Ever since launching its first certified recordable media selection in September 1999, Yamaha has continued to offer only the highest grade CD-R/RW media to help eliminate quality control problems caused by the proliferation of sub-standard media products in the marketplace. The new products include the CDR80M1210, a 10-pack, 80-minute, 700 MB, 12X certified CD-R disc package; and the CDR74M1250, an economical 50-pack, 74- minute, 650 MB, 12X certified CD-R disc package.

"Yamaha is a recognized leader in the CD-R market," notes Henio Arcangeli, Jr., vice president/general manager, Consumer Products Division, Yamaha Corporation of America. "With the popularity of high speed CD recorders, providing the latest high-quality, extended capacity 80 minute 12X media and an economical 50-pack spindle was a logical decision to help fuel our growing CD-R/RW media business."
Yamaha CD-R (write-once) discs are ideal for many applications: audio CD recording, distribution of large files, MP3 music downloading, multimedia presentations, photo storage, archival file storage, record keeping, software back-up, writing and recording music. Each disc is completely compatible with 1X through 12X recording speeds, has 100-percent compatibility with all leading brand CD-R drives, and has an average expected data life of greater than 100 years.
All discs feature a Metal Azo dye layer for maximum data reliability and longevity, an extra protective layer (to guard the reflective layer) and built-in UV light degradation protection. The scratch-resistant surface is suitable for both thermal and inkjet printing. Discs in the CDR80M1210 pack are individually jewel-cased and shrink-wrapped in a full-color sleeve, while discs in the CDR74M1250 pack are packed together on a stackable spindle wrapped over by a full-color band.
