I ordered 2 packs of the +Rs. It said out of stock, but will ship when in.

I am about 1/4 way through a 100 pack I bought a little while ago for $25. My burner seems to like them.

After NCIX putting the Verbatim's on sale for 100/$20, and The Source at Circuit City putting the Verbatim 25pks on sale for $4.99 (including free shipping) I wonder how many people still need Verbatim DVDRs? :lol:

20.00 CAD = 16.97 USD not a bad price for 100 brand name DVD-R's

Mine arrived yesterday, any idea who really made them from the media code? I'm assuming Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. In other words, high grade stuff!

Probably they're made by Prodisc... if you post the serial number in the very centre hub of the disc we can tell for sure though :)

for the -R spindle:MAP633KC19025386 4

Is what's printed in ink on the hub part.

There is another one (much harder to read) etched by laser on the underside of the disc. I'd need a magnafying glass at my age to make it out.

I have 3 spindles in total

I think the 1st one is CMC and the others might be prodisc. Not 100% sure. The numbers are very hard to read. The plastic lids for the spindles are different, Spindle 1 has a Blank Rectangle etched in the plastic above the recycling symbol. The other two do not.

Spindle 1 Verbatim 16x +R (bought this one a little while ago $26)

ZD3121-DVR-T47D

Spindle 2 Verbatim 16x +R (just received)

ZD5175-DVR-T47D

Spindle 3 Verbatim 16x +R (just received)

Definitely seems like CMC-made Verbatim is getting harder to find.. I hope Verbatim doesn't go back to crap media after building up such a great reputation. (Prodisc MCC media isn't bad but definitely more variable)

I have a raincheck good for 30 days for 4 spindles of these. Only problem, my S. Alberta store only has Prodisc in stock :( in 100 disc spindles. Has some CMC's in 50's though, so I ended up paying $17.99 per 50 instead of using my raincheck. Anyone want 400 Prodiscs for $80 :evil: ?

I hear that, but I'm not at all hard up for media (I have the bad habit of stockpiling :D ).
