Provided By: Memorex
As one of the biggest names in the storage industry, Memorex doesn't need much of an introduction. Founded in 1961 by a group of engineers, Memorex got its start by producing data backup tapes for the emerging computer industry. By the 1970's, the company entered the consumer market with its own line of recordable audio and video tapes. Today, Memorex has made the shift from analog to digital and has established itself as one of the world's leading providers of recordable CD and DVD media.
While best known for its recordable media, Memorex offers an assortment of computer peripherals, including its own line of CD and DVD drives. With their good looks and impressive specs, these drives have been a hit with consumers right from the start. This winter, Memorex introduced its first 18x DVD writer, the MRX-525G. Based on the LG GSA-H22N, the MRX-525G is capable of 18x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW, 8x DVD±R DL and 12x DVD-RAM writing speeds and a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. Memorex's new drive also includes features like 48x CD reading and writing speeds, 32x rewriting speeds and an impressive software bundle from Nero.
With store shelves already full of DVD writers with similar specs and features, Memorex's new drive is up against some stiff competition. To give you an idea of what to expect from the MRX-525G, we'll take a look at some of its features and then see how it compares to some of the 18x DVD±RW drives from the competition. Does Memorex's new drive have what it takes? Keep reading as we find out.
