I have used Sony DVC and paid $2.25 each in lots of 150 from Pro-Tape.

But now they are $2.45 in lots of 130. How about yours? John

oops, you can do a lot better than Vistek.
I buy mine from VCR Video Warehouse and, IIRC, my last order was $350 for 10 cases. I've been dealing with them for years and recommend them highly.

thanks Mike - Wow - a savings of $150! I'll check them out.

oops, now that I'm back at work, I checked my order files. The price was actually $402.50 (taxes) and the order date was Sept. 2005. I'm guessing prices have gone up a bit since then but it's still worth a phone call.

Mike - I called and they are still $3 per tape cheaper than Vistek - next time I'm near there, will pick up a couple of boxes and save 30 bucks - thanks again:-)

oops, I did some more checking and DV Shop lists Panasonic "Master" 60 Minutes in a 5 pack for $37.
Hard to tell from that description if it's the same as what we're using but, once again, it's worth a phone call.

VID is very reasonable. Panasonic 63 minute PQ tapes are $2.99 in lots of 20. The 83 minute tapes are $6.29 in lots of 5.

The 63 minute MQ tapes you mentioned are $4.49 in lots of 5.
