i've seen 25 packs of Memorex for $30 or so at CompUSA/Staples/OfficeDepot lately.  price fluctuates, but i like the quality of them.  i'm sure there are better deals online though, i just haven't checked in a while since i don't burn much DL.

 Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM 
$139.99 FREE SHIPPING

I don't know what DVD-DL's normally cost but the prices seem to be reasonable on here for decent quality ones too.

The 1TB drives are out! Not exactly a bargain, but still, it's pretty sweet:

Also, found this deal on Dual Layer DVDs. A 25-pack for $33 with free shipping. Like Tet, above, I've had real good luck with the Memorex discs in my burner. I'll use them instead of DVD5's when I can find 'em cheap enough since I'll have to worry about half as many physical discs in the archive...

You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

Seemed like a good place to share this:
woot.com is doing a woot-off today.
instead of their regular, one-product per day thing, they are selling small quantities of products until the sell out and then they throw out another product.

Right now it's a 1gb SanDisk mp3 player for $12.99.

i grabbed the 2-way radios they had at like 1:15am, just $15 and we send them to clients with families.  this is a 50% savings over what we normally pay for each pair of Moto radios (that are probably better anyway), so i bought 3.  (+1 K from our accountant!) :banana:

I've got the 2 gig model and its been very reliable.  Still plays the same as the day I bought it despite 2 summers in my pocket lawn mowing 10-12 hours a day.

So, I'm guessing the battery life is pretty good then?  10-12 hours a day is some heavy usage.  This is a bit nit-picky, but I am getting tired of running with my 60 gig video ipod on my arm.  This little guy may be just what the doctor ordered!

Yeah, battery life is good on those small players.
I have a 1GB Creative that gets about 12-13hours on 1 AAA battery.

Thanks for the heads up RJ, I got one coming my way.  I just got enough time to pull the trigger.  I figured what the heck, why not?

I usually got almost 2 full days of mowing in on one AAA.  I could have got more time in but I did two things to drain battery life:

1.  I bumped up the amount of time until auto shut off so that if I was in the middle of a good jam, and I had to travel to another lawn, I wouldn't have to start from the beginning (and my time was set to 20min). 

2.  Even though I had noise canceling headphones, I still had to pump up the volume a little bit.

Louder volume = less battery life?

Interesting...

I am still not sold on these MP3 players... But I do feel an iPod is not the best buy, they just have an unbelievable marketing team there at Apple.
