    How much are dual layer discs. Especially as standard dvd's can be bought for 20p or so. Not sure I'd bother paying £2 say just for a dual layer disc.

    They won't record on your Sony, but if you burn them on a PC (with DVD-ROM book type) then they will play; at least they do on my Sony GX500 which I would assume has a similar/same drive.

    Yep. I've used SVP twice. Ordered 100 and it worked out about 25p per disc with del included. Pretty quick del also. As for dual layer dvds. Even at £3.50 (does that include p+p) I could have 14 single layer discs. Know what I'd rather have.

    Not inc P & P but they have 5p shipping weekends every now and then if you've registered as a member. Just order a ton of stuff all at once.

    I agree about the price of DL though.
