Verbatim adds 8x DVDRW to line-up

Verbatim adds 8x DVDRW to line-up Verbatim has announced another addition to its DVD product range, the Verbatim DVD+RW 8x with 4.7 GB storage capacity. Bringing 8x rewritable speed to this popular format will allow users to reduce the recording time by 40% while still providing the inherent flexibility of rewritable format. The new media will be available as 10 pack for GB£11.50 (RRP incl. VAT).
The new fast DVD+RW is primarily designed for video recording and streaming computer backup applications. Users record 4.7 GB of data in approximately 8 minutes. The discs can be rewritten more than 1,000 times. Similar to Verbatim’s entire rewriteable product family, the DVD+RW 8x is an excellent archival disc.

The Advanced Super Eutectic Recording Layer (SERL) ensures that users can enjoy perfect noise-free, high-speed data storage every time. With conventional rewriteable media, the recording layer deteriorates with every rewrite, meaning a decrease in quality. With Verbatim rewriteable media however, the recording layer is returned to perfect condition on every erase cycle, leaving a flawless disk for the next recording.

I don't know about anyone else but when I come to burning DVD discs I always choose as slow a speed as possible to avoid coasters - and yes, it does work doing it that way too.

So tales of super high speeds really mean nothing to me.

But I got to say Verbatim media has always turned out to be reliable when I've used it.

"...it's only like 4 years behind everyone else " lol, it doesn't really matter I think most ppl burn at a low speed to get a good copy with minimal errors.

@pocketQ- this disc is an 8xdvd-rw disc not a standard DVD-R. for dvdr's, verbatim goes up to 16x like most companies.

Now that there's a GOOD QUALITY DVD-RW disc, perhaps Verbatim can concentrate it's efforts on improving the crappy CD-RW disc.
