BEWARE!!! This is a terrible online retailer....

One of their marketing strategies is to post messages on websites such as this posing as their own customers.... DO NOT TRUST ANY MERCHANT WHO USES DECEPTION AS A SALES TOOL!!!

when someone joins a forum and their 1st and only post is about a "special" deal from a place you havent heard of then I automatically presume it to be a very BAD deal.

hehe, classic!

I know exactly the kind of discs you can expect from this.... I may even know who supplied them to the online store :wink:

You get what you pay for, keep that in mind! :roll:

Maybe there should be a list of online stores that do this, so that people can make it a point to boycott them :wink:

Poor quality 2x DVD-R for $0.49 sounds not so cheap anyway. Most 4x media usually cost about that in mass quantity and sometimes also in retail.
