RITEK Launches 16x DVD+R DL Media

Postby Ian on Thu Dec 20, 2007 1:03 pm

I take it that Ritek doesn't know that Ricoh was actually the first to launch 16x DVD+R DL media? Then again, Ricoh has yet to make it into full production.


RITEK Corporation, the global leading manufacturer of storage media, has once again outdone competitors with its outstanding technology to become the first company to launch DVD+R DL 16X. RITEK's DVD+R DL offers up to 16X of writing speed and is undoubtedly a welcoming product for modern PC users who are always concerned about speed.

Before Blu-ray discs become the next mainstream media, RITEK Corporation has offered its new DVD+R DL 16X as consumers' best solution for backups and data storage. Apart from having the advantages of large capacity of 8.5GB and the convenience of not having to change sides during the burning process, at a writing speed at 16X, it will only take 10 minutes to write 8.5GB of data on to the disc. This is equivalent to 4 hours of high-resolution DVD image; 16 hours of VHS quality image or 120 hours of MP3 music. RITEK DVD+R DL 16X offers a substantial increase in data/image/music burning speed and convenience for the consumers and it is most suitable for company or individual use when there is a need for backup for massive amount of data. With RITEK DVD+R DL 16X, the days of long waiting time for data backup are over.

Ricoh can't seem to get the product out to market for some reason.... I don't think that their "launch" really counts :P

Not many burners are capable of 16X DL are they? Samsung is the only one I know of. Also, both Ricoh/Ritek have quite sketchy product quality IMO. Ricoh used to make some decent 4&8X SL media, but I've stayed away from all their 16X. I've not given Ritek the time of day since their self destructing G05 media.
