Limits For DVD Burn Speeds?

Remember what I was saying here? Well, I may have spoken too soon.

"[COLOR=#1951B9]Industry executives say that the newest 16X DVD burners that will ship this fall will run into the same physical limits as CD-ROM drives, ending the "X race" of faster and faster speeds. Manufacturers will still have some leeway to charge higher prices for dual-layer DVD burning capabilities, but for many, a DVD burner will become a commodity product later this fall. For the first time in more than a decade, moreover, the optical storage industry also won't have a clear-cut path leading toward a next-generation storage medium.[/COLOR]"

A pretty interesting read here.

Time to move on to a new technology, instead of rehashing these worthless optical disc mediums.Records went out of style a very long time ago...It's amazing we are still using the same method of storing audio since its inception when the first record was played. No matter how much we apply technology to it, it is still the same crap that was around 100 years ago.
