Verbatim® Now Shipping Blu-ray Re-Writable Double Layer (BD-RE DL) Discs Nationwide Re-writable Blu-ray discs offer flexibility to add or overwrite high-capacity video, music and data files – doubling the storage capacity (up to 50GB) of standard BD-RE discs Charlotte, NC, March 1, 2011 – Verbatim, an industry pioneer and the world’s number one brand leader in CD, DVD, and Blu-ray media, is now shipping its Blu-ray Re-Writable Double Layer (BD-RE DL) discs nationwide. Compatible with standard Blu-ray players and recorders from leading manufactuers, these BD-RE DL discs are re-writable up to 1,000 times and can support up to 1080p resolution videos and multiple audio formats. Designed specifically for high definition video and audio data, these double-layer discs can support storage capacities of up to 50GB – twice that of a single-layer disc. Plus, Verbatim treats these discs with its own proprietary HardCoat™ technology to protect against scratches, fingerprints and dust build-up, reducing playback and recording errors.
Up to a 1000 times? really? i doubt it.
I've always put my faith in verbatim dual layer disks...when buring videos in excess of 4.7 gbs (school projects and what not) Hell, even a few backups here and there....but a 1000 times rewrite? i dont think so.
If a 25 pack of dvd dl's a couple of years cost me like $60 (and they still sell for around the same price).... i'm sure that these BD's probably cost a lot more. Its cheaper to buy a hdd imo. 2tb hard drives can now be found for as little as $80 if not lower.
2000gb's / 50gb/disk = 40 bluray discs.
I'm pretty sure 40 BD's will cost more than $80
I think physical disks are meh.... if anything we should start selling everything on flash based devices. For example, buying a dvd (gets scratched, degrades over time etc) they should sell it on like secure sd cards or some other flash memory based device.
Just my humble two cents.
