I think that dual layer prices are going to continue to drop, especially around the holiday season. For one thing, faster speeds are avalable. Who wants to pay top dollar for 2.4x when you can get 6x for the same price? On top of that, not only has verbatium been on sale this cheap a few times recentlly, but memorex dual layer has been on sale a few times even cheaper. compusa had 25 memorex dual layer for 25$. I know that memorex are crap. but the average person doesn’t and they are not going to pay 4$ for verbatium when they can get memorex for 1$. They have to drop the prices some to compete (which they are).
Fyi speak of the devil, newegg has verbatium dvd+r dual layer 6x on sale for 30$ with 2$ 3 day shipping and a free 24 cd wallet. If you can get 6x for 30$, who would want to pay much more than 20$ for 2.4x? If you are interested in the newegg deal, you beter jump. We all know how fast their sales go on and off. If not, I’m quite sure you will see more of the 2.4x on sale this cheap or cheaper. That why I am not going to stock up. I’ll just buy a few because I expect them to get even cheaper than this (especially around black friday).
