US$0.02 for a blank DVD disk means a lot of money when some cheap DVD+R disks cost under US$0.2 per disk. :slight_smile:

I think that dvd+r are more compatable now because you can change the booktype to dvd-rom. This is great tho im happy the the prices are going down but it would of been better if dl disk were cheaper.

DVD-R and DVD+R cost nearly the same. Compatibility and quality are nearly the same between the two as well.

with + having an upper hand in almost everything :slight_smile:
