I, too, have been stocking up on the TY Fujis, and I've got a lot of Fuji rebates outstanding, too. However, I don't have as many as you, CowboySlim. :wink:

I also bought some of those Prodisc Fujis (just to see if they were any good), and I burned one on my 52327S. The result was quite reasonable. On the other hand, the quality of one burned on my 48125W was terrible!

Yup, and I'm looking forward to reading it, especially because you have several brands of drives that you use in your reviews. :)

Fuji owes me $16, and I won't be buying Fuji products with rebates again.

I got all my rebates back from Fuji also. Lucky me. I was at Best Buy today and saw them on sale again and picked up 3 more spindles. Gotta love that.

This was a tongue-in-cheek assessment of my recently aquired supply as opposed to comment about rebates that I should have received. I expect all of them in the fullness of time.

Expectantly yours,

Oh, I understood that. :D

When I said I didn't have as many rebates, I meant to say in the same way that I hadn't bought quite as many CD-Rs. :wink: Sorry for the confusion.

Are you guys buying one spindle with the rebate and the other spindles without the rebate? Because aren't the rebates limited to one product per household only? :o :wink:

When I see the sales, I'm only buying the maximum number of spindles to which the rebate is applicable (usually 1).

Some of the CompUSA deals have been for three spindles.

Ah, good point. 1 seems to usually be the limit, though.

You were the one that criticized me when I posted a link to TY disks saying that the rebate was great and I said that I wouldnt do it again either.I lied I did it again and now have a few more rebated I hope actually arrive.

Yup, I know. I think that the price before rebates was fairly similar to what you posted as well. Either way, I don't plan on buying any more Fuji products with rebates, or, if I do, I will keep copies!
