Dual-Layer Standard May Disappear Soon
Anonymous Reader writes "Dual-Layered (DL) DVD writers are still a bit expensive, but the question of concern is the media prices. The price per DL media averages out to $10.00, which is shockingly high. We talked to manufacturers at this yearâs CES about prices and what they thought about DL media in general. The replies we received were far from positive and disappointing. According to a few blank media providers, DL standard may not have a bright future ahead of it. The reason is the upcoming Blu-Ray and HD DVD standards that are supported by worldâs top most corporations."
