Should we make this a blank DVD/CDR bargain thread?    

Best Buy has 50 packs of Fuji DVD-R/+R $19.99 and 100 packs of Fuji DVD-R/+R for $39.99.  That is the up front price after instant rebates, and there are no mail-in rebates.

Those are real good deals, on a great DVD brand.

Buy 2 50 packs and save a penny over the 1 100 pack!

In my area, the 50-packs of Fuji at BB are TY but the 100s are not.  Check your labels before you buy.

This opportune physical form
Is worth more than a wish-granting gem.
You only gain its like the once.
So hard to get, so easily destroyed,
It's like a lightning bolt in the sky.

Contemplate this, and you will realize
All worldly actions are but winnowed chaff,
And night and day you must
Extract some essence from your life.
I, the yogi, practiced this way;
You, wanting liberation, do the same!

- Lord Tsongkhapa, King of the Dharma

Some are...some aren't.  Depends on if you get a pos out of the box.  I have a 250GB and been using it for about the last year or so.  Never had a bit of trouble out of it.  My experience with Maxtor is that the drives are hit and miss.  They either break quick or don't break at all.

This 250 that i'm using now was in my computer for about 6 months before I stored anything on it that I couldn't afford to lose.  Keyword: Backup :-D

yes, but it's hard to keep a valid backup of nearly a terabyte of data, which is what i'm up to for my computer.  Maxtor warranties are only 1 year, whereas WD or Hitachi/IBM are at least 3-5 years.  I'd rather pay more for that peace of mind - and i've had to have 2 HDs replaced from each of those companies about 3 or 4 years after purchasing them, without any hassle whatsoever.  a bad Maxtor after 13 months of use is a paperweight.

I only buy Seagate HDs - they have a 7 year warranty, I've replaced several with them too, it's quite easy.

I concur.

yes, but it's hard to keep a valid backup of nearly a terabyte of data, which is what i'm up to for my computer.   

Does that 1TB change every day?  I've got exactly 225 DVD+R's filled with shows.  If you're editing 1TB a day, I'd like to know what you're doing.  You must be VERY busy! :-D

no, my 1 TB is relatively static - it's finding time to burn the 200 DVDs that i have a problem with.  i'm more inclined to backup to HDs these days to be honest with you...
