Default Philips dual layer DVD+ burner in July

sponsored links
Some positive news that dual layer is nearly here

"According to a German website, Philips will present at Cebit their DVD Dual Layer burner - the snappily titled 'DVD+RW 885K'. The dual-layer DVD+R media it burn will have nearly twice the current capacity of 8.5 gigabytes at data.

The Philips DVD+RW 885K

It seems the drive will burn at 8x on the first layer and 2.4x on the second layer in the DVD+R format DVD+R. Rewriting will only be available on the first layer at 4x.

The reading rate for DVDs is 12x. CD burning will be 24x10x40.

The 'DVD+RW 885K' will be available starting from July, pricing is not yet known."

Weird. 8x on the first layer and 2.4x on the 2nd layer? Oh well. I still won't touch the Phillips drive. They haven't been producing the greatest stuff lately. That and it will be spendy.

Considering what the price is going to be on dual layer disc, I'm predicting it's might be 2.5 times higher than prices right now. I'll just take that wait and see approach. Will likely get a dual burner (not philips though) when the price is just right (probably around 150).

That will probably be in about 2007.
