"..Memorex again flexes its leadership muscles in the blank media arena with the introduction of new Platinum Certified 12X CD-R media.
New super fast 12X CD-R drive "burners"' are emerging as the next standard in CD recording. But they've created a need for high-performance blank CD-R media that can keep pace. Memorex steps into the breech with 12X media available in 5- and 10-pack configurations.
Memorex Platinum Certified CD-R media features 650 MB of storage capacity (74-minute record time), and 200 years of archive life. 12X CD-R's are "backward" compatible'' with 4X and 8X speed machines. Two configurations are available. The 12X CD-R 5-Pack has a suggested retail price (MSRP) of $12.99. The 10-Pack carries an MSRP of $24.99. Both will be available in January 2000.."
