Marvel “Super Used Movie” Sale at Redbox

Marvel “Super Used Movie” Sale at Redbox

Hi everyone,

Redbox is currently having a Marvel Movie Sale titled “Super Used Movie Sale”, with each film being available for just $1.99. This applies to both the DVD and the Blu-Ray versions.

Do note that some kiosks may only have a fewer selection of films and some of them can be bought only at the box. An example is the first Avengers Movie and the Avengers: Age of Ultron film, which will not be shown in the app, but some kiosks may have them. Also, you may find the Avengers: Infinity War Blu-Ray on some kiosks as well, while the app only allows the purchase of the DVD version. For Ant-Man and The Wasp, you can only purchase the Blu-Ray version on the app while the DVD version may be at the kiosk.

I’m going to be honest: I have not seen the Marvel movies except for Iron Man 1 and 2 and the first Thor movie, so this sale is worth it as you can basically own the movies for $0.01 less than renting the Blu-Ray version and $0.14 more than renting the DVD version. You can bet I took advantage of this sale:

The first Avengers movie was made available at the kiosk this past Tuesday, but can only be rented at the box and only the Blu-Ray version is in stock. Maybe Redbox will update their app inventory to include this title to buy or purchase.

You have until August 2nd to go and purchase the Marvel movies. The only movies that seem to not be available for sale so far are the Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange movies.

My guess is Redbox wants to liquidate inventory while also making space at the boxes for the new movies coming in the following weeks. August is sure to bring hit movies to the box every week!

Will you buy any of the Marvel movies on sale?

Burning the SmartBuy DVD+R DL 8.5GB disc in the Panasonic UJ-260 drive

Burning the SmartBuy DVD+R DL 8.5GB disc in the Panasonic UJ-260 drive

Hi everyone,

Today, we will see how well a SmartBuy DVD+R DL disc burn in the Panasonic UJ-260 drive:

This unit supports burning these discs at a speed of 2.4x and 6x. This post will focus on a disc burned at 6x.

Smartbuy DVD+R DL RITEK-S04-66 Panasonic UJ-260 Burning 1

Burning the disc seem to have gone well:

This drive burns dual layer discs using a Z-CLV strategy. It starts burning at 2.4x, then increasing the speed to 4x, and finally reaching 6x. On the second layer, it does the opposite, starting at 6x, then going to 4x, and finally dropping to 2.4x.

The disc verification was successful:

This is how the disc surface looks after burning:

SmartBuy DVD+R DL Burned Surface 6x Panasonic UJ-260

You can see there are 3 visible zones in the disc, which are the 2.4x, 4x and 6x zones. It makes the impression that there may be more zones, but this may be because of the dual layer and how the writer writes the second layer.

Quality Scans

We will now see some disc quality scans from the above disc. All of the scans are performed at a speed of 4x, except in the Optiarc AD-7561A, which does not support setting the read speed, and the AD-7740H, which only scans at 6x and 8x.

LiteOn iHAS524 A

Smartbuy DVD+R DL RITEK-S04-66 Panasonic UJ-260 Scan Optiarc LiteOn iHAS524

This is a very good scan with only a few elevated numbers in the 2nd layer and a spike in the PIE at the layer break.

LiteOn iHBS112 2

Smartbuy DVD+R DL RITEK-S04-66 Panasonic UJ-260 Scan Optiarc LiteOn iHBS112

This drive always seem to scan the PIF correctly but reports a lot of error in the PIE. There is a spike in the layer break for both the PIE and PIF reported in this drive.

LG WH16NS58

SmartBuy RITEK-S04-66 Panasonic UJ260 LG WH16NS58

Numbers similar to the LiteOn iHAS524 drive, except the PIE are a bit higher at the end. It also reports a spike in the PIE numbers at the layer break.

Optiarc AD-7561A

This drive always reports elevated numbers. At about the 5.5GB mark, there seems to be a PIF spike.

Optiarc AD-7740H

Smartbuy DVD+R DL RITEK-S04-66 Panasonic UJ-260 Scan Optiarc AD-7740H

Elevated PIE numbers at the second layer, and a spike in the layer break.

Samsung SN-208AB

Smartbuy DVD+R DL RITEK-S04-66 Panasonic UJ-260 Scan Samsung SN-208AB

A good result. There is no spike reported in the layer break, but it is in the PIE.

Conclusion

The Panasonic UJ-260 has been one of my favorite drives when it comes to writing Blu-Ray discs. I recently started to use it to burn DVD+R discs for archival purposes and it seems to do the job well done. The only issue seems to be at the layer break that some drives can detect. Since only a few drives see this, I can’t say for sure that the disc is a bad burn. The Panasonic drive itself verified it correctly and the other drives can read it fine as well. Therefore, it seems to have done the job correctly. On the other hand, this drive does not support DVD+R/DL bitsetting, so if you’re cool with that, this drive will work for you.

You can buy these discs on Amazon at the following link:
