Either I am missing nekrosoft13’s point.
(Could be he is seeing it different to my take on thread content.)
Or both of you are ( RJL65/Kerry56).
If responding to the OP ( & following thread).
It was suggested as a result of the OP’s question that.
BD writers weren’t worth going for yet.
(Thus implying.) As the cost per backup (my experience) would be under Â£1 compared to just below Â£5.
At least this was my take on it.
If you accept that then, the cost being very close.
Well, it just isn’t.
[U]So in this context[/U].
I wanted to know where discs prices ( & not the cost per GB ) was so “very close”.
It is a bit like the SSD vs HDD debate.
With that it’s, whether the cost for speed outweighs the cost of actual storage made available.
Here a case of whether the compression is that great when compared to 1:1 backups. Justifies the cost.[/QUOTE]
Actually, you were the one who’s missing the point if you have more than a few GB to back up. And to the user who has 4GB or less worth of data to back up, smaller-capacity media is a better value than DL DVD. After all, any large-capacity write-once optical media, whether DL DVD or BD, is a poor value if your backups consistently take up much less than the full capacity of the disc.
