    DVD disk reccomendations

    ok, when i got me burner i bought 25 blank DVD disks, these are now almost gone and i need some more, Scan want £7 delivery on nother 25 disks where as ebuyer seem cheaper, problem is i got a NEC 2500a and people have complained about compatabilty problems with the mirrowr disks off ebuyer (ritek)...

    anyone recomend reliable (cheap) blanks ??

    ps the 'newegg' advert (at the top of page) gets in the way off searches !

    I got an email from SVP http://blankdiscshop.co.uk/ on an offer of 100 printable discs (based on datawrite red v2 die, which have always worked fine on my pioneer 105), and 100 dvd cases for under £29.99, seems like a bargain to me.

    the ritek go4 dye dvd-r are very good and supposed to be one of the most compatible disks on the market, about 10 pounds for 25 plus 3-4 delivery but well worth it. http://www.ukdvdr.co.uk/

    I've got a 2500a as well, and am currently using Datatwrite Red v3 for £6.74 per 25 from blankdiscshop which work great. They also do various discs using ritek g04 dye.

    ditto - I've got 3 ND2500A's and I prefer the use of the ritek GO4 dye discs from people such as piodata, ritek, and vertabrim and these have no issues at all

    Hope this info helps
