Got my Verbatims Dual Layers...Price News

Postby jberry on Fri Sep 03, 2004 10:31 am

Well a Staples I weent to here in Canada had them...said they were expecting "tons" of them...thanks to all who offered to send some my way.

Cost was $46.95 for 3....will be run to try out on my 4120b

So what is the price news? Well the Staples manager said that Verbatim here in Canada expected that the 3 pack price should be cut "in half" in 2.5 months...dunno if this is BS or not but could be good news.

I will let you know how burning works out.....also will test on 3 machines with bitset to DVD-ROM

how much space is on these things anyway? -r has 4489 megs...how many megs on this 8.7 gig thing?

46.95 + GST/PST or was that after taxes?
Which Staples was it (Province & City please). It will help others.

That's 46.95 CDN is about $36US for our friends to the south. Not a bad price for 3 DL Verbatim discs.

I'm told CMC DVD+R9 are available at wholesale of $6.50 now... I'm trying to get some in from Taiwan, but it's proving difficult.

Ritek has also already dropped in Price on the wholesale level. Verbatim is very strange since pricing varys quite a bit from supplier to supplier. Someone told me they could be purchased wholesale at <$5 USD already! too bad I don't know where to look if that is the case.

I swear this industry is becoming crazier and crazier all the time! :lol:

Actually, when I joined It was a sunny day :wink:

Heh, it's hard to believe I've really only been in this industry for 3 years, and already things have come so far! So many things have changed, and trying to keep up with every new thing is very difficult! I can only imagine what things will be like in 1 year, yet alone 10 years!
