Could we also have some explanations
about single sided DVD-RAM's of 4,7 GB without cartridge ?
Hrm, what do you want to know?
Single Sided DVD-RAM without cartridge gives you more options. The same 3 big players basically though.
Maxell, Verbatim, and AcroCircle/Optodisc.
Maxell sells 3x and 5x DVD-RAM in single sided non cartridge variety (unless you live in Japan, then you can also get 12x DVD-RAM2).
I believe Verbatim has single sided DVD-RAM in a jewel case as well, but only 3x for the moment. I checked with them today however, and 5x is finally on the way.
AcroCircle/Optodisc makes both 3x and 5x DVD-RAM in single sided non-cartridge... but for some reason they only sell 3x. Some of my friends and I believe Optodisc might be contractually obligated to only product 5x DVD-RAM for Maxell, but it's remarkably hard to nail either company down on this. Although we do have this:
sorry for the lack of part numbers... I keep all that info at my desk at work.
As for where to buy all of the above, I recommend sticking with the Maxell DVD-RAM. Both NCIX and Blankmedia carry it, and they have a pretty good price on the 5x. And interestingly enough, Maxell DVD-RAM prices tend to be the cheapest of the above 3 (lending more credability to my belief that Optodisc is making them).
