Memorex ships HD DVD-R media

Matt Burns

There isn't many devices that can utilize this media, but for those chaps that happen to have a Toshiba RD-A1 or NEC HR-1100A PC drive, this is great news. These Memorex discs are only the 15GB, single-layer flavor but that fits nicely with the recorders. We understand that some folks want to make their own HD DVD's but we don't understand cost-benefit of using these $20 discs for data back up when they cost just a few dollars less then a whole hard drive. These discs can mean pushing the high-def envelope even farther for indie filmmakers though, as they can hold up to 75 minutes of HD.
