The media is made by Ricoh and the code is "RICOHJPN R01". I believe that means Ricoh - Japan, I'm not sure what the "R01" stands for.
That Best Buy price is good, but I'd end up paying tax. So, if I'm not in a rush, I'll stick with Amazon. (At least until they raise the price again!)

Yes, I live in California. I just double-checked my order and I did NOT pay any tax. (No shipping either.)
It's interesting that they would have charged you tax. I wonder what they base it on. Maybe where the item is shipped from?
Note: I don't know if it matters, but I also purchased two paperback books in my order.
bought one of these at a local store, and was reasonably satisfied with it. I needed a couple hundred blanks, so I ordered 9 spindles from Amazon, mainly because of the price. BIG MISTAKE! The quality is VERY inconsistent. Two spindles were all good. The other 7 had anywhere from a couple to over 10 bad media. Even the ones that burned fine, were spotty at points. Two burns were approximately 20 mins burn, 20 not, then 20 burn, 20 not! forming concentric circles on the platter. I realise now that a project worth my time, LOTS of time, is worth a few more pennies.
You are not saving anything, because you are likely NOT getting 25 good ones for your money. STAY AWAY unless you really feel lucky you will get the rare fault-free spindle.
This is very low quality media. The quality can even differ from each individual disk, instead of per batch like with most disks. A lot of my burns don't end up having proper quality. Sure, they burn fine, and may even work for the average user, but the quality is very low. I now know why the price was so low. My recomendation is to find some TDK or Verbatim media equivalent, which may have the same Media Code in the ADIP "RICOHJPNR01", but it is of much higher quality. Try to avoid Memorex media as much as you can.
