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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
