    I prefer to stick with Panasonic. I buy non cartridge RAM at £4 each, and a cartridge double sided RAM which was £10.

    I use the ones from lynx. Absolutely no problems with them on my E50 or Panny LF-M621 burner. Quick delivery too.

    I much prefer caddy media for durability, and don't see the need to pay a premium for top-brand media when the cheap stuff works just as well.

    Blankdiscshop doesn't seem to have any DVD-Ram. The only thing listed under this section is CD Marker pens.

    I'll probably try the ones from lynx as the Panasonic shop doesn't have any stock anyway.

    Thanks again.

    That is because when they out of stock, they come of the site until they come back in.

    It kind of makes sense but I'm less likely to look back than if they said - we do them but are out of stock.

    Got a pack of 12 bare discs from avland for £45 (£3.75 each) - they were keen to help, the price was acceptable (7monthshop were out of stock), and delivery was as promised so I'm happy. They were more expensive than 7day but 7day had messed me around for a couple of months with a DVD-RAM order (I really don't like that company), and - a minor point I know - the avland discs were in standard cd cases while the 7day ones were slimlines (which I hate).
