Thanks to dbilsborough and their 10p Tesco posting.

I've managed to grab a load of these blank discs for 10p for 3!!

I don't know what the dye code is, will have to wait til I get home later, but a friend of mine uses a lot of these and says that they are fine - got to be worth 3.3p per disc!!!

nice deal i would go for the 100 pack
#2
I bought 50 blank DVD-R from Tesco (own brand) before Christmas for about £8, when they were doing a BOGOF on their 25-packs.

I ended up throwing away the entire lot. After trying to burn around 30 and getting a coaster each and every time, I just couldn't be bothered. I hadn't kept my receipt or the packaging, having just tipped them onto a spindle when I got home.

I've never had consistent problems with any other brand of disks. My DVD-RW is fully up to date in terms of firmware and was more than capable of burning at the right speed. After getting so many failures, I scanned the disks with Disk Checker, which threw up all sorts of surface read errors.

Tesco's own brand DVD-R are without any shadow of doubt the worst blank media I have ever used.

May just have been a bad batch, but beware...

Unfortunately, I have no idea what dye was used on them.

Disc code is AML-002-00. Discs are silver, non printables. Not very good according to http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm but maybe worth a few tests for 10p a pack
#4
i'll check them when I get home!
#5
thanks for that, i use tesco dvd and cd s (blank) and have never had a problem burning any off them, have never had to throw anyaway due to errors etc i would recomend them but then possibly i have been lucky, who knows! i use them on both intermnal and external burners, so a good find i will be down their later, ta :thumbsup:

will vote hote as i feel a great bargain,

From the DigitalFAQ.com page given by Jaffo:

Pathetic garbage media, landfill material, about 0-50% success rate. These discs are pretty much only suited for preventing drink cup rings from forming on a table. Most of the time, these are ready-made coasters. If you can actually get a burner to acknowledge the disc, do not expect much. And if the burn actually succeeds, do not be surprised if a DVD-ROM or player chokes on the disc (read/play errors). Cheap prices, cheap junk quality.

Digitalfaq states made in taiwan - packaging states produced in Hong Kong?

some burners are not as fussy as others about the dye...my LG has yet to produce a coaster and I've tried several brands...also wise to ensure you have the latest firmware.

strange! but could it depend on you pc equipment? and also what programe you are burning on, as i could put hand on heart and say, " i am at present using tesco media and i can not remember the last time i had reading errors!! :)

that must be why i have no problems., ta put my mind at rest, as you said mine burns nearly everything without errors :thumbsup:
#11
wow,thats really cheap is this in every store or just the extra ones
#12
If you use Tesco DVDs then keep them out of sunlight completely! The ones I got discoloured quickly and cannot be read anymore - and they were kept in a reasonably dark area.

I have 2 DVD-RW drives, a Sony and an LG. Both are less than a year old and are fully updated in terms of firmware and are certainly capable of handling the burn-speeds of these DVD-Rs. Even at lower speeds, each and every burn I attempted (on both drives) failed badly.

Tried burning using Nero and CD Burner XP Pro.

Like I said, I've never had a problem with any other media. I really hope that these disks work fine for those who buy them, but I just wanted to let people know that it may turn out to be a false economy.

Just have a bit more common sense than me: hang on to your receipts and any coasters you get! Take them into the store and get a refund.

I agree with you sofiamary. I always use Tesco DVD's and CD's and have also never had a problem - I don't do massive amounts of storage or anything but I've gone through a couple of hundred over the past few years with no hassle!? Got to be worth a go for anyone able to get them! :thumbsup:
#16
My sister text me 5 mins ago to tell me she saw them in Derry, Ireland. Ive told her to get me 10 pks of dvd+r

Ive never had any issues with Tesco discs
#17
burning to media is a minefield anyway....some discs will work on some drives and not on others period! At 10p a go its worth a try and if they dont work you at least you havent got to re-mortgage your house!
#18
I've used these and they burned OK for the most part but got damaged easily and some just randomly didn't work a few weeks later. I'd say they're fine for burning temporary stuff and non important files though.
#19
is it only DVD-R and +R's and no CDs? And if there are, can you 'mix and match' as such?
#20
Also like to add that i too have used plenty of tesco dvds with no problems..
#21
cant find them in the store :(

Tesco do have cd-r in the £1 promotional packs, although they didn't have any in the Chester store, so therefore they couldn't reduce them!

as for mix and match - they're 10p a pack - mix them all you like!!
#23
Even if they dont work too well, 10p for a pack of coasters is still a great price to protect your table!
#24
i got the dvd+r 4 discs for a pound tesco brand last week, they seem to work fine for me all the time. my player and friends, for a £1.00 u cant got wrong to burn something that u just want to pass over to ur freinds for one view, say a film, but i huess if its important i wouldnt recomend these just incase.
#25
I notice that the majority of posts come from PC users.

i've used these 'budget' discs quite a lot with my DVD recorded without any issue.

Bear that in mind.
#26
So, has anyone else managed to get some of these?
#27
I've got loads of them (CDs + DVDs) from the store near work (Wythenshawe).

They also have cable ties and tape measures for 10p too.

I just went to the tesco in dunfermline and got over 300 of em for bout a tenner. They had Millions of em!
#29
Just been to Tesco's in Pollok (glasgow) and there were tons of these as well as all the other 10p bargains!
#30
None in Larkfield, West Malling extra :(
#31
I've just got back in my local tescos in grimsby.They had an aisle full of these 10p items!It was like being in the january sales-people picking up loads of stuff!Spent £7 on stuff including buying 20 packs of DVD+Rs and 10 packs of CD-Rs!

Wonder how many people buying this 10p stuff at tescos today will re-sell it at a car boot sale this weekend........
#32
Tesco Hereford had some, I'll take a gamble at 10p for 3 ! :thumbsup:

DVD-R's only in store, +R's were 50p/pk I think...

Also bought knives & forks 10p for pk 5, useful for work or if you dont want to spoil the good stuff.
#33
I've just burnt a couple of films and backed up 15GB of data for 20p.

No failures so far, but wouldn't stake my life on them lasting past the weekend!
#34
Don't forget to vote HOT and leave REP (Click the scales on the left) for the OP (me) if you like or benefitted from this deal!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
#35
Nope, None in london at all sadly
#36
I've used about 50 Tesco DVDs over the last few months and only buy them when i'm desperate but have had no problems with them at all and as far as I know neither has anyone else.
#37
Looking forward to my early morning Tesco shop tomorrow now.

I've bought these discs before (use them with a Panasonic DVD recorder) and every one has worked fine...used about 40 so far.

I'll be filling my boots as long as you scavenging hounds haven't taken them all.
#38
Any 1 know where in london dey got this offer going ?:?

Hope you've left some for me, i'm off in a minute!!

I've used these before and have generally had no problems, the odd coaster every 20 or 30 discs so can't really grumble:thumbsup:

Went to the Lincoln store on my way home from work and all they had was 5 spoons for 10p and a load of CD-R's (packs of 5) for 50p:-(
#40
Doh! I was about to post this! I just got 30 packs of these, haha, I'm not a fan of Tesco DVD-Rs, but even if I get a few coasters, THREE QUID for NINETY discs, crikey, best deal I've seen in ages.

Btw, got these in Tesco Osterley Park, they had LOADS, and it's in the London area for the dude who was asking
