View Full Version : Cheapest 50 pack CD-R?
07-03-2000, 12:50 AM
Those PNY 80minute 700MB cd-rs are great.. The only bad ones I have had were because of cd writer problems. I got a new cd writer and the problems dissapeared.
My fried did have a batch that were bad, but he called PNY and they send him a new pack that had no problems.
I still have half a 50-pack of these, but I think I will go get some more. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
$20 is a good deal even without the rebate. I am on my second 50-pack of these and the first one had a rebate on it and I have recieved that rebate with no problems.. like 4-weeks it took.

Do you know where can I get the cheapest CD-R off the internet or the stores?

if you live in nyc, you can pick up a 50 pack for 15$ at datavision on 40th and 5ave.
it'll save time on shipping.

There is a 50 pack of 80 minute media for $14.99 after mail in rebate in the Best Buy ad this week. The brand is PNY and I can't imagine the quality is too high with a price like that, but, it is 80 min. It's $19.99 - $5 mail in rebate.

Also, Netmarket has a 50 pack spindle of Memorex for $31.81. They give a $10 coupon to new registrants which would make it $21.81. And, I believe they have free shipping (at least they did on the batteries.)
They also have Samsung brand for $30.80, so you could take your pick there.

I have used PNY discs for recording audio and Karaoke discs. They work exceptonally well.I was sceptical of using them before I bought them, but I was very surprised when I slipped them into my player
yeah pny are good... no problem here... not bad @ best buy

TDK 80 mins at buy.com are 13.50 or something, they have a 50 pack of normals for about 27-30.

if the ad at buy.com says 8x but i have a lower speed, will they still work right???
07-15-2000, 09:34 PM
Yes, 8x is the max

It's not a spindle deal, but 51 TDK CD-Rs in Jewel cases is pretty good for about $27 from Staples using their $25 off $50 coupon (that includes CA tax and free shipping).
Plus the TDK are rates up to 12X and they work well for almost all audio CD players.
Ço£o§§ü§ - yeah you can read into it...

Outpost.com has a Kingston 50 cdr spindle(8x, 80 min/700meg) for $16.95 which includes FREE Airborne Express shipping. I ordered it Friday and received it on Saturday. Quite cool!
07-16-2000, 12:05 AM
but are they good???

I've been using the Kingston CD-Rs from Outpost.com, and I haven't run into any problems. I heard that you really only run into problems if you leave them out in the sun too long, and that some CD players won't take them.

this is the best deal, in my opinion. I HATE rebates, especially ones just for a few dollars. 12 hour shipping for free RULES

Does anyone have any good deals on silver/silver CD-Rs? Reason being? I've got a Toshiba SD-6109 DVD player and for some reason I can't make VCDs that can be read with other CD-Rs. If you play a legitimate stamped VCD, it'll work fine. So one day I decided to try a CD-RW disc seeing all the ones I have are silver on the writing side. Lo and behold, it works! So now I want to try silver/silver CD-Rs. Unless someone can verify that their SD-6109 can read other CD-Rs for VCDs (haven't tried CD audio). Maybe I just have a bad machine?

Mine can't read CD-R VCDs either. You have to use CD-RW for VCDs. It plays audio CD-Rs without a problem.

You should have bought a pioneer dvd player. Most of the other brands don't read cdr's. I did a lot of reasearch before I bought my dvd player. I think the only other dvd player on the market today that plays cdr's is the phillips.

so whats the dye color of those PNY ones?..
The PNY's are the typical greenish-gold, which from what I've read suggests "fine but not great" CD-Rs as far as longevity goes.
In another thread (possibly on another forum), someone ran them through CD-Identifier and they were manufactured by CMC with the common Phthalocyanine dye that we find in many cheapies. I'm beginning to worry about these cheaper discs...I really would like all the stuff I've burned to last a while. hrm.

THe color of the PNYs are light greenish ... suprisingly good quality got 'em to work for my PSX backups
07-17-2000, 09:19 AM
anyone have expriences using the PNY ones w/ the dreamcast...? cus i've tried a blue one once.. and it didnt work.. from then on.. i used nothing but silver/silver... and they all worked fine.. but as more and more dc stuff requires 80 mins cd.. my 74 min silver/silver cds are becoming useless...
07-17-2000, 09:20 AM
I just posted a topic this morning, you can get 50 80min cd's from outpost.com shipped for FREE overnight for $14.95
they are item #84219
07-17-2000, 09:23 AM
yeah.. their shipping is really fast.. i emailed them 10 mins after i ordered this morning to cancel.. after finding out they were blue.. they told me the order has already been shipped to the wearhouse.. and i might have to refuse teh package at the door... very impressive speed... almost too impressive.. hehehe..
07-17-2000, 11:00 AM
So far I've used Compusa(8x), Cendyne(12x), PNY(8x), Imation(4x), Kingston(8x), Sony(6x) for my Dreamcast backups and they all work.... I'm beginning to think that it's the burner that makes all the difference(I have an Imation(Plextor) 8x/20x)...
07-17-2000, 11:03 AM
Yeah I talked to some other people and none of them have problems with the DC games on blues. You tried perhaps burning at a slower speed Tachi?
