Verbatim's 24x certified CD-RW discs coming soon

Verbatim today announced new DataLifePlus 16x-24x certified Ultra Speed CD-RW discs. The company said the discs have been tested and qualified by manufacturers of 24x drives.

Verbatim said that the development of Advanced Super Eutectic Recording Layer (Advanced-SERL) and a new recording method are the reasons why Verbatim is "the first and only manufacturer" so far that's capable of making "Ultra Speed" 16x-24x CD-RW media. Advanced-SERL is a new recording layer that reduces media noise during erase/rewrite cycles and ensures erasability at high speeds. The new recording method, called 2T Writing Strategy, overcomes a limitation in conventional recording technology that guarantees the stability of the recorded mark. Verbatim noted that 2T Writing Strategy has been proposed as the standard for 24x CD-RW recording and is gaining support from drive and IC makers.

The new discs are compliant with Orange Book Part III Volume 3 specifications, and work well with "Mt Rainier"-compliant CD-RW burners. Their archival life is rated at more than 30 years and should work for more than 1,000 overwrites.

The new 16x-24x CD-RW media hit stores next month in singles and multipacks starting at US$1.49 per disc.

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.
