5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I was a bit nervous burning one of these, because the thought of a $7.00 coaster did not excite me.

However, my fears were unjustified.It burned flawlessly.It's awesome to have 8.5GB of data on one disk.

1-0 out of 5 stars how to use them????
Ok, I have the dvd9s but for some reason no one seems to know how to make a movie with them. I have the latest version of Nero and windvd creator 2. Well, Nero recognizes them, and burns the DVD, but the DVD-movie is only recognized in a DL drive not a regular one (made late 2004) and WinDVD creator 2 doesn't seem to even recognize the dvd9.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love these DVD+R DLs
As of this date, I have used approximately 6 of these DVDs, without any problems at all.Although it takes a while to process, I don't just sit and stare at the monitor, I'm busy doing something, so the time still flies.Sometimes I think it is so accurate because of the slow speed.All I an say is the results have been flawless, no problems at all. I have tried them on several standalone DVD players, with no issues at all.I used a sony DVD RW drive.

4-0 out of 5 stars these are great!
Verbatium is known for its media all around the world, and it should shock anyone that their dual-layer DVD+Rs are great!

I have burned things with them with no problems!

Yes, there is a 2.4 burn speed, but most dual-layer drives out right now can't burn past that anyways, so anyone complaining about that, well, get over it until something newer and better comes out.

Now - if for some reason you are trying to burn movies, be very cautious.Most older DVD players (anything made before 2004) might have some issues playing these discs.Also, if you use a PlayStation 2 to view your movies, a lot of the older models will not play them or will have little compatability.This is due to the new media not being supported, but the majority of new dvd players and newer models of the PS2 should play movies with ease.

These are the best dual-layer DVD+Rs.

My only gripe, as I'm sure it is with everyone else - the price.$20 seems like a decent price for the three-pack - paying close to $10 a disc - a little steep for many, especially since dual-layer drives seem to be in a lot of stores, but you can't find the media anywhere...

...I can only hope this changes.

Overall - a great product.A little pricy, but, somewhat worth it for now.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent media quality
Quick Summary: Burns at 2.4x or 4x on Plextor 716A burner; Verbatim DVD+R DL burned with the Plextor 716A is PLAYABLE in EVERY DVD Player (at least 20 and counting) I have tried!!!Awesome.

Full article:
I recently used the Verbatim DVD+R DL media to back up a couple of my most popular DVD's.The original was 8.1GB in size and contained about 50 music videos.I couldn't get it to squeeze down to fit on a single layer disc.Verbatim DVD+R DL to the rescue!

Using my new Plextor PX-716A burner (an excellent DVD Burner!), I used the included PlexTools program to make a copy of my DVD.Note, the original DVD is not protected in any way.

I burned the DVD+R DL at 4x speed (approx. 28 min. to burn).There is a selection in the Plextor's software to "overwrite" the book type of the DVD+R DL so that it looks like a pressed dual-layer DVD to settop DVD players (to avoid a confusing older DVD players).I used this setting (it is by default) to burn the DVD.

When it comes to DVD burning, there is no better test than the compatiblilty and quality test of the burned disc.The test is simple, put the burned DVD in as many players as you can and seehow many can and cannot read it.Well, I have to say that I have tested this DVD+R DL in over 20 DVD players so far, and ALL have played it with NO COMPATIBILITY issues whatsoever. This finding is as good as or better than all DVD+R and DVD-R (single layer) I have ever used.

After having read all the reviews on the web about how incompatible burned DVD+R DL discs are, I have to say, the Plextor 716A and Verbatim DVD+R DL combination blows everything else away.

Yes, the discs are kinda expensive, but if you have valuable or irreplaceable DVDs to back up, they will work for you.As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Caveat emptor
With all due respect to the previous reviews, the package does clearly indicate (along with most of the online descriptions and forum discussions) that only one DL exists in the box along with 8 8x and 1 RW.This makes it very expensive, at the current time, to test a new DL drive (or a firmware hacked one).

1-0 out of 5 stars Misleading Ad
Unfortunately, it is true that this package only contains ONE blank DVD+R DL disc, the rest are DVD+R SL (and maybe one DVD+RW, but I don't remember anymore).Luckily, I had the chance to take a look at the "con" package at BestBuy before ordering online and was shocked to notice that Verbatim is involved in such a scheme :(.

Hope this helps.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this
There is only one 8.5 GB disk in this 'solution kit'.All the other disks are 4.7 GB.The ad is pretty much an outright lie.

1-0 out of 5 stars False advertising
In my eagerness to get Double Layer blank media I made the mistake of ordering this product. There is only 1 double layer disk out of 10. Since DVD+R media goes for about $1 per disk that means the double layer disk costs $21. Not very practical.I should have looked at the picture on the box more closely.The product detail description needs to be changed from "8.5GB on single-sided disc" to "8.5GB on only one out of ten single-sided discs" to be more clear.

2-0 out of 5 stars The name of the pack is trying to fool you.
This pack only includes one dual layer blank. all the others are single layer blanks. Some ads dont tell you the content and the picture is too small to see the contents. ... Read more
