LAS VEGAS, COMDEX BOOTH # 5123, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Memorex again flexes its leadership muscles in the blank media arena with the introduction of new Platinum Certified 12X CD-R media.
New super fast 12X CD-R drive "burners" are emerging as the next standard in CD recording. But they've created a need for high-performance blank CD-R media that can keep pace. Memorex steps into the breech with 12X media available in 5- and 10-pack configurations.
"Machines with write speeds of 12X will be a significant factor within the next several months," said Steve Johnson, Vice President of Media Products. "The demand for media that can keep pace with the new performance requirements of end users and these drives will be significant."
Memorex Platinum Certified CD-R media features 650 MB of storage capacity (74-minute record time), and 200 years of archive life. 12X CD-R's are "backward compatible" with 4X and 8X speed machines. Two configurations are available. The 12X CD-R 5-Pack has a suggested retail price (MSRP) of $12.99. The 10-Pack carries an MSRP of $24.99. Both will be available in January 2000.
"With Memorex high-performance recordable media," added Johnson, "consumers can get the maximum benefit for their investment in the latest technology."
