MagicSpin == I/OMagic?

Then its probably an OptoRite. Too bad I/OMagic never sent me my last rebate.

I believe it's +R discs, not -R. -R is this week's special, $4.99 AR.

Are those KHypermedia discs any good? Either - or +? $20 w/o any MIR isn't too bad...

I haven't had any luck with them, while I know a few people that have had good results with them.

I had mixed results with KHypermedia DVD-Rs.
It seemed to depend on the batch (sometimes even on which disc you picked within a batch) and also on the package (for example the 5 pack in jewel cases [at the time, haven't bought them in a while] worked fine, while the 10 pack in a spindle produced coasters 90% of the time.
The 25 packs were better. Since they were only 1X, I gave the remainder (6 -7 discs) away to my brother after I started burning at 8X...

Never tried their +Rs. I usually use Verbatim, TDK and Memorex +Rs.
It has been a while since I used any.
I did try to buy the 25 pack for $4.99 AR last weekend for the heck of it, but they were sold out when I got to the store (late afternoon Sunday).
Burners only:
Pioneer DVR-115D
Pioneer DVR-111D
Plextor PX-716A TLA0304
Plextor PX-716A same TLA

LiteOn 52246S 52X CD-RW
LiteOn 52246S (another)
LiteOn 52327S 52X CD-RW
TDK 40X USB 2.0 CD-RW

I just grabbed 2 MagicSpin 8x for my kids at OM. They are the
Optorite 8x with a MagicSpin label stuck over the original factory label.

Proof of Purchase label: BDVDRW8D UPC: 788069008983

These drives are OK with decent +R media but really suck writing cheap
-R or RW. Can't read most of them in other drives or home units. Almost
as bad as the Optorite 4x units but not as bad.

As for the Khypermedia +R, I haven't burned any yet but Nero says:

Manufacturer: CMC
Code: CMC MAG R01

Hope this is useful to someone.
2 Optorite DD0401
2 Optorite DD0203
Samsung SM-352B
2 Optorite CW5205
2 Liteon 52246S
Asus CRW-5224A
AOpen CRW5224
2 Benq CRW5224P
Yamaha CRW21000E
TEAC CD-W58E
Yamaha CDR 4416S
4 Samsung 16x DVD-ROM
2 BTC 12x DVD-ROM

Damn, I just paid $22 for some HP DVD+R discs because I needed some CMC..

Ian officemax won't allow coupons on items that are on sale now.

Officedepot does the same thing now where they don't let you do it.

Ian yes even online. They take off the item online even though you can still add it in your cart if you have the item number it still says on the bottom of the item in big black bold letters that the item can't be combined with any coupons. :(

Actually nothing is free because you still have to pay tax. The only way to get is free is if you could us a small coupon even the $10 one off $50 one with any of them free after mail in rebate items. Though they won't let you do that anymore on any sale items. Oh well. The good always suffers the bad anyway and I knew it was going to happen anyway. Thats why I have 8 backup plans and its always good to be prepared. I rather be safe than sorry.
