How much longer till $1 or less DL-DVD's

Postby X-Nemesis on Sun Sep 25, 2005 12:18 am

Anyone care to take a legitimate guess?

Right now you can get 15 Memorex 2.4x for $70 at FutureCrap so that's about $4.70 per disc.

$3.50-$4.00 CAD for Ritek, and $5 CAD for Verbatim are going to be a reality very soon.

$1.00 CAD for DVD+RDL is not likely to happen.

They were on clearance at Staples for some reason. A pack of three was $5.50.

Well, I was referring to a consistant price, that didn't require the retailer to sell the product below cost :wink:

Apparently, Verbatim is getting rid of the DVD+R DL 3 packs (which is what someone here or somewhere else mentioned) so Staples had them on clearance for $5.50. The 10 packs will be the new packaging arrangement. BUY.COM had them for $29.95 and allowed people to apply 10% coupons on them, making them $2.69 a disc, which is a sweet price. Not the $1.85 a disc for the Staples clearance, but close and its easier to find at BUY.COM than driving around to all the Staples in the area. :)

My Staples had two 10 packs of DVD+R, one 10 pack of DVD-R, and one 10 pack of DVD+R LightScribe. I bought all the non-LightScribe packages for $2.50 each. 25 cents a disc for Verbatim 16x media is kinda nice.

The buy.com packages are of the new 10-pack spindles and not the 3-pack jewel cases. BTW, newegg.com is now carrying the 10-pack spindles as well. And not to be overdone by buy.com, they are offering it from $30 for a pack of 10 and they'll throw in a customer appreciation gift of a pack of Verbatim SL discs. A pretty good deal that I probably would've gone for if it weren't for the fact that I've already stuffed myself silly courtesy of Staples. ;)

Verbatim lists the media as being 2.4x-6x compatible (although officially rated at 2.4x).

As for pricing... that's TOOOOOOOO high. Give it until Thursday and NCIX will blow that away :wink:

DVD+R DL of the famous (!!??) Bulkpaq label at 3,01 € a piece (+ shipping) sold in 10-spindles.
Annouced MID code: CMC MAG D01

[see towards the end of the page]

Maybe because they are sold by SVP somebody will be interested in a bulkpaq branded media ?
What is your opinion ?

Not me at least as I can buy Verbatim DVD+R DL for about €3.2. I would like to try CMC's DL media though but I won't buy it under any of E-net's brands...

I saw btw that one webshop lists Verbatim 8x DVD+R DL media now for about €5, but not in stock yet of course.

I got a friend on the inside of NCIX :wink: But I don't *KNOW* the price ahead of time, I just have a good idea of what to expect.

But I know that there is a 99% chance of this product going on sale this thursday:

wish they had it on this weeks sale with the 5.99 shipping promo. I'm probably making an order tonight for 50 Taiyo Yuden DVD-R's.

I don't know really. My guess would be 10pk for $50-$55 CAD, but that's a guess.

You can blame Verbatim USA for being slow to stock their product then :wink:

He was talking Canadian $$$ :wink:

Also, I really don't recommend buy Memorex DVD+RDL. It's really crappy media. It works on only a small handful of drives, and not very well.

What kind of prices might we expect once these start to make their way onto the shelves?

well, I think most companies will not be participating in a price war with companies who can't make a good product anyways :wink:

Although Verbatim is currently duking it out with Ritek on the DVD+RDL market at the moment, I'd like to hope they'll stop before it requires them to make a product on the same level as Ritek, to compete on pricing.

I picked up a pack of those Memorex dual layer discs from Futureshop, 15 for $40 Cdn. Burning took 43 minutes and verifying 32 minutes on my 3500A. While my 2500A and 3500A could read them at most 4.5x, I tried them on my 166S with a no-limits firmware. :)

Is the price FS offering now below manufacturing cost?
