My acquisition of getting my hands on one of these started not too long ago; in fact, this was just recently on the day people like to refer to as (and has been established as a name, of course) "Black Friday". I didn't really need a pack of these since I had about 200+ blank DVDs that are waiting to be written on, but because of the price - that being at $9.99 - I figured there wouldn't be any harm whatsoever in simply spending ten bucks on a product by a considerably reliable company such as HP.
And also, seeing as these were regularly priced at $29.99 - there wasn't any reason for me to not buy these at such a price and also keeping in mind that it doesn't get any better than ten dollars, instead of paying an additional five to seven dollars whenever these go on sale. Of course, this case was the Black Friday case, and so contemplating wasn't really an issue at all.
*Writes up to 16x, although it's common to see that nowadays out of blank DVDs
*I'm almost finished with this fifty-pack, and so far, it hasn't been ONCE whereas a blank DVD from this stack would fail on me
*Uniqueness in different colors among all other packages and formats
*Somehow, when burning the same movie with one of these and a Kodak DVD for back-up purposes with no compressing effects such that it should come out with the quality from that of the original movie, you guessed it - the output with the HP DVD looked as should it be as set whilst the Kodak one experienced audio delays and a little reduction in resolution
*As little of an issue this is, the slight pink blended in with light red isn't really my cup of tea but I'm not really concerned with that as shouldn't anyone be
*I'm one for writing BIG on discs and as you can see (if you have, that is), space is very limited on these but this isn't really much of an issue, again as one should keep in mind that they're bought to actually have those movies watched, or whatever the purpose may be
Overall, if you don't mind the fruityness from HP with all their different colors when it comes to CDs/DVDs as made by them, put these on top of your list when deciding to go out and getting yourself yet another stack!
