Anyway, back then, I bought 50 DVD-R discs for $0.40 each. I thought about getting dual layer DVD+R discs, but at the time, they cost $8 a pop, which would have been completely silly.
It's still fairly silly to buy dual layer DVD+R discs, although the price has gone down to about $2.67 a pop -- or at least that's what I paid for a small spool. Although the DVD-R (single layer) discs (another 50) cost me about $0.26 each this time around. That's almost as cheap as CD-R discs.
I suppose in a year or two, I'll be buying nothing but dual layer DVD+Rs, but for me, the price needs to drop under $1 each before the convenience of having an extra 4GB per disc outweighs pure GB/dollar considerations.
