Verbatim 8X media 3PK at Best Buy.com HOT or NOT?

Postby jpuntel on Wed Jan 14, 2004 4:55 pm

Don't know if this is warm, or hot, or not. This is the first time I've seen 8X media in a mainstream storefront. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp ... d=cat01163
$9.99 for 3pk

Time to hit the local BB. I doubt I'll find them though. BB has cut back on Verbatim media a lot. Too expensive IMO.

nm.. they're on backorder. Probably won't show up locally for another month or so.

We'll probably see them first since thier based here. I often see new products at the BBY store that isn't on thier web site yet.

Too expensive as far as I am concerned.
I last bought Memorex 4X (8X capable, as most here know) for 89
cents a disc (including tax) each after coupon. (125 for ~$110 inc tax)
That was even before some other hot deals appeared in the last few weeks.

Granted they were CMC and I had to exchange them for Ricoh, but it was worth the trouble of driving to the store to exchange them, which I did when I was shopping for something else anyway.
