this is a good thing. this means that manufacturers have to push for more features. well, i guess what i mean is that companies will soon only make dual layered burners. i have a feeling dvd9 media prices are going to rapidly fall at a specific point. theyve been the same for a long time, but i have a feeling once it falls over the edge prices will drop rather quickly.

The biggest reason why technology differs in other markets is because of this simple scenario… Everybody is burning CDs, which cost around $50 and discs average $.25 each.

But the cost cutter often means some companies lose profit in an effort to be the #1 seller hoping that title will lead them to future profit.
