good price but the rrp of £20 is a joke. SVP do great disks for £5.99 (+99p P&P on offer weekends).

They've been available for £8.66 for sometime in the Play ]3for2 deal posted months ago. I like these disks - record well on all my gear.

If 3for2 at £8.99 then surely three should cost £17.98 and not £25.98 i.e. £6 each???

these are the same price in tesco, 25 for 8.49 BOGOFie 50 for 8.49, they also do 4 unbranded for £1

Don't be fooled by the Sony brand name (if anyone still holds value in that brand name), the discs will have been manufactured on the cheap by some no-name maker and then bulk-bought and branded.

Thats what I was going to say, its not the brand its the dye they use, i.e Verbatim have Taiyo Yuden dye in the made in Japan discs, but if you get the made in India ones stay clear as they regularly fail burns.

i think no company can beat sony. no matter what product they make, it is good.

its a shame there not £4.99! would have got some then

thats how much other companies are charging for other brands, but not sony..

yes well done for saying these are fake products. i doubt so

anybody received these in the past few days and willing to post the media code?

I think they used to be SONY16D1 which are actually very good discs - almost as good as TY/MCC discs.

If they are still the same, and are available on 3-for-2 then thats an excellent price, £18 for 150 discs. Unfortunately, if I add 3 packs to my basket it comes up as £25.98 and not £17.98 - it's removing 99p rather than £8.99.

Nobody claimed they were fake - most manufacturers (including sony) buy discs from CMC/Ritek/Moser Baer India and brand them with their own company logo. The brand on the front of a disc means nothing - the dye type (as determined from the MID) is what is important.

Yeah, until the 1980's. The output from sony has been terrible for years, and it's become even worse since the entertainments division has taken over important decisions due to its profitability.

Voted hot :thumbsup: i bought these a few times from play and have 25 discs remaining in pack i have atm but at £9 i cant resist buying some more with being so cheap even though i dont need them as there a bargain and ive had no coasters from discs burnt that i've used previously

Sony - Hot

Q1 y doesn't 3 for 2 work ??
Q2 where can u get them at 4.99 ?
Q3 y quote deals on here if they don't actually work or exist ???

I said nothing of the sort.

I said that, like many Sony products these days, these won't have been made by Sony, but will have been bulk-bought by Sony and then branded as a Sony product. I was merely pointing out that if you're buying them based on Sony's brand name, then you'd be making a mistake as they'll be exactly the same as other discs manufactured at the same plant.

Same goes for lots of Sony products. Sony's DVD-ROM/DVD-RW drives are made by Lite-On, and are identical to Lite-On drives, only more expensive.

I wouldn't say that all of Sony's products are terrible, though some are. They have definitely moved from the high end of the consumer level of the market into the mid-to-lower end. There isn't a single product that I buy where a Sony product would be my first choice, except perhaps a Sony Ericsson phone (in certain cases), but that's really an Ericsson product, not a Sony one...

Anyone have a commet on TDK discs?

No body makes their own DVD's anymore to expensive, oh except JVC who have their own plants and are the worst quality disc's ever, sold around 50 packs and about 25 back they dont work on anything, DOH!!

Sony one's are badged and this price is hot! I buy then from Sony for £8 and sell them for £14.99, people will buy them for that price for the name, they do use two main factories though both in China I believe, never really had any problems with them as far as I know.

sony tellys are the best

every body nows that

try mentioning it to play so they sort it out then :whistling:

personally i wont touch any dvd-rs without the g5 or g4 dye

I assume you are talking about the ritek g05 dye? The notoriously bad g05 dye. The g05 dye that even at it's very best is still only a 2nd Tier quality disc.

G04 was quite good for a cheap disc (but nothing compared to TY/MCC), the G05 ranges from terrible to OK.

Great price, just ordered some...Thanks

Excuse me ???? I hink it was you that was stating that the 3 for 2 deal made it an even better deal for YOU !!

However as i tried to point out if the 3 for 2 deal doeasn't actually work then it seems a bit silly to quote it as a deal. You may as well say "using the debenhams 20% discount codes will make the price £7.19" or any companies codes on play because they won't work !!!

Are they full face printable?

anyone had any response from play about the 3for2 offer not working? They don't have a email address listed so I filled in their "technical fault" form and haven't had a response yet.

Sorry I didn't make it clear before when I mentioned the ]3 for 2 deal - I don't think Play intend for the deal to still be available - it was originally an offer well before Christmas when the DVD + and - Rs were £12.99 for 50. All you can do now is shave a few more pence off the price of the DVD + and - Rs - but if you want the thermal printable you can get those at the same £25.98 for 3 packs.

Ah, that would explain it.. =] I thought with the 3for2 graphic banner being on the page that it was still active.

I'm actually after some thermal printable cd-r, anyone know the advinfo for them (dye type and manufacturer)?

tia
