But yes, Verbatim is good.
I have never seen Verbatim DL-R, only DL+R, though there were reports it was finally to be released sometime after the +R dual layers were out.
+R has loss linking technology that was never in the dvd-r format, -r discs just did not have it in the spec, so unless they added that to the Dual Layer-r, I would only get the +R dual layers.
Never buy memorex dual layers, the failure rate on burns and player incompatibilities are a total nightmare.
I have used Verbatim +R dual layers for a year or more now, not 1 coaster ever, unless I screwed up the content to be burnt somehow. You also need a quality burner... if I were you I prefer a NEC or Pioneer dvd burner, that has been specifically reviewed for the dual layer media brand Verbatim before I would buy one.... will save you loads of aggravation.
