    it is probably very appearent about the little i know of disc manufacturing costs...but i would rather have two discs single sided, and pay...lets say 4 or5 dollars more per set than have one duel sided disc. just wonder what others might feel...
    like the OUTER LIMITS set...would be much nice single sided even if it did inrease the price by ten or so.

    I prefer dual-sided releases for longer program content, such as televison series. Mainly because single sided discs tend to, cumulatively speaking, take up more storage space. For instance, the single-sided, two episodes per disc release of the original Star Trek.

    DVD is a 2-sided medium. End of story.

    It depends.

    If a release is a dual screen format, I'd prefer a DVD-14 or DVD-18 for it. However, put the widescreen version on the dual layered side and the P&S version on the single side. That way, widescreen buffs don't have to change sides. [​IMG]

    For multi-disc sets like for The Outer Limits, dual sides is probably very good.

    It really depends on the release. Sets that would have the movie disc and the extras discs work best as dual-disc sets.

    It doesn't matter much to me, though.

    I prefer dual sided. Dual sided DVD's save shelf space. Also it's cheaper to use dual sided DVD's than to use 2 DVD's.
