Sainsburys Sony DVD-R +R x50 DCD-RW+RWx25 discounted INSTORE by 70% other reductions as well

Found 25th Jan 2013
OK in store it seems they are getting rid of the post Christmas stock to make way for Valentines stock.

I'm going to forget the idea that these items were ever £21.99 in that fantasy supermarket nobody ever sees or that the claimed 70% reduction is realistic. The 50x packs of Sony DVD-R amd +R were reduced to £5.99 a pack at Sheffield Sainsburys (Moor). That is a good price for branded DVD blanks. The DVD-RW+RW x25were reduced by an alleged 70% to £6.79 a pack.

16GB Sandisck SDHC reduced to £7.49.m they also had 8 and 4gb cards.

National or local deal? I'd think you need to check as they are discounted when the store needs space for new product. there are plenty of other items being reduced as well, but its not everything at once. All stores will eventually get round to reducing items, but I am caytious to say they are all doing it now. Good luck if its what you want. I am always surprised how these have risen in price over the last 5 years.

NCIS

Verbatim.


Agreed.

think most if not all Verbatim are made in India now and are pretty poor nowadays in my opinion,

£9.99 for me as well and out of stock. :-(
For those who are interested, these are 4.7 GB.

All my Verbatim DVD-R are Taiwan but my DVD+R printable are India so avoid the DVD+R printable if you want quality.

Also, my Verbatim BD-RE are all Taiwan.

Or read the back of the label. Lots are india and china, some are taiwan - I think the japanese plants shut long ago.
Verb still has a good rep - there dls are still great - but it is no longer so well deserved.

Japanese? Do you mean Singapore?

I've always used Verbatim, Sony and Datawrite (Titanium) but the last tub of 50 Sony's I bought must have been a bad batch as I got a coaster from about 40 of them. I received another tub some months later as a gift and all were fine. It happens.

However, I have very rarely (and I mean this in the sense of the fact I can't remember) having a coaster with a Verbatim disc. Given the choice, I'd go with the Verbatim DVD-R's.

some info here re verbatim discs.

This also depends on the DVD Burner you are using, as some discs do not always work successfully with some Burners, have used both brands with very few isssue's, though do prefer Verbatim, but thats personal..

can honestly say over the years i have never had any trouble with any brand of disc.
all depends on your writer and the software you use..
if i was to go for verbs or sony my personal preference would be verbs purely because they are cheaper..
i use just as a check up
or grab some taiyo yuden
which are the best you can buy!

Store specific

Saw these tonight in my local (Kirkintilloch). Also saw the 4, 8 and 16Gb SDHC cards with 70% off. I think the 16Gb was originally (don't laugh) £25.99. I make that £7.79 just now. Not sure how that compares with what's available elsewhere.

If you read what I wrote I tried to describe what I think was happening. Stores are discounting when they are changing the displays. I wouldnt have seen mine if I hadnt been in the store right at the time he was changing the price. They dont all change at the same time. You either get lucky or you dont. Sorry for people who dont find them discounted. I hate it when you look for a deal as described and dont find it. Thats why I pointed it out in the description.

Oh IMO I would choose verbatim, I think the quality has changed and you have to look at where they were made.

Speculator

They're both made in the same factories using the same dyes - currently Moser Baer in India and CMC in China. Neither is particularly good for archiving important data as the discs degrade very rapidly. I've found many discs unreadable after six months.

If you want to keep your data safe, then buy Taiyo Yuden (made in Japan) or Falcon/FTI (made in UAE).

Possibly the 72nd time I have seen non-existent blank DVD offers at Sainsburys.

I have explained twice now and as honestly as I can why I think they are reduced. If your Sainsburys was selling electrical stock just after Christmas (I think each stopre gets given a set amount) then the reduction applies to surplus stock they havent sold as they are trying to make way for other stock i.e Valentines day displays. If your Sainsburys doesnt sell this stock then there will be nothing to reduce. If you note it has stock but isnt reduced, then theres no harm in asking if and when it will be reduced. I cant give you any more insight than that. Not really a deal worth going out of your way for but if you happen to be there, then worth looking for if thats what you need.

robertjday3 hours, 10 minutes ago #24any idea if these are printable??



The dvdrw that I opened were gold top, dobt think the others are printable i changed the image to the exact packaging I got, I had just taken the one on the sainsburys site.

Why would people think they are recordable blu-ray (BD-R)???

Unless you are thinking of BD5. I've not tried it but has anyone tried burning a bluray onto DVD-R via BD5?

Nope, they still have a Singapore plant making DLs.

They used to make great value dvd-r made in Japan with a Taiyo Yuden dye code.
