Has anyone any experience dealing with Carousel Media? On their website there's a picture of two blokes at a shop counter and directions for finding them (on the A46 near Nailsworth), which is sort-of reassuring....

They've been going for years, dealt with them occasionally along with Double Vision and APR depending on price and who had what in stock.

Which reminds me that at BVE last week, APR were selling 'printable Verbatim -R Blu-ray' - except they weren't printable. I pointed this out on the first morning, but rather naughtily APR left the notice in place, so maybe some people went home thinking they had bought printable Blu-ray when they hadn't.

I suppose from the product code they are Ritek, in which case I wonder how long they will last if they do burn, will they fade away?? If so how long before they do??

questions, questions, questions... maybe I will just pay up and stick with Verbatim.

hi ray,

I just looked at the fifteen blu-rays I bought from apr last week.

I specifically asked him if they were printable and he assured me they were. It was one of the specific things I wanted to get at the show.

Apr will be getting a call in the morning.

APR now have Traxdata ink-jet printable BluRay discs @ £28.55 for 10. We're getting near the point where BluRay is do-able. Does anyone have any experience of Ritek or Traxdata BluRay discs? I've used their DVD-R discs for several years and they've been quite reliable. On the other hand, TDK and Verbatim BluRay discs are still around £5.50 - £6. Are people still prepared to pay the extra, and if so, why?

TIA
