Verbatim ships 40X CD-R media

Verbatim, the company behind a variety of digital storage products, is now shipping DataLifePlus 40x-certified CD-R discs that the company says can burn a full 700MB of data or 80 minutes of music in about two minutes.

The media features Verbatim's "Super Azo" recording dye, according to Certification Ron Hanafin, Verbatim CD product marketing manager. The Azo recording dye reacts faster to laser light than dyes used by other manufacturers, he said. The result, according to Hanafin, is "faster, error-free recording."

What's more, the Verbatim CD-R's silver reflective layer is safeguarded with a dual-protective layer that provides a longer archival life and protection from scratches that can damage the recording layer, as well as maximum read/write performance, he said. Verbatim's DataLifePlus CD-R media is the only CD-R disc that includes double protection for the reflective layer as standard, according to Hanafin. Verbatim 40x CD-Rs are also compatible with older, lower-speed drives. The discs purportedly deliver an archival life of more than 100 years.

Tthe new DataLifePlus 40x 80 min. CD-R media is available in single and multiple-disc packages with ultra-slim cases, jewel cases and spindles. Street prices for the new media are US$.99 for a single disc and $8.99 for a 10-pack. The product will be available in Australia in 10 pack, slim line cases for RRP$13.00 including GST.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
