This seems like a really good price to me. It isn't LTH media and from what I was reading can go to 8x with the right drive. I am thinking about getting some of these and a Pioneer BDR-206.
As I see it the Verbatim DL are still $1 a disc on a good deal. Thats ~$.12 per GB and the BD-R is ~.08 per GB. I can now make BD-R copies instead of AVCHD copies for fairly cheap!
