    There is still an alive deal for $4 less. The only difference being that they are not "metalize". I don't think being shiny is worth $4 more.

    Come on...... , I saw that deal , this one is printable --its not the same

    Makes a diff if you want to customize the top

    the regular ones have the brand name etched on top , making it non-customizable

    Yes, but my understanding is that you also have to have the specialized printer in order to utilize the customization feature.

    Example: http://www.google.com/products.....0139797083

    Besides I can customize my own without either, I just use a black sharpie marker.

      You heard of lightscribe ? many Desktop + laptop systems offer it these days - It can customize your CD top to what you want .
      here is more on it
      http://www.lightscribe.com/pro.....aspx?id=89

      + many printers (inkjet) are able to customize the top of those discs .

      here is a DVD writer which can customize it
      http://www.shopping.hp.com/web.....57928357-2

      Here is a printer
      http://www.shopping.hp.com/sto.....2097883233

      look at the picture on the page

      These are readily available hardware(s) with which you can customize your disc

      but

      you need a shiny top disc for all that

      not a regular one

      Actually LightScribe is not the same thing as a printer, it uses the laser on the device to actually burn/etch an image into the surface of the disc. LightScribe also requires special discs to be bought that allow for that feature to be used, and they are more expensive. (Although I'll admit it is a really cool technology, as it allows for shades of gray to be etched and is far more permanent.) But its definitely not the same thing as printing on the surface of a disc.

    Well FYI

    Yes these are the ones which you can use for printing on the media itself by using a specialized printers ( some of them are listed on the posts today , check them out , more and more printers are able to print directly on CDs)

    You can customize it to create just the look as you get in stores .

    The regular discs , you cannot print on them ( this has a shiny top ) hence these different from them .

    Please understand before marking a deal down rather than just being ignorant and giving reasons like being able to use a sharpie marker .

    For that matter , why do we need a lot of things on this deal website , we can do with many alternatives , can't we?

    Why need a tent , put a tarp with 4 poles , it's possible , is it not ?

    Was that a valid reason , being able to use a sharpie marker for marking this deal down ?

    And these discs are meant for those printers , its understood . You posting deals about SDHC cards , it is understood they are meant for SDHC compatible devices .

    Thats the reason I meantioned Shiny top Metalize hub in the heading itself

    It's ok if you really felt that the deal was a bad price , or the product itself is bad ,but using a sharpie

    If you look at your 512 MB video card deal , there is an OEM version which is for $20 less , both posted today , is anyone marking it down . They should right , both are virtually the same , are they not ? Both are same specs , same manufacturer , same speed , performance , it's the same card . not sure if people understand . It's just different packaging probably , more similar than your comparison above here

    Please try and read them before you mark anything down . If not , please clarify , helps .

    Thanks

      By the way, the bit about the "sharpie" was more of joke.

    If am being contradictory to something ( I know you will dig out something ) I did not mean to be . Just want to post deals and that's it ...

    do not want to have a war of words ( and break records )

      What I was getting at, even though I did not outright say it, is that the requirement of the printer is a bit of a hefty investment to use the customizable feature.

      I imagine that many people, (A) don't want to make that investment, (B) are just looking for CDs to store various forms of data.

      Granted it is possible that someone who produces their own music, or likes to get really fancy while sending bulk pictures to family might make use of these, but that still means investment in the printer device itself.

      There is no war here, I just disagree when all the factors are considered.

      These are accessories and everyone understands that . It's not that we first buy the discs and then we decided which printer to buy .

      Then for the video card you posted today , we would really need to invest a lot , dont we ? I mean we have to buy a motherboard , a case, the whole computer ....list goes on

    The requirements are usually the other way around.

    For a disc writer , we have requirements saying what kind of media is compatible on them .....not usually the other way around .

    Please try and understand , it's not because of the discs that you have to buy a printer . You would already have a printer if you were going to buy these .

    You would not be buying writeable DVDs if you did not have a DVD drive , would you?

    Oberon, you are missing one more difference, these are Phillips brand. The ones you linked are of questionable origin. I burn a lot of DVD and the brand name can make a lot of difference

      I've never had an issue with the off-brands, but I suppose all things are possible.
