Memorex expanded its family of optical drives with the release of its latest 16x dual-format, double-layer DVD recorders, which are available in both external and internal models.

According to the press release, the new recorders allow consumers to burn single-layer DVD+R/-R discs at speeds up to 16x and new double-layer DVD+R9 discs at speeds up to 4x. Consumers with no time to spare can now burn DVD+R and DVD-R discs in seven minutes and a full DVD+R9 disc in about 50 minutes, said Memorex. They can also burn up to 8.5GB of extended length movies, music and photos unto double-layer discs, which provide 80 percent more recording capacity compared to single-layer discs, added the company.

"DVD recording has become a key part of consumers' digital lifestyles. More and more consumers rely on high-performance Memorex products to capture, save and share their data," commented Allen Gharapetian, VP of marketing and product development. "Our new 16x dual-format, double-layer DVD recorders deliver the latest DVD recording speeds available, and allow consumers to easily record and save home movies, precious photos and important data for generations."

To complement its newest line of DVD recorders, the company also introduced its Director's Cut recordable DVDs and Cool Colors recordable DVDs.
