Be careful, they don't specify if it's 1x or 2x speed on almost all of the spindles-- so if you're planning on burning video to those DVD-Rs, chances are if it's not 2x, your DVDs won't run as expected.

A quick question regarding video burning with
DVD-R's. Why would the DVD's not work correctly if 1x disks were used to burn video? :confused:

They transfer data 1/2 as slow as 2x. I purchased a spindle of 1x DVDs and burned a DVD project -- and while it did play, it did so haltingly to the point of being unbearable.

Thanks for the tip Manny. I never really looked that closely at the DVD-R disk's I used. I have only used the Apple branded disk's and have not had a problem with video. Now I know what to watch for when considering other brands.
