Depending on how bad whoever is selling them to you is gouging you, you
can get them much cheaper. I've seen them as low as $5-$10 canadian.

OF course it sounds identical =) Digital copies, remember?
CD's are lossless. You can duplicate it a thousand times without any
change in the audio. That's why SM CD's are so scary to the actual people
selling the legit CD's. Why would you pay 30-40$ for an import CD when a
SM CD sounds the same? Shrug. I own neither legit import, nor SM CD's
myself, but I know people who do in both cases. You'd have a hard time
distinguishing an SM CD From a regular one if you didn't see the SM logo
on 'em.
