOns they are slooooooow, and also pricey.

:D

Well I bought 2 packs of 20 up here @ Staples ($4.99 CDN after rebates { $3.10 US}). I've burned 4 discs today, all @ 52x in Nero without any errors at all. I'm using the Nero regisrty hack to see the actual burn speed, and every disc has been 52x at the end.

I'm very impressed.

Mine are the "made in Mexico" versions too.

Today I bought a 100 discs pack of LG 48X, they are made by Prodisc, made in Taiwan.

I only tested one in my LTR-48125W @48x and shows many errors, tonight I'll test them on my LTR-52246S.

:-?
