Default Why do people use Cheapo dvd media?

sponsored links

 
I don't get it. Why do people buy a new dvd writer then spend 50 cents on inferior media & then wonder why it doesn't write the way they want it to?

The media I use is inexpensive today (didn't used to be) but a true brand name but I have used a couple hundred disks of it & refuse to change it since it works right :-)

Cheap does not always mean bad though.

The Prodisc and Nan-Ya latest 4X dye's are superb and as cheap as chips!

Great for data or video.
