Cheapest, but reliable CD-R's?

  Mad Boy 11:25 04 Oct 2003

Im looking for some very very cheap, but good quality and reliable blank cd-rs. I always use Verbatim and sometimes TDK. Anyway, i seem to go through a hell of a lot of cd's just for back up and storage purposes more than anything. So im trying to cut back on expensive(ish) cd-r's. Any ideas and where from?

Get all mine from Ebuyer and I think they are flogging them w/o cases for £18/100 at here I've used over a thousand of these cheapies and only had about 4 coasters which were my fault in any case. Pound shops flog the jewel cases, 10 for a squid or you can buy card cases from computer fairs at £3 for a hundred or two.

Oh and they are flogging 100 double jewel cases with the CDs for £10.

safeways are selling 10 Sony with cases for £3.99

cool, thanks Gandalf > but i think that is dear...The £3.99 sounds more for me. Have you tried them morpheus?

The Sony disks cost £39.99 for a 100, Ebuyer..£18/100, am I missing something here? If you use them mainly for backup you will not need the cases.

hi madboy, (the same as madboy33) yes, just got 100 of them, on the 30 i have used previous to this lot, not one bad on among them

ok, what you suggested was good gandalf, i just dont want to spend money along those lines, if you know what i mean

On the whole the one's GANDALF <|:-)> suggested are fine, always takes me a while to work out which way up they go in! Only had a couple of dead discs but that could have been for a number of reasons.
