Great Price so I snatched it up. Mini DV's can be expensive so to get 10 for 25.00 was well worth it. I have used these tapes before and got good picture quality so I have no complaints at all.

I've gone through a few dozen of the Panasonic branded miniDV tapes and I have yet to have a single issue.

These tapes (pack of 5) are very good in recording. I don't have any problems in rewinding/ fast forwarding the tapes to review what I recorded. I think the the price is reasonable too (nearly $14 for 5 tapes).

I bought these for use on three different camcorders - an older Panasonic SD camcorder, a newer consumer model Sony HD, and a professional model JVC GY-HD100. I shot in standard definition and HDV, and the footage I uploaded looked great on all of them. I also used a more expensive "Master" model of Panasonic miniDV Panasonic Mini DV tapes for some of the footage, and I can't tell the difference in quality. Unfortunately, I'm not really an expert in the field, and probably someone who was could give a good reason why to pay about four or five times as much for the more expensive tapes -- and it may have to do with durability over the long haul -- but for my purposes this one seemed to do quite well.

Used four out of the five so far and no problems or issues to report. Hopefully they'll hold up over the years.

I have been using these tapes for years (one time use though) and have never had any problems yet.

A few years ago I recieved a Panasonic PV-GS150 camcorder as a gift but never really used it much. In fact all the original stickers are still on the camcorder.I was in Best Buy and noticed they had a 5 pack of Sony 60 minute DV tapes for $31.99, when I asked why they were so much more expensive than I had remembered, the sales associate told me DV was being phased out.

This may or may not be the case, if it was I would tend to think the price would drop rather than rise as is the case for most any product that's being sent out to pasture. Thinking I might get a better deal on Amazon (99% of the time I do and I average about 20 purchases a month)

So that said I was shocked to find the Panasonic 5 pack of DV tapes for a mere $10.38!I didn't hesitate a moment, click - add to cart.The tapes are the real McCoy and the savings is incredible.I also found a head Cleaning tape for $8.00 (every place else is at least twice that) Click add to cart. Plus I found an extended battery which I priced everywhere I could think of online and found they ran about $60 - on Amazon $15.99. Click add to cart.

I added everything to my cart and all products combined costing less than a single 5 pack of tapes at a Big Box Electronic store.
Everything arrived well packaged and with lightening fast speed.

When it comes to deep discounts, from luxury items to the most basic household products - Amazon offers pricing that's usually impossible to beat.And as a Prime member the two day shipping is free on items that qualify - and that's an enormous selection.
I have no idea how they manage it - I'm just sure glad they do.

The price went up a little from when I first bought these, but for the price you get the most MiniDV tapes out of any other offer from what I've seen.

These tapes work very well, especially considering the price.

I had a few dropped frames one two of the tapes, but this happens on almost all tapes, and doesn't mean the tape itself was to blame. Many reviewers have complained about dropped frames on one or two of the tapes out of the pack, and I must iterate that an isolated one is to be expected every so often, especially when using consumer grade equipment.

That said, if you're shooting videos of your kids or some other "home" use, these tapes will undoubtedly meet your expectations. If you are a professional, you may want to consider something else, but more importantly, you should probably also upgrade to a format that doesn't use magnetic tapes-- the mechanical nature of them leads to errors, no matter how good the tapes and equipment you have are. There is no avoiding that, in any capacity.
