forget about the dye color. U will look funny trying to tell the salesman you want a XXX color dye cdr. Just buy any CDR disk from a reputable vendor like verbatim, sony, 3M, etc, normally come in a pack of 10,25 with jewels. Those sold in a stack of 50 or 100, not so bad either. My personal opinion is
1. By CDR with branded manufacturer, at least 16x above
2. In a stack of 50 or 100, try the black coating which is scratch resistanct. Quite durable. Exellent for backup disk like game disk which you swap alot. Storage for digital image, should be good too. Average in S$0.50 per piece. I am sure you can find value for money CDR in this coming Comex Show in Suntex starting this Thursday till Sunday. Should be a bargain to shop for cdr media. Best time to buy is Sunday when they will slash prices. Thursday's price is the highest.
