Verbatim announced here at CES this month that it is shipping 8x-speed DataLifePlus 4.7GB DVD+R media this month, just as higher speed DVD multi-format burners become widely available. At 8x speed, the write-once 4.7GB DVD+R disc can be filled to capacity in less than 10 minutes.
Verbatim's 8x DVD+R media has been tested and approved by major original -equipment manufacturers of 8x burners such as BenQ DW800A, LiteOn LDW-841S, NEC ND-2100A and Plextor PX-708A, as well as 8x DVD+R burners announced by Hewlett-Packard, Philips and Dell, said the company.
Broad compatibility, a low storage cost and high-speed recording make the discs ideal for sharing computer data, home videos, photos and music, said Verbatim.
DataLifePlus 8x DVD+R media has an estimated street price of $3.99. It is packaged in jewel cases, multi-packs and spindles. Blank inkjet printable surface discs also will be available.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
