    Very difficult to write on

    Okay- avid music collector- was preparing to record to disc a load of live concerts- thought it would be cool to have them on these vinyl looking discs. I ordered 2x50 pack spindles as the prices was unbelievable. Post online order I got inpatient- and started to wonder in looking at the online pics of the product if I'd be able to label these per my usual method via sharpie- band name at the top- location at the bottom, date on the left side and what disc # for the 2 cd show on the right portion of the cd. I went to BB and got a 10 pack of the same as my 100 had not arrived. Got home and realized that there is virtually no space to write. Not only that- but the material is a glossy texture such that a very fine marker will not take. They look cool- yes, however you sacrifice look for function. They appear to record just as any disc- but there is simply no room for folks like me who are archiving and need more than just a line or two to describe the contents. I think the same brand with the inkjet printable surface would be okay- but there is still little room as it is taken up by the decorative vinyl. I have seen some reviews where folks complain saying- "these aren't really vinyl- just look like it". I'm guessing they don't realize that a cd burner doesnt have the capability to press grooves in vinyl circa 1930- Anyway- returned my 100 cds for in store credit. Burned a few discs from the 10 pack and have a couple of cool looking coasters for my cd desk.

    Work fine, description a little misleading

    So first off: I have used these CD's for a little while now and as far as I can tell, they work fine. My CD player is a little iffy so I've had some problems (skipping and so forth) but I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with the CD's. My issue is that the whole "Vinyl" part of the description is somewhat misleading: as far as I can tell, these are just normal CD's that the company has glued a black (possibly) vinyl front onto. So, it looks kinda cool ("ooh, a CD that looks like a record!") but they are hard to write on (see: BLACK) and aren't really any different than a normal CD. Kinda gimmicky.

    Wouldn't you know it, after some 10 odd years, I finally ran out of that 100-pack CD-R spindle I bought. I still prefer to create hard copy backups of my smartphone's photos so I can sort them and lend them to friends & family, so I picked these up at a discounted price. They work just fine. The only downside is the vinyl-like embossing is black, so your standard black Sharpie marker naturally doesn't show up on those areas of the disc. The area on which you can label each disc is pretty small. No points docked, though -- 50 discs for 10 bucks is hard to complain about.

    They are fine works great . Bought in store just to find i paid extra, from on line $1 not a big deal just anoying. Sometimes its the other way around and i wouldve bought online for store pickup. Your pricing differences left a bad taste in my mouth. Now your free shipping has disapeared i thought it was through jan 2.dont know if ill even bother with the $5 coupon i was finalky awarded.

    Bad batch of recordable CD-R's?

    I purchased two 50-packs of these to back-up data. Opened a pack and the first four Cd's had trouble passing Nero's burn verification (used two different burners.) Did not open the second pack. Had been using these for years. I guess I was shipped a bad batch. VERY DISAPPOINTED! Am now going to backup strictly on flash drives only.

    I've used 6 of these to make family video copies. I had no case where my computer do not recognize the CD, which had been a problem with other brands. The price point was a good value as they were the lowest per cd price of the other alternatives. The design is interesting and very creative in that your cd has an appearance of old fashioned 45 RPM record.

    Just What I Was Looking For

    I still like to make music CDs for my car. There is not a huge selection of recordable CDs any longer. I did not want Memorex brand and that seems to be all other stores carry. I figured Best Buy would have more options. I picked these up on clearance for $13. They look like little records, very nostalgic. They record perfectly. Exactly what I was looking for.

    This product in my opinion was a return product from another customer.. The box was severely damaged, the cord was jammed in the box along with the Item being scratched and not sealed like most items in plastic wrap. Been a customer for many years and extremely disappointed. This item was mailed to me because the item was not available in the store.
