Sony’s dual-layer DVD burners are here! T-ready’s gettin’ excited!! Sony unveiled the internal DRU-700A and external DRX-700UL drives yesterday, which will burn data on discs that double the capacity of current writable DVD’s.
“The forthcoming devices will let users record up to 8.5GB of data, which translates to 4 hours of video or more than 2,000 songs. They will have a double-layer data-recording speed of 2.4x initially, and also will feature the ability to record using both the “plus” and “dash” formats at high speeds (up to 8x DVD+/-R).”
