Your Where to buy DVD media page asked for suggestions for vendors. I highly recommend B&H, we have used them often (photo stuff mostly) and they are very reliable, reasonably priced, carry good quality products, and provide great customer service.

B&H Photo and Video, best place to buy DVD media?
Hi, thanks for writing in with your suggestion. :thumb:

However, I don't really see a lot of good blank DVD media at B&H. :(

They're mostly carrying:
  • No-name junk: Aleratec, HHB, Everfocus, Primera
  • The so-called "archival" gold DVDs that are no more archival than the no-name media: Delkin
  • Re-branded CMC or Ritek (non-oxonol) media, which is not suggested: Fujifilm, Maxell, TDK
  • JVC Taiyo Yuden at inflated prices (compare to Amazon, Supermediastore, Meritline or shop4tech)
B&H is a great store for buying Nikon DSLR cameras, Canon DSLR cameras, Nikkor/Sigma/Canon L lenses, etc.
Same for all the timebase correctors, video cameras, etc.
But not for blank discs, sadly. It's a mix of garbage and overpriced decent blanks. It's not a smart buy.

Over the years I have found that B&H is indeed sightly more expensive than other dealers, especially those online. However, this varies--one should always compare prices before buying. If you happen to live in the area, B&H's large inventory is a plus. It's also a tourist attraction due to a overhead conveyor system that ships products throughout the store.
