Memorex has added to its optical media line-up with its highest performing Double and Dual Layer (DL) DVD media. Memorex 8X DVD+R Double Layer and 4X DVD-R Dual Layer discs deliver the industry's fastest recording speeds and up to 8.5 GB of recording capacity.
Memorex DL media can record movies or other content, featuring 80 percent more capacity than a standard DVD. Longer continuous recording makes Memorex DL media ideal for recording movies, music and sporting events. DL discs offer DVD-quality picture resolution with four hours of recording time -- about two hours more than a single layer DVD -- accommodating most standard length movies on one disc. In addition to entertainment fans, computer users also will find high-capacity double layer DVDs to be an ideal back-up and storage medium for their data files.
Memorex leads the Double/Dual Layer DVD market with a massive 70 percent of U.S. market share through November 2005, according to the NPD Group, an independent market analysis firm that tracks point-of-sale information by volume and dollar sales to determine how well products are selling in the nation's top retailers.
Memorex 8X DVD+R DL and 4X DVD-R DL media will be available this month. Suggested retail prices for both formats are $29.99 for a five-pack with slim jewel cases or $39.99 for a 10-pack spindle. Memorex recordable media is sold in 23 of the nation's top 25 consumer electronics retailers, including Best Buy, Circuit City, CompUSA, Fry's Electronics, Kmart, Office Depot, OfficeMax, RadioShack, Staples, Target, Walgreens and Wal-Mart.
