Nice to see progress but I am sure they will be too rich for my blood. I wish I had a Blu-ray burner as it is so that I could perform an additional backup of my personal files on one disc.
I 2nd that draco, blu-ray is nice but still pricey.

can optical media please just die?!
The lifetime of pretty much any optical disc is barely a year with VERY light use. Why cant everyone just invest more in things like SSD's.
Because these things are still needed in the media world. Im not going to buy a movie on a SSD... lol. And yes you might say get a digital copy of it, well not everyone has access to this or enjoys this. I don't enjoy streaming it or waiting for it to download.
But one thing is, WHY? Is 100GB Disk really going to be usefull??? lol
I have heavily used optical media for 5+ years with no scratches or errors popping up. Do you store your discs on the floor... It is far better than a floppy disk and a hell of a lot easier to carry than 3 lb external hard drive. SSD's have a limited read/write cycle as well eventually they will die.
I wouldn't use it for file backup but I guess if movies ever needed this much room or you wanted to back up files and ship it somewhere it would be good.
The thread title really got me in here because I was wondering how something like a disc could be triple sided.
Ha, I second the triple sided comment, I did a double take. But I disagree with optical media dieing. Maybe I'm old fashioned but there is something reassuring about backing up a project on a dvd and storing it away. I like the idea that if someone steals my computer and external hard drive that they will most likely leave the random dvd's alone. Seriously though 100GB?? That is crazy.
Now you're just mashing it!
Every new technology is pricey, not to mention the fact that I am sure eventually a 4 layer one will be available, then this becomes last generation.
