yeah. i got a friend in the US who's buying some stuff for me and will soon ship it over.
DVD media prices here is at least twice that in the US.
more actually (lower quality media - not TY at twice or more the price of sales in the US)
example: some media i bought when i got the burner and subsequently returned:
Verbatim 4x DVD+RW 5-pack in jewel cases: 100 shekels = $22 roughly.
Verbatim 4x DVD+R 10-spindle: 80 shekels = $18. that's $1.8 per disc.
Verbatim 4x DVD-R 10-spindle same price.
these are Office Depot (b&m) prices. i don't think Verbatim can be gotten cheaper online, not significantly anyway.
