Mad Dog Multimedia today announced it is currently shipping its new MegaSTOR 6-in-1 16X Double Layer DVD +/- R +/- RW internal drive and will deliver the MegaSTOR 7-in-1 16X Double Layer external USB 2.0 model at the end of September.
Users can store up to 8.5 gigabytes of data on any double layer media and write to double layer media at 4x speeds, nearly twice as fast in double layer mode as most of its competitors.
Built for Today and Tomorrow's Media
The MegaSTOR 16X provides the widest media compatibility to date using standard -R, -RW, +R, +RW, media for building photo or audio libraries, video libraries for home PCs or DVD players, or storing up to 8.5 GB of valuable data on the latest double layer DVD DL media. MegaSTOR drives have a superior specification to industry giant Sony's DRU-710A and are backed by Mad Dog's industry-leading two-year warranty, twice as long as DRU-710A. In addition to a superior specification and warranty, the aggressively priced, versatile MegaSTOR 16X Double Layer 6 in 1 has a suggested retail price of $119.99, $60 less then the DRU-710A making it a sound investment today and for the future. Suggested retail price for the MegaSTOR 7 in 1 Double Layer 16X external USB 2.0 is $149.99.
Provides Superior Data Recording Accuracy
MegaSTOR 16X Double Layer drives offer the ultimate in data recording accuracy. In addition to buffer under run protection found standard with many DVD± RW drives, the Mad Dog Multimedia MegaSTOR 16X drives adjust writing speeds automatically through Active Optimized Power Control (Active OPC), ensuring the maximum accuracy when writing data to the media by monitoring both writing power and reflection of the media in use, calculating the optimum laser Power and adjusting it in real-time.
Compatible with All DVD Formats
In addition to unprecedented accuracy, MegaSTOR 16X Double Layer drives are highly flexible and will write to any certified single or double layer media. MegaSTOR 16X drives support Ritek DL at 4X nearly doubling the speed of other drives that only write to double layer media at 2.4X.
"The need for storage and the need for speed will only continue to increase as users store more large photo, music and video files or back up important personal or professional data," said Mike Dendo, president of Mad Dog Multimedia. "Our MegaSTOR 16X Double Layer drives give users the best of all worlds: Compatibility with media from standard DVD-ROM to the newest double layer media as well as self-monitoring utilities to prevent loss of precious data while recording. Moreover, we are again capitalizing on our industry leading cost structure and delivering this technology at very affordable prices."
