anyone know where to get bd-r discs at least write speeds of 6x and up?

Bluray burners are finally coming down to the price with 12x speeds but the highest speeds I can find for discs are up to 4x only. Which stinks for writing speeds.

I'm thinking of getting a LG or a Pioneer bluray burner after I look at the reviews more. They're only 130 up here for 10x burner and 12x.

We've had Sony BD-R's at Staples for like 4 years now. No one ever buys them. I don't know who used them 4 years ago since almost no one had blu ray burners. But yeah, those one write like max 2x haha.

Funny, I was thinking about making a thread regarding bluray burners. I'm still a little cautious of the media cost. Thought it looks like $1/disc ratio for SL is close.

I can find spindles of blurays for 25 dollars for 15 of them, which isn't bad since altogether they hold more than 100 dvds altogether just about. and you can find 100 dvds for like 20 bucks.

But like I said before they're only like 2x speeds

Yeah I did the math and 15 blurays (25) are about 88 DVDs(4.5). I wanna get a burner.

The only place online I know that sells BD-R 6x is this place, although its still pricey at this moment in time:

1 BD-R 6X=$8.00 US; 5 pack=$7.00/each; 50 pack=$5.40/each.

I think in china they have 8x times discs, but I haven't found any yet. If anything, I want at least 4x disc speeds since that's what the PS3 runs at.

Exactly how many BD-R do you plan on using for what you currently want to do? If its not much, I'd grab the 6x discs to cut down on time. I'm considering getting a BD burner as well to unload some of the blu-ray anime on my PC.

basically I want to reburn all my dvds I made and put them on bluray, it's mostly to cut down on space, I have well over 300 dvds with data about a quarter of them are DL, so I want to back them up on bluray also and store the dvds elsewhere. So with bluray, it will cut it down by over 3/4s.

I did the same when I was burning CD-Rs to DVD-R I had a dvd burner when they first came out, OH GOD were they ever slow! 400 bucks wasted on it, and that was even wholesale price. I didn't buy a new one till I found them for 69.99 at 16x speed, I was like HOLY SHIT that's fast, 4 mins to burn a dvd-r compared to 1 hour and up with my old drive that I DESTROYED! I blew it up with firecrackers! DIEEEEEEEEEEEE!
