    They're coming out with the 8X speed burner by the end of the year, so prices on slower 4X media should be dropping too.

    Optorite introduces the DD0401 8x Dual DVD burner
    Thursday, 9 October 2003

    Optorite continues its successful DVD recorder product line with the new Optorite DD0401. The DVD±RW drive will offer 8x DVD+R recording as well as improved HD-BURN performance for CD-R media.
    Based on Sanyo's technology, the DD0401 uses both chipset and PUH provided by Sanyo, but the mechanism is completely developed by Optorite.

    The basic specifications of the drive include 8x writing for DVD+R, 4x for DVD+RW and DVD-R, and 2x for DVD-RW. The maximum reading speed for DVD-ROM is set to 12x. In addition, the DD0401 offers 40x/ 24x/40x capabilities as a CD-RW drive. BURN-Proof technology is also available to prevent Buffer Under Run errors.

    The DD0401 features the HD-BURN technology, allowing recording twice the capacity of CD-R media. Considering the increased capacities achieved, DD0401 writes HD-BURN at 24x and reads at 78x.

    Availability of the drive is expected in a couple of months, at a very aggressive price.

    Still yet to see someone offer 8x writing on -R discs, looks like we'll have to wait till Pioneer release their dual 8x burner.
    And of course the fact 8x-certified media of +/- type isn't available yet doesn't help.

    They are being manufactured by Ritek for Conrexx for a 'yet to be disclosed' OEM customer. They will be the only people in the UK to hae official Grade A premieum Ritek at 8x DVD-R. They will be available at the end of the year and should coincide with the launch of the Pioneer DVR107, though it may be out a bit before.
