These dual layer discs have the usual trick of holding almost twice as much as ordinary single layer discs (8.5GB vs. 4.7GB), but as they're recordable at 8x, they also avoid the slow speeds associated with the more common 2.4x dual layer discs.
So you get the best of both worlds, and you get the high quality associated with Verbatim. Win win!
