HP announces industry's first DVD+RW drive

"The new HP DVD Writer 3100i drive reads and writes to DVD+RW discs, which have 3.0GB of storage capacity, which is equivalent to 100 minutes of high-quality digital video. In addition to DVD+RW media, the HP DVD Writer 3100i can read DVD-ROM, DVD movie, CD-RW, CD-Recordable (CD-R), CD-ROM and CD audio. DVD+RW discs provide users with the familiar CD experience and do not require a cartridge. DVD+RW discs can be read by DVD-ROM drives at virtually no additional cost. Unlike other rewritable DVD formats, such as DVD-RAM, the new HP DVD+RW drive uses disc media, similar to a CDs. DVD-RAMs require a media cartridge and therefore have limited compatibility. They cannot be read in a DVD-ROM drive unless the drive is altered to accept a cartridge or the cartridge is removed, which compromises the integrity of the disc. Based on capacity per disc, DVD+RW media provides users with a huge cost benefit over other storage alternatives. At approximately $30 per DVD+RW disc, the cost per MB is less than a penny. The HP DVD Writer 3100i is an internal, Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) drive that reads and writes DVD+RW media at a speed of 1.25X or 1.7MB/s, which is equivalent to 11X CD-RW write speed. The drive uses constant angular velocity (CAV), which technically gives DVD+RW a throughput advantage over DVD-RAM. Adaptec's Direct DVD, which lets users drag and drop files to DVD disk from Microsoft Windows Explorer or save directly from any application, is included with the drive. The product is expected to begin shipping worldwide this fall. The expected U.S. street price is $699.."
