As many of you know, I live in Madison, Wisconsin. Despite the fact that my town is the home of a Big 10 college, the selection of recordable media, and computer components in general, is pretty limited. All we have is stores like Best Buy, Staples, Office Max, etc. and the best you can expect there is media from Verbatim or Sony.
My wife and I recently took a kid-free trip down to Chicago. Whenever I go down there I stop at Fry's Electronics. If you've never been to one, think of it as Newegg but in brick and mortar form. They have tons of stuff like motherboards, cases, hard drives, etc.
The last time I was down there I was a bit disappointed with their selection of recordable media. They had a lot of semi-generic stuff like Optimum, etc. and even then there wasn't a lot of it. This time around, I was greeted by this:
The selection of DVD media still wasn't great. The Optimum stuff was still hanging around but for the most part it was replaced by Kodak media.
They also had some Ridata media that I hadn't seen before. Anyone know anything about these "Magic Silver" discs?
