    Hi,

    I'm in the UK and wondering if there are any retailers that ship free in the UK who sell blank DVD media.....i.e. the good stuff Verbatim and the like?

    Even if they dont ship free, where do you buy yours from if you purchase online?

    Remember im looking for UK retailers.

    Cheers guys

    svp.co.uk is a good place. I got 50 verbatim for £13 at a local computer fair.

    Many places and it depends on how quick I need it.

    Tesco do some decent gold maxell discs whenever I drift past and toys r us also are pretty good. Failing that computer fair or amazon.

    bigpockets.co.uk or svp.co.uk

    Always get a fast delivery. The only reason I use svp more than bigpockets these days is the svp websites likes the AOL web browser better. The bigpockets site runs very slowly for some reason.

    OT: Rima.com ships to the US and has good prices.

    Be careful not to get fake media also. Lots of places sell fake TY discs because they're so popular, and the fakes are usually very low quality (bad burns, errors).

    Walmart. Period. I get Sonys because that's the only brand my local walmart carries that can be burnt at 16x speed.

    There is no WalMart in the UK. They own ASDA, but I don't know if you can get DVDs in there.
    I tend to buy mine in WHSmith, although I don't buy them very often.

    Got my last 50 TDK -R 16x from maplin, for the impressive price of £0.00, instead of £25... Bought a lot of stuff that day and the guy at the checkout got distracted by his supervisor and forgot to scan them [​IMG]

    Verbatim are good discs. In the US, a lot of local retailers carry them, including Best Buy having a sale for $13 for a 50 pack this week.

    I'm buying my media (CD, DVD, VHS) in Media Markt or this kind of shops.
