    Needed some dl discs to back up some original media. I was stoked to see they had Verbatim instead of memorex. Not that they aren't decent, but I've always has stellar results with verbatim. Only reason I gave them average score was because 20 of them were more expensive than 25 recordable blurays. Can't really figure that one out. That's 8.5GB to 25GB, maybe the demand is high for those dl's cause I used to be able to get them at a few different places in town but now best buy is the only one to carry them. In my opinion it's worth the extra cash to be able to make an uncompressed backup and have it come out better than the original. If a disc is scratched to where it has errors, I've found a good solution can be burning a backup. The new disc will play fine. Then you have to destroy the backup if you rented it. But at least you got to watch you movie without all the tracking errors that can make a movie unwatchable, Sometimes if I get a bad one I'll have to resurface it multiple times, run a lens cleaner in drives/player and I can usually get a temp back up out of it. So reason for average rating was that the were pricey. Guess I better get a rewritable bd drive soon, I mean if I can buy 25GB discs for less and record on then seems pretty good to me. Not sure if current system will be getting that anytime soon, Been planning on using my vid card slot (slim) for a usb 3 + c card to hopefully run an external bd writter. It'll cost a bit and may be hard to find specific card. But I think It'd be worth it longrun. Have to get new software as well so I'd be around 3 bills I guess to be able to do what you want the blurays. And I guess save money buying blank bluray since their cheaper than dl-dvds. unless that was a fluke...

    As most Verbatim disk go these dual layer disks are no different, there are many DVD Burners/Writers out there that simply don't like something about Verbatim disks, it could be the foil that they are made with, or a coating, or one of a dozen different things. I can tell you that they seem to work well in most LG, and Samsung DVD-RW's but they do NOT seem to work so well in Sony, NEC or Lite-on DVD-RWs so maybe try a smaller pack first to make sure they work as i coaster-ed over 25 while testing on different drives. Additionally these 8.5GB dual layer disks are a fairly good deal when on sale and safely hold about 8.1GB of data, do not expect to be able to over-burn these like you can with many of the dual layer Memorex disks, which are the brand disks that i would recommend as they work in pretty much any DVD-RW, play in just about any DVD Player and in most case can be slightly over-burned with the right software. Enjoy, and happy backing up.

    THE WORST BUY IN MY LIFE!!!

    Anonymous

    I heard that this was a great brand to use out of all the others, so i wanted to try it. I waited until it was on sale. When it finally was on sale for the 20-pack, i immediately bought it so i can transfer all of my data files and videos. I was wrong! This was the worst buy in my life! Out of the 20 discs, only 5 worked! And I still didn't get to copy all of my data files! I was extremely angry that I wasted over $30 dollars for this useless product! I only wished that I kept the receipt so I can return it to get my money back! The message kept reading error again and again, especially when it was half-way done, it kept messing up! And I couldn't reuse it again! I really regret buying this and I always will! I much rather would've bought the Memorex discs. Not for making DVDs but I bet it would've worked for data transfer. Friendly warning: Do not use this product!

    While these discs are MII, they are lower quality than those MIS. It is still possible to backup all data without any problems. Not even one problem burning data. Recommend using ImgBurn(free app) to burn all data. Highly configurable, and it's 100% free. The program seems to like these discs over others I have tried. Tip: burn at slower speeds (2x, 2.4x). It may take a little longer, but there is a 99% chance of no errors and the disc will be read much easier when using across different platforms and disc drives.

    We didn't have many options when we picked these up. They all work so far and the read and write were quick on all of our burners. Also, no compatibility issues whatsoever with our client's laptops where the finished (copied) DVDs end up being used. We also write DVDs with an external USB 3.0 DVD writer and that one could read and write these all day long too. Overall, we are very happy with these double layer DVDs and will continue to buy more when we run out of them.

    The absolute best media out there. Hand picked off a line to ensure no defects. If you get a fail half way through its because your drive either is bogus, your drivers are not working properly (try reinstalling or using an older whql), or your i/o on the motherboard is not working properly. I am a professional IT guy and trust me when I say there are a ton of things that could effect your drive and communication with the os, that's why people get failed burns. In short VERBATIM media is the best. if it fails its because you've failed somewhere making sure your PC is running its best.

    WARNING: These discs may not work with DVD-R DL single format burners (DVD+R DL or multi-format is guaranteed to work). Let me start by saying I've used many Verbatim products in the past 22 years and they’ve never failed me. As a mentioned in the summary this product is a great choice for DVD format, however if you've already upgraded to Blu-Ray format I highly recommend purchasing this BB product instead: https://tinyurl.com/jayp8kw . Both products I stated above are excellent choices for either format, especially when on sale.

    After a Windows update in Nov 2017 my 1 year old laptop stopped working. Wouldn't boot. No login. No nothing. Luckily I had another system with windows 10 on it. I was able to make an image disc from my desktop and used it to reimage my laptop. The windows image was about 6 gigs and a standard DVD would only support 4.5 gigs (or so). These Dual Layer (DL) she's support up to 8 gigs and handled the job with no problem.
