Not sure why this is being voted cold? Seems like a great price to me (£1 per tape).

Very Good Price, caution though, only buy these if you have a Panasonic Camcorder otherwise you may clog the heads up on any other type of camcorder, which then can be an expensive repair job!

Mini DV tapes are made either by Sony, Panasonic or TDK.
Sony uses liquid lubricant
Panasonic uses dry lubricant
Panasonic makes tapes for: Fuji, Maxell, JVC, Canon
Sony makes for the rest.
TDK are TDK.

Interesting... I've been using panasonic tapes in my sony for years now - with no problems to date. Hope I'm not speaking too soon!

Before you switch either to or from Sony tapes it's a good idea to clean the heads with a cleaning tape. This stops the different lubricants mixing and fouling the heads. I used to have trouble with head fouling using both panasonic and sony tapes in the same camcorders until I heard this advice.

I learnt my lesson by using non- panasonic tapes in my Panasonic camcorder, took ages to clear the problem in my camera, you learn by mistakes and research on the web shows this is a common problem. It would be nice if manufacturers made it really clear which tapes are recommended for their products and the reasons why that is. Still a very good deal, nice find OP.
