Finally, NEC ND-2300A 8x DVD+R writer was displayed at CEATEC 2003 in Japan along with several 8x DVD+R media products from Ritek, Prodisc, CMC Magnetics, and a few others and NEC ND-5100A 4x slim-type DVD+R writer. ND-2300A has the following specifications.

8x DVD+R write
4x DVD-R write
4x DVD+RW write
2x DVD-R write
32x CD-R write
16x CD-RW write

As more manufacturers are introducing 8x-capable DVD media, we can expect more of the average optical disk drive users will switch to 8x DVD recording in the coming months.

Ian at CDRLabs points out that the drive used to write to dual-layer DVD+R has HP 400i on it.

I wish I were there today.
