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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
