I just got a good deal on blank DVD-R media. At Office Depot, starting this Sunday, September 19, you can get "Buy One Get One Free" of Phillips DVD-R 25 pack. One 25-pack is $29.97, and you get the second free; not bad for 50 blank media. Oh yeah, plus 6.5% sales tax in my area of Florida. The product label indicates 1-8x. When I got them home last night two of the blank media burned only at 4x. Does anyone know why this would be so? I have also seen great deals on both Prodisc and Ritek 8x DVD-R media. Was wondering if anyone has had any positive experiences with buying blank media that says it's 8x and DOES, in fact, burn at 8x? Thanks all input is appreciated.
