Picked up ABBOTT AND COSTELLO, VOL. 1 and THE BOB HOPE AND BING CROSBY ROAD TO COMEDY COLLECTION at Walmart tonight. Both are single-sided discs, four in the A&C set and two in the Hope-Crosby set.
I've never had any problem with the DVD-18s I own, but so many people have had trouble with them, that I've always been a little nervous about them.
With all due respect, other than price constraints, I cannot understand why anyone would prefer ANY kind of double-sided DVD format. I'm one of those who had problems with some of the original Abbott & Costello Volumes (Volumes 1 and 3, in my case!), when I purchased these from Wal-Mart in the spring of 2005. As far as I'm concerned, stacking 4 layers of data on a single disc is just asking for problems!
U.S. Amazon is currently offering the 2008 "Abbott & Costello: The Complete Universal Pictures Collection," containing all 28 Features for $57.49:

Believe it or not, Canadian Amazon is offering the recently reissued version of the above set, with more compact casing at the even lower price of $52.99 (In CDN. Dollars!)! Now, that's a first!:
P.S. I've just ordered "Abbott & Costello: The Complete Universal Pictures Collection," as this is the first time that I've ever seen it priced well below $100 on our Canadian Amazon website!
