If these are "made in japan," this is a good price. I can't read the fine print of the circular online but I think it's 19.99 out the door. I'll be going tomorrow morning to check it out.

Ok, went to bestbuy and grabbed a circular. DVD +r and -r 39.99 - 20.00 instant rebate = 19.99. At my store, the dvd -r's were made in taiwan but the dvd +r's were made in japan. You'll find the "made in japan" screened on the dvd's and under the proof of purchase. These are taiyo yudens. Almost forgot. The dvd -r's were tagged as 19.99 but the dvd +r's were not. The +r's did ring up correctly for 19.99.

Great resource.

Thanks, it appears DVD+R would meet my needs.

Just need to archive some stuff off the PC before a reformat.

Data, or video?

For data, you might consider +RW/-RW.

Data and I don't really need rewriteable, most of my core files will remain the same.

Besides I'd like to buy DVD's locally, cheap and TY's Made in Japan. This seems to fit that bill.

Ahh. Was going to suggest the Fuji DVD+RW 5 Pack for $1 (if available in your area).

Damn out of stock locally and on OM.com

That would have been even better. Any other suggestions on cheap < $20 rewriteable DVD media?

Remember, the +r's are the taiyo yudens (made in japan). Those are the ones you wanna get.

OfficeMax B&M is often very reasonable for rewritable DVD media. At my local OfficeMax (we have only one OfficeMax in Nyc since the one in Queens closed last year), it's easier to simply ask one of the sales representatives to check what DVD media they have in stock in their supply room, as most times it is not placed on the shelf. YMMV on your local store, however.

Available at OfficeMax.com (and likely B&M):

Imation 5-Pack DVD+RW - $8.99

Also available at Buy.com:

Verbatim 10pk DVD+RW 4.7GB 4X Branded w/Jewel Case - $9.70 (qualifies for free shipping)

One word of caution - regardless of the price, generally steer clear of Memorex media. Have found it be quite flaky, both in the writing process itself, and significant deterioration over time.
