Haven't they been this for some time now? Check country of origin Japan- best, Taiwan - ok, India best let on shelf.

never worth £17 originally, £8.49 is ok but not going to rush out and buy them. good tip about country of origin though

Yeah, the offer has been on for a while, and has already been posted. I'm on my second pack now, no coasters so far and they burn as fast as my drive can do.

I only go for them because I don't do too many discs, and buying 50 at a time mail order usually gets expensive with postage charges. And I've never planned far enough ahead to buy 100 or 200!!

not bad.... £7.99 @ instore for DVD-R and +R or 3.99 for 25pk giving you the option to mix em up for 7.98! made in taiwan if i remeber right.

thats what they cost at SVP and have done for a very long time, if u buy blank dvds from these places u r being fleeced!

Wish i knew this before i bought some from Play i paid the same sort of price for Sony discs which i never have had any problems with BUT i ordered them on Thursday and until a hour or so ago they'd been stuck at packing status Play seem be very slow at sorting orders out these days....
Anyhow id bought these instead if knew beforehand bit late know i suppose and rant over ...great deal being a instore offer too voted hot :thumbsup:

isn't svp £4.69 for delivery of 50 discs?

I've never bought blank Dvds as I never know whether I should buy Dvd-r or Dvd+r :?

Can someone tell me what the difference is please?

'In 2002 a new format was developed called DVD+R (or "plus" R). Created by a coalition called the DVD+RW Alliance, this format uses a number of improved technologies that, while generally unnoticeable to the end user, make a more reliable technology. One example is the ADIP (ADdress In Pregroove) system of tracking and speed control used by DVD+R being less susceptible to interference and error than the LPP (Land Pre Pit) system used by DVD-R, which makes the ADIP system more accurate at higher speeds. In addition, DVD+R(W) has a more robust error management system than DVD-R(W), allowing for more accurate burning to media independent of the quality of the media.' (wiki)

i generaly buy DVD-R, as they are often a little cheaper and I occasionaly have trouble writing +Rs

Thanks :-D

nice find:thumbsup:

It also depends what your DVD writer can handle, most of the current drives can handle plus or minus disks, but older drives sometimes will only write to plus or minus disks, so its worth checking what your drive can write to before buying.

Add postage charge for 50 disks and Sainsburys is a good find , and you dont have to wait for delivery

If you get the pack of these from Japan, it is Taiyo Yuden 3rd-Gen dye - that is, arguably the best quality dye for DVD's there is. Verbatim also have a really good name for quality, so you will be getting a great set of discs there which are well worth spending the extra 3 or 4 quid on above the cheap crapola from Datarite, Bulkpaq etc.

PS. PCWorld had these ages ago BOGOF @ £13, which was a fantastic price for these.

:whistling: they have the same ones in Poundstrecthers only cheaper!!!

Why not try some of the ones on play.com with the free delivery policy it might be worth it??

Went to the Market Street branch in Huddersfield. Only had the DVD +R which where the ones made in India and i immediately put them back on the shelf. Think i will stick to play.com and get my 100 packs for £17.99 delivered(minus quidco).

any 1 know were i can get cheap Verbatim dual layer discs?

the 1s in poundstretchers u talk about are a pack of 25 for 4 pounds i bought some 2day 4.7gb ones though
