I needed a few CD-R discs to backup some important data, like photos, PowerPoint presentations, and other files that were taking to much space in my 80 GB hard drive. I was so sure that 5 discs of 700 MB each were enough for all the files, I was wrong. And the worst mistake was to buy a 5 pack; I end up paying 40¢ for each discs, this is too much.
The overall performances of the Maxell discs are good, there is no problem with that, the real problem is with the price I paid, WOW! Only $2.00, what a great catch. You can get a better deal if you purchase a 50 or 100 pack where you get each disc for about 15 to 20 cents each, or less if you get them on sale.
I am happy with the Maxell Color CD-R disc, but next time I want to get a 50 or a 100 pack to get them at a lower price each. This is what always happens when you are on hurry and take the first thing that you found. You will end up paying more when you buy like this. I learned my lesson.
