I'm looking to buy blank 4x DVD+R media. Fry's electronics in California has
them for $.50 each if I buy a spindle of 50. Can I do better? Could I get
$.25 each or less if I buy 1,000?

Shop4Tech (http://www.shop4tech.com/) has 50 for $22.50 ($.45 each) with
free domestic ground shipping. The more you buy, the cheaper they are.
100 for $35.00, etc.

We buy all our media there and the service is very fast.

newegg.com has Ritek spindles (the best by far) of 100 for $43 shipped
FedEx. You won't do any better than that.

Can I get a better deal if I buy 1,000?

Nope, they don't work like that. You can buy as many 100 packs as you want,
but they are still $43 each.

25 cents each:
http://store.yahoo.com/meritline/che...lus-r-030.html
and
http://store.yahoo.com/supermediasto...vd-plus-r.html

Lots of other brands at these places also under 50 cents each. Google
is your friend.

i think you can find 500 unit lots @ Pricewatch.com

just try a 25 or 50 pack first, to make sure you like them

The brand of disc, or the stores? I've ordered from Meritline once,
without issue, but others have had some problems with them (wrong item
sent, no support).

I don't use DVD+R discs, so I can't comment on the quality. I've had
good luck with the cheap -R discs, but I also have a very good burner
(IMO more important than media quality) and I burn at 1x or 2x max.
