Today there are a multitude of companies selling CD and DVD duplication through their web sites on the internet. Many of these companies purport to be the best in some way or another. In many cases the companies that make the biggest claims are small back room enterprises.
Whilst it is natural for companies and individuals to want to get the best possible deal for their money, it is not always a good idea to buy the cheapest. In some cases, companies do offer good deals on good quality product but in the main the old adage, you get what you pay for still reigns supreme. It‚Äôs worth doing a financial check on companies prior to placing your order.
If you were to put CD Duplication into Google, one of the companies that come first in the rankings states that ‚ÄúWe are the UK's leading CD/DVD/Blu-ray duplicator providing exceptional quality at the lowest UK prices but if you were to run a credit check on this company, you would find that they are particularly small with an advised credit limit of £Nil and a working capital of minus £85,505, effectively insolvent. Additionally, not only are they not the leading duplicator in the UK but they do not offer the lowest prices either. Other top ranked sites which are equally as small and in trading difficulty don‚Äôt even display a company address and the phone number is a 0800 number. They all use one superlative or another, none of which are likely to be true.
This is the problem with Google searches, people have found a method to get to the top which would not be termed ethical and unfortunately Google have been unable to filter these insignificant sites out of the searches. So they are left to supply sub-standard product and services to their customers, giving the whole industry a bad name. Because of their need to survive, they drive prices down whilst they are trading but when they disappear, many of their old customers expect to keep paying a low price but for substantially better quality product.
To come back to CD and DVD Discs, there are a number of grades of these products on the market and there are suppliers who are on the look out for the low grade cheap product to make a fast buck! However, many of these discs lose data over time, whether its CD Duplication or DVD Duplication, it could be more costly to buy these cheaper discs than spend a few pence more in getting quality product which will last the course.
There are a number of instances of poor quality discs which can be cited, they are usually thinner and you can see through them when holding them up to the light. The lacquering fades, especially when left in sunlight, which often happens to discs people leave on their desk and they sit next to or close to a window, these two instances alone will account for a large proportion of losses but there are other problems including the depth of the groove being insufficient.
The only solution for all of these problems is to build a relationship with a quality supplier, one that has traded for many years and only supplies quality product such as Taiyo Yuden and in particular Sony DADC who have an excellent reputation for quality of CDR and DVDR products. They do not suffer the problems of fade and retain the data where the others fail.
