If thats the case and concern, then i suppose you could go for the Maxell DVD-R 100pk Spindle thats going for £15.49, but works out to less then a tenner.

15.49 X 2 = 30.98 - 4% quidco = £29.74 for 300 or £9.91 for 100

this is a good deal. i was waiting on svp to have another 99p shipping weekend before ordering but this seems to be a much better deal. i'll not need to order discs for ages now. i've used maxell discs before and they weren't bad, i think the packaging was **** though, so transferring to old spare tubs might be the best way

Smoking hot deal however a word of advice, never include Quidco in your deal price, it is never guaranteed.

Some people buy depending on their burners, since some favour one over the other. To understand them both, you need to know abit about their history.

DVD-R (pronounced "DVD dash R") and DVD+R (pronounced "DVD plus R") are nearly identical formats. The discs look the same and are both supported by most DVD-ROM drives and DVD burners. The only difference between the formats is the way they determine the location of the laser beam on the disc. DVD-R discs use tiny marks along the grooves in the discs, called land prepits, to determine the laser position. DVD+R discs do not have land prepits, but instead measure the "wobble frequency" as the laser moves toward the outside of the disc.

The DVD-R format was developed by Pioneer and was released in the second half of 1997. DVD+R was developed by Sony and Philips and was introduced in 2002. Companies that support DVD-R include Pioneer, Toshiba, Hitachi, and Panasonic, while companies that support DVD+R include Sony, Philips, Hewlett-Packard, Ricoh, and Yamaha.

However, most of these companies now develop hybrid DVD drives that support both DVD-R and DVD+R formats. They are known as DVD?R or DVD?RW drives. When looking for media for your DVD drive, make sure it ends in "-R" if you have a DVD-R drive or "+R" if you have a DVD+R drive. If you have a DVD?R drive, you can use either format. DVD-R is still more popular than DVD+R, but since they are both widely supported, it should not matter which format you choose.



DVD-R and DVD+R are two competing technologies that use different formats. No single company owns either DVD format and both technologies have their advantages. DVD-R/RW was developed by Pioneer. Based on CD-RW technology, it uses a similar pitch of the helix, mark length of the 'burn' for data, and rotation control. DVD-R/RW is supported by the DVD Forum, an industry-wide group of hardware and software developers, and computer peripheral manufacturers. The DVD-R format has been standardized in ECMA-279 by the Forum, but this is a private standard, not an 'industry' ISO standard like the CD-R/RW Red Book or Orange Book standard.

DVD+R/RW is also based on CD-RW technology. DVD+R/RW is supported by Sony, Philips, HP, Dell, Ricoh,Yamaha, and others, and has recently been endorsed by Microsoft. DVD+R/RW is not supported by the DVD Forum, but the Forum has no power to set industry standards, so it becomes a market-driven issue.

Hope this helps.

Great post, although i've readed word for word somewhere else before :thinking: Rep added, i would have gone for this had i not ordered just 1 pack last week, if i get these i reckon dvds will be obsolete before i finish them :?

great thankya but im afraid the voucher doesnt work unless ya spend £50, good deal tho still thanks

"askslim | 28/06/2008 | See all askslim's reviews (1) »
So far used about 60 discs on a Philips recorder. @ 4 hours per disc. No problems"

is this kev burning them at 1x? wot a muppet.
i think you should visit svp and read the reviews these are poor quality and score only a 7 and good consistent brand will score 9-10 and be reliable.

Lol, i did some reasearch on it when the question was asked and copied the information that was most coherant and accurate. I did not write that out myself and thats how youve read it somewhere before lol. I know what you mean about having so many discs, it would be great if you could split the cost and quantity with someone. Thanks for the rep, some returned back

Hey....yeah, you need to spend £50 to get the voucher to work, but thats not part of the calculations. If it was then the discs would work out even cheaper.

These disks are really good and have a low failure rate. I dont know about reviews or anything but everyone that i know that has used or experienced maxells dvd's have not had a bad thing to say about them. Also, i have no idea about the character aboves comment. I read it on the website and thought, either he has made a typo or he is incredibly stupid. You pick

I posted the same deal for CD-Rs on Friday, which I think is actually better because they tend to be more expensive than DVD-Rs, but it was voted out of existence. Why?

Not true mate, they were 10.99 for the -r's and 11.99 for the +r's on offer for just a while. They were more or less the same price before the offer as they are now, and u cant expect them to be running 2 offers at the same time, they are a business afterall. The rrp is £19.99 so at 12.99 its still a decent price.

Cd's are generally the same price as dvds, if not cheaper. I guess people almost always would go for dvds over cds because of the greater storage factor. Cd's only have the edge over dvd's in cases where you want to burn audio cd's to play in cd players, but most understand the benefits of MP3's and aux output for such devices that cd's will in sometime become obsolete or impractical. Just my thought.

Are the top sides of the Maxell DVD-Rs a gold colour or white?

Also would like to know about the face of these disks - is it ok for writing in with cd pen?

The +R discs have gone up this morning from £12.99 per pack to £17.99 per pack!

Are these going to be good for archiving? I need discs to store photos on for decades, rather than a year or 2 ;o)

Thanks for your thought. I guess the scoring reflects the obligatory computer literacy of readers of this forum who only think of these discs as data storage. What they are missing is that far more people have CD players than computers or even MP3 players, so if you are wanting to distribute audio material that nearly everyone can play, a CD is what you use. I would be interested to know where you can buy CD blanks cheaper than DVD blanks though, because in my experience they really aren't cheaper at all.

The forum rules state the obvious - don't vote a deal cold just because you're not interested in it. You vote it cold because it is not good value for money. I now understand how people feel when they post a deal and then so often ask why it's being voted cold. I sometimes wonder whether voting is too easy!
