This seemed like a good place to stick this one..

I have a Plextor 8x combo burner.   Since y'all are experts I'd like to know where you buy your medium grade DVD-+R(w) media online.   I'm not thrilled with the shipping and handling scams abounding.  Someone has had to have found a reputable business.

I don't care to hear positive reviews for newegg, thank you.  I'm done being hurt by them.

Since we don;t know where you are I sugesst just watching the local paper and take advantage of the sales at Stales or Office Depot. Often you can get blanks for almost nothing after the rebates.

I got 20 DVD + R(W) at Office Depot for only $9.99 using a rebate....other places like Best Buy, etc have the same deals off and on. But, when I looked on Ebay I found the same thing for even less than what I paid and on Ebay you will find all brands if you have a brand you want and all price ranges. I heard the best time to "buy" on Ebay is Saturday night, not many people looking. The price on DVD-R is coming down and I got my 20 disc for $9.99 well over a year ago. You should have no problem finding exactly the brand and a good price on Ebay.
I have found that buying from internet websites, that the prices are higher than in stores, so I avoid buying that way. Fuji is a good brand.

The cheapest place anywhere.  Check the user's feedback rating.  If it's above 95%, you can trust them.

if you have not done any DVD burning yet you might want to try the rebate thing. I see them in the Sunday paper every week. Try some cheap brand for experimenting and then get better quality as you go. I just looked on Ebay, and I have not found the brand I had because I am not sure the spelling...hyper"K"thermia or something like that....20 disc for $9.99 can't be beat, and I have seen them on Ebay for only a few dollars for 10...but you got to spell it right to locate it.
