Recordable 50 GB Blu-ray recordable BD-R DL dual layer discs

A 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray disc also know as BD-R DL can store 10 times more data than a standard DVD on the same size blu-ray BD-R DL disc. When using Blu-ray it is vital to choose a reliable BD-R disc with a protective coating to prevent data loss and playback issues. The high definition ability of Bluray far outstrips standard DVD-R. How long will it take to record a full 50GB Blu-ray BD-R media disc? It will take you approximately 90 minutes to record a 50GB Blu-ray disc at 2x, this is similar to recording 10 DVD-R discs at 8x, one after the other, however many of the latest blu-ray burners will burn at 8x drastically reducing the recording time. For the professional finish we supply genuine Amaray Blu-ray cases.

How much data can a 50GB recordable Blu-ray BD-R disc actually hold?
