Just wondering if there are good places to buy the more popular blank media so many folks here recommend. Thanks.

I've had good experiences with newegg.com and rima.com.

I will order from Meritline as well.. but only if the other two don't have something in stock which sadly is quite often.

of course everyone can only assume that you're in the USA... if you live in Canada, then the two best places are NCIX.com (watch for their weekly sale on Thursdays) and www.blankmedia.ca. I know the people in charge of the blank media products for both stores, and keep close watch to make sure all their stuff is legit :wink:

If you're willing to do a little head work (country of origin, ect.) you can pick up the media cheaply during the Sunday sales.

I do check the adds in Sundays paper but it looks like getting the good stuff at a deal price doesn't happen too often.

That TDK media is only 2X. Can I burn it at higher speeds? Thanks for the help folks.

I went to Circuit City in long Beach, CA and was told they still do not have this item in stock, I talked to the store manager and ask a substitute and he gave me 4 package of 25 DVD+R (TDK8X) for the same price $.20(20 Cents)/Disc, total of 100 for $20. They are CMC E01 and will burn with my NEC 3500 at 12X speed.
