Verbatim rock my world.
Not had a coaster yet.

Just looked online and they are cheaper - 100 discs for £9.99

Do you mean CD-R ?
I can't find any DVD-R 100 spindles.

Yeah, my mistake

Great price for a great product

is this nationwide? if so im going to pop into my local sainsburus in london. what verbatims are these, india or taiwan?

edit i found the online link so it must be nationwide sainsburys.co.uk/sol…717sainsburys.co.uk/sol…717

Good deal

Tesco also had some good offers on cds and dvds

Cant remember fully but the Sony CD-R pack of 30 was half price or less

I've been thinking of getting an external hard drive lately but when quality blank DVD media are this economical and secure it's hard to justify the little bit of extra convenience they offer (especially against the downside of eventual drive failure). Over 200GB of storage for £7.49 straight off the shelf, no ordering or collecting from the sorting office. Nice. Thanks, OP.

Are these the printable version? It looks like the correct packaging

I take it they didn't have any DLs then?

Verbatim dvd-r made in taiwan, japan or singapore very good.
Verbatim dvd-r made in india OK but not really they same and probably not better than than the cheap maxell at play.com but still a good price from a store.

You're much safer putting anything on a disc.
Had 2 x IBM Deskstars used as external drives go unuseable on me recently.
Not even detected in bios as internal drive now :-(

Verbatim are quality, as are Taiyo Yuden.

Yeah Im sure they are, I didn't buy any as only took out pocket cash, and its not stopped raining since

never seen printables in my local sans berries

Shame "Country of origin: India"...

quality wise best would be Japan, then Singapore (but they rarely manufacture there now), then Taiwan, then India.

anyone know where to get some cheap Jpn ones?

Better than Poundstrechers by 50p, £7.99 is the normal price. Half price no chance.

Not a bad price but not great either.

Staples/PC World/Currys will probably be doing their 12.99 for 100 offer (BOGOF) offer again soon.

I stocked up last time:

the one's with the orange packaging as in the pic in the OP are usually non-printable and manufactured in india.

They may have more than just India ones. when they've had the half price offer on before, I've rooted around the shelves and found a mix of boxes (generally India, Japan and Taiwan....but never any Singapore!). All come in the same packaging.

It is no longer the Indian ones that are not up to standard .. The orange ones from China [43548] are very poor the Indian ones are now stunning in comparison and scan at 93% and higher and within spec.

That is pretty good for India discs, but I normally get 97% and higher with Verbs that are Japan/Taiwan (although have not bought a batch for a few months)

The Verbatim branded Taiyo Yuden's come in a visibly different tub. It has a ribbed bottom. For your pleasure, I'm sure.

Forget abstract 'Quality ratings'. It's the PI and PIF values that matter and they are good on these Taiwanese Mitsubishi disks.

This is generally what I'd expect to pay for 50 blank DVDs.

laze

Staples are also doing 25 Verbatim CD-R's for £3, which is even better than half price

http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/3977/verbatim.jpg

They were still selling the packs of 50 for £12.71

I've had a few failures with the Indian disks it has to be said, but good price.
