    It's been an industry non-secret that manufacturers have had an easier time making dual-layer HD DVD discs than dual layer Blu-ray discs. Hence, 30GB dual-layer HD DVD media have already been on the market, beating the single layer 25GB Blu-ray discs by five whole gigabytes. But now Blu-ray has the last laugh as Sony finally gets the 50GB dual-layer Blu-ray discs onto hands of US consumers.

    Ya, it's quite expensive. With that money i would buy a pack of 150 good DVD+R (~650GB) or a 80GB new HD...
    I think this gives us an idea of how much time the DVD's will stay (rule) in the market

    that is high but all things new on the market are very pricey, hell the burners are $700. give it about 6 to 8 months and the single layer 25 gig disks will be down to a $2 a piece or less. currently you can get a 50 pack of DVD-+R for $15 or less = 225 gig and not crap off brands either. this price of $15 is for SONY or HP, I like SONY, they stood the test of time unlike some of the others I've used, Memorex, Maxell, Verbatim, offbrand names to many to count. I prefer DVDRW so it's a little more, like 2.66x more, 0.80 per disk compared to 0.30 per disk

    TDK aren't bad either but like all companies it depends on what factory is assembling them not what name is sprayed on the outside. One pack of disks can be fine while another identical pack made by a different factory can be crap and the only way to tell the difference is by using a DVD identifier which means bying the disks, opening the package and scanning, not something you want to have to do with every pack a disks you buy. So you have to find the company that has high standards for all factories they use. So far Sony and HP with a couple others have been the best.
