    So where are they?

    Where's the cheapest place to get em? I'm not exactly downtown, so if you have couple suggestions or just chain stores in general(esp. out markham and beyond way) I'd appreciate it.
    Thanks.

    ps - just the cds by the way, i don't need cases.

    Infonec in markham has spindels of 50 for $24. They're from some SmartBuy company but I've burnt a whole lot of them and never had a bad disc.

    Are you talking about the cds with that have a green and blue finish on them, with some weird looking character dancing around on top?
    I have a whack of those, but I'll be using these cds as promotional things, so I don't really want that ugly ass green shit showing through whatever I put on top...

    That's them. I think you can buy completely blank top CDR's around someplace. They're more expensive though.

    Don't ask me I've bought two packages now and never bother to ask!

    The same thing happened a year or two ago where when you went to the checkout they were ten dollars less then advertised.

    on a side CDR question, are there any specific brands of CDR's that are better for recording sound than others?
    any brands to avoid?
    any recommendations?

    saw em at staples the other day.
    they look cool but the hold only 21 minutes.

    It's a mail-in rebate I believe... you get it when you buy the CD's...

    Bought a stack of generics at a place in Mississauga -
    100 for 49.99. So generic that there are no markings whatsoever on em..........

    They work excellently, too.

    Located at Brittania one light east of Highway 10.

    What do you mean? Does CDR actually deteriorate in quality over time after you've burned them?

    the first few cds i had burned 5-6 years ago are on their death beds

    cds do deteriorate over time

    They can. Heat and Light can damage the surface and in any event CDRs should not be expected to last beyond 100 years.

    But if you're wondering about sound quality then no. Digital is
    digital and if the CD can be read, then the quality should be there.

    Some cheap CDs do have surfaces that tend to peel a bit, making them unreadable.

    No cases!


    what I mean is they're so cheap they don't put them on a spindle they're just in the box on top of cheap other. they work great though and they're rated 24x.
