Verbatim brings us the first fully certified 24X CD-R discs

Verbatim anounced today the first CD-R discs certified for full-speed 24x recording. These discs can be filled in 3 minutes with a high speed writing device.

Offering the ultimate in speed, reliability and durability, the new 80-minute DataLifePlus® media features Verbatim’s innovative “Super Azo” recording dye — a major breakthrough in recording layer technology. In addition to providing highly reliable audio, video and data recordings at speeds of up to 3.5 MB/sec with the new 24x drives and 3.0MB/sec with the new 20x drives, the media can be used with existing CD drives at speeds ranging from 1X to 16X.

Certification by 20x/24x drive manufacturers such as Yamaha, Plextor, Ricoh and Sanyo provides end users with the assurance that Verbatim 24x media offers optimum recording at the full rated speed and that Verbatim’s new Super Azo technology not only withstands the high-speed lasers and drive speeds of the new drives, it maximizes their performance.
