That's in the boonies of WI. I can't imagine a big city like Sacremento wouldn't have it.

Otherwise order it online and do a local pickup.

With the Kerry signs everywhere, you'd think they would. Unfortunately, when you get outside of the cities, there are a lot of Bush supporters.

I would try various Circuit City's. That's where I got some Verbatim 16X +R's. When I did though, they had only one other 25 pack spindle left, so I'd try more than one if you have that option.

BestBuy has Fuji 8x 25pk spindle for $15,they should burn at 8-16x depending on your burner(look for:"Made In Japan").
BTW...what's with those nuclear-free frogs in Davis?Everytime I drive-by on I-80 I laugh.

Nuclear Free frogs? NO idea what you're talking about, i only look for CHP when im on i-80.

I found some Verbatim 16x at Best buy In Elk Grove. NOw could soembody tell me what tests to run on them? I have the px-716 and i want to see if it's worth keeping.

I just ran the BUrst Test at MIddle Accuracy and i had .22 PIE with a max of 110 and .05 POE with a max of 145, no POF.

IS that decent?
