They also had the APC 350VA backup for $19.98 AR, but mine was out already at 10 am--so they ordered one for me and it will be at my house Tuesday and they didn't charge me for shipping!!

They're made in Taiwan--I saw them while I was there, but I still have 2 full spindles and a partial left over from the Teon's on Black Friday. My inlaws ended up buying us some and I bought some (I think they were hinting that they wanted pics of the kids)

Yep, this is Staples' annual anniversary week sale. There are some great deals to be had if anyone's in need of office supplies and the like. --Mark--

I will be going Staples soon. I'm pack 2 packs. That'll last me a long time. Under $9.50 after tax & coupon. :) Hopefully, they'll have soon left.

It makes a big difference, because the Japan made ones are Taiyo Yuden, and then tend to be better quality. They last longer and you get a lot less coasters with them.

Fuji's usually are. I think a lot of time Ritek is, also.

Really? I didn't know that. Is they why the bootleg DVD's from China, and such sometimes don't work as bootleg DVD's from the United States? ... not that I'd buy anything bootleg

No, that's because they are set for a different region code. US and Canada have region code 1, so anything with a region code of anything else will not play on most DVD players or DVD software for your PC.

Unless you have found ways around that...

I had to for movies that I have bought. Movies bought on the local economy here have a different region code.

But the UPS I wanted still hasn't shown up even though it was supposed to be delivered yesterday :( I called again today and they are sending out another one and I just have to refuse whichever one gets here second--according to the person at Staples they are using a delivery company called Velocity--In all of my shopping, I've never heard of Velocity at all!!
