Verbatim 8.5GB Double-Layer DVD+R media is now available from authorised resellers. The media is available in single unit jewel case packaging with a recommended retail pricing of $ 14.95. Verbatim backs the quality of its complete line of DataLifePlus DVD media with a lifetime warranty. At this price I don’t see the attraction, here in the UK DVD-R 4x are down to .40p or less for Ritek and can even get 8x Fuji for around the same price. Until the price is a lot lower I shall give this one a miss. Nearly 15 dollars!! wow!!:r

Is that Australian dollars though? That works out at around £5.83 a disc. I know its still pricey though…


#4

Considering the press release is from Verbatim Australia I would think the prices are in AUD and not USD.


#5

Actually it’s about 15 whatever your currency is (Pound,Euro and Aus Dollar)


#6

For that price, I’d rather just buy two copies of the original DVD.


#7

yeah, only a moran will shell out that for one piece of media… you can get 100 packs of 4x DVD-R media at shop4tech.com for 36 bucks…


#8

Or, if you’ve already bought a DL drive and just want to be certain it can successfuly write to DL media…quality dual-layered media, that is.

We should wait until a competitor really apprears on stage. I would buy only one to confirm the capability of my 812s@832 :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Huh, what do you mean? $15AUD is quite different to $15 Euro or 15 pounds.


#11

Grr, stupid bug with the dollar sign. I meant 15 AUD is quite different to 15 Euro or 15 pounds.


#12

He meant they are charging 15 no matter what country you are in. They are best value in Australia because 15 AUD works out to around 6 pounds and 9 euro. It also works out to 11 US.


#13

Exactly, I will by just the one to check if my NEC actually does write then wait until they come to down to a more reasonable price.


#14

Just noticed this at PC World (UK) Verbatim Double Layer DVD+R 8.5GB, 2.4x certified £ 14.99!!! :r What a ripoff


#15

Vaporware. August or September might be more like it.


#16

Hardly, I saw them in the shop selling for AUD 13 bux.
