Hi!

and yes the media is actually rebraded pioneers, if you lay them face down side by side they are exactly the same and both list that they are made in singapore.

I forgot to add that they also have the same numbering scheme around the hub of the disc.

I think Apple is selling them cheaper because they are trying to promote their computers with DVD capabilities.

Mike,

Your pioneer's are very cheap but still only same price as Apple. Do you sell cheap Apple Media? £4.70 UK is price of Apple media which is the same as you're Pioneers. I use FWS for my own personal use at £1.80 but they are not too good on ps2 so I have to use Apple or Pioneer.

Regards

Yes i know this retailer who sells this DVD-r for 1.80 GBP but they aren`t sending to Germany anymore i was very upset about this.
So i have ordered some DVD-R from www.cdrecordable.com has somebody experience with the quality of them?

Where are you ordering from? If in uk then goto apple website and order 11 packs of five. Postage is free on orders over £200 so they work out at £4.70 each. I actually use the 'fws' for myself and apple for others.

Regards

Here it is

Hi Sundancer!

i will write in English so that everynody can read this.
I have ordered mine at www.apple.de, you can call them at a 0800 (FREE!) phone number nad they are very nice you can buy per sending cheque, transfering money or credit card. Credit card is the fastest payment so i have chosen this.

Viele Grüsse

Thanks a lot for the hint.
Guess I'll place my order at the Apple Store, too.
(Hope they don't sell those discs to owners of Apple computers only...)
