    I've ordered "unbranded" TDKs from Meritline a couple of times in packs of 50. Then TDK announced that people were faking TDK blank DVDRs and they don't ever sell in bulk quantities of 50. So quietly Meritline stopped selling them for a while then switched over to the correct quantities. Now before I get "burned" again, I wanted to know where you guys buy your blank DVDRs in bulk from. I'm seeing some really good prices for "unbranded" Maxells, but after the TDK incident, I'm a bit weary.

    In your head.
    We found a media that met our needs and then we contacted the company directly. (For us FujiFilm) They then gave us a list of venders that they sell to. We contacted them all, and eventually found one that was willing to sell us the DVDs with little mark up. We have gone through a few hundred so far.
    This written, we mostly use TypeI 9.4 Gb cartridge DVDs. But we buy our bulk non-cartridge DVDs the same way, just in smaller quantities.
    We haven’t had any problems with FujiFilm DVDs.
