Anyone deal with them yet ?

I've just ordered 200 TY discs for $28 USD per 100 & 10 dvd +RW discs Ritek.

Total was $105 Canadian. Shipping and taxes included (shipped to a US address to avoid the Canadian tax on cd-r's).

That's damn good by Canadian standards. The TY discs work out to about .35 cents each.

Dealt with them several times now. They're a solid shop. My only complaint is they typically take 24-48 hours to respond to email. If things are urgent, you can always pick up the phone though.

Guess I'll have to try 'em out too...I've always used Meritline when buying media online (well, only twice so far). I've had no problems with them yet (except for the 8x Ritek issue-but that's Riteks fault!)...

Thanks guys.

I read that post about the 8x discs and that's where I saw the link to Rima.

I figure I'm getting this order for just under 1/2 price of what it would cost to buy it up here for (CD-R Levy + shipping + 15% sales taxes included).

But I think you get the point: I'm cheap.

Wow!

I'm impressed with Rima.

I got an e-mail while I was sleeping (came off night shift) so Rima called to confirm details that were in the email.

I then got a seperate email about an hour later with shipping/tracking information.


I'll order from them again!

My brother ordered some DVD-Rs from them a long time ago, when he still burned DVDs.
He was a litte disappointed that the top disc (or discs plural, I can't remember) was/were scuffed on the bottom due to the number of discs not matching with the spindle size - this left the discs to rotate freely...

This may just have been bad luck.
