Hello, was wondering if this itiem from tesco's

click here to see what i mean, actually contain the DVD's or just the "Cases" for the DVD's - not sure really, as £6.97 seems decent price:)

I would think they are the Discs in cases otherwise why would they say Dual Layer DVD+R, which would be irrelavent for empty cases. Also if you enlarge the picture it has the capacity and speed printed on the insert.

Yes BT, I know it says Dual Layer DVD+R on the cases, but wasn't too sure.

That seems a good price for 25 Dual layer DVD's though! over 210 gigs for less than £9.00 (what's delivery cost though?)

Looks like they are "cases only", as the related products are all cases, also, in the description it says "holds 10"

Either it's a means of clearly advising that the media being housed is dual layer (DL) type media (hence the listed media specifications) or, less likely, the "dual layer" will be an folding insert within the case itself (the rectangular DVD size) to hold two CDs or DVDs.

There are also CD case sized examples to house double album audio CDs.

No media appears to come with the cases.

If you click on the image to the left to enlarge you will find they are labled as 8.5GB double layer discs

Yes BT, I know it says Dual Layer DVD+R

IT DOES NOT it actually says DOUBLE layer so you get two discs in one case, another clue is it says 10 discs,if you look at the picture it shows 5 cases

it also says...
Brand Tesco
Colour Clear
Format DVD
Holds 10
Material Plastic

WOW thanks for that X7-250 not going to go into the technicalities of why, how strange it is, you would think dual layer is dual layer is dual layer in any disc format...
