Sony Mini DV tapes

Does anyone out there have an online source for purchasing Sony Mini-DV tapes on the cheap? Preferably not a CA. vendor as I hate to pay 8.25% sales tax if I don't have to. I love my state but not our inflated taxes.

Thank you in advance,

Stephanie, I recently searched the Net to find a reliable vendor with the best prices on Sony Mini-DV EX and Full size tapes, and found Total Media Inc. ( ) to be the one. However, I also needed to purchase a few other things and so I ended up placing my order with B&H; they may not offer the best prices but they are one of the most reputable vendors. I've bought almost all my equipment from them and never had any problem. Another place with good prices is
