    Bigpockets now have a limited quantity (1 tub per order) of Ritek Dual Layer disks. The most amazing thing is the price. £8.49 for a tub of 25. Can't believe it myself but have ordered some anyway to see how they perform :D

    Just placed an order! I think we may find we only get a single disk pop through the door rather than 25 ;) Total cost was £11.98 - not too bad IMHO.

    I had (have) the same thought but the page is quite clear

    "25 Pack @ £8.49 per pack"

    I shall be complaining if it is only one disc as have also bought the NEC2510A especially (which I don't need as I have 2 x Pio A07 and a Sony DRU510). Fingers crossed.

    The site now says "1 Pack of 1 disc @ £8.49 per pack"

    Yes - I saw the same message although the product description did also state:
    "DVD+R DL 8.5GB (1)", Quantity 1

    I'm expecting a single disk but if I get more I won't complain! However according to Verbatim no multi-packs of DVD+R DL have yet been released - so I wouldn't get your hopes up:

    Already received a mail (below) so have cancelled my order. Would have been good but never expected to start using D/L discs until early next year when the formats and prices have settled so no loss.

    "Unfortunately due to a problem with the product description on the Double Layer Ritek 8.5 Gb DVD+R discs, you may have been misinformed about the quantity of disks you will receive when ordering this item. The price of £8.49 is for a single disc only and not for a pack of 25. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. We understand that you may wish to cancel the order in light of this situation, so we will put your order on hold until you notify us of how you wish to proceed. Obviously if you decide to cancel the order or fail to reply to this email we will refund you for this item. Once again please accept our sincere apologies for this unfortunate mix up,"
