Verbatim is not going to be left out of the blank high-def media market. They plan on shipping HD DVD and 2X BD-R media to the Japanese market by July. The HD DVD discs are the same as those Maxel and Mitsubishi discs announced last week though; just a different media brand. The 2X Blu-ray discs are new though. Nothing real special here, just a 2X Blu-ray disc from another manufacturer. NOTE: TDK is already selling 2X BD-R media here in the States. Hopefully some competition will drive down the cost though.
2X media is great and all but where is our 4X to match with LG's new 4X Blu-ray recorder?
