    Memorex Dual-X Dual Format DVD Recorder

    Manufactured and Provided by: Memorex

    Price: ~$150

    Memorex is a somewhat new player in the optical drive business. They only started manufacturing drives a few years ago. However, Memorex is very well known for their Blank CD Media. They have a reputation of selling exceptional quality blank CD-R’s and CD-RW’s at low prices.

    The Memorex Dual Format DVD Recorder basically has the same specifications as the TDK 440N. It can burn DVD+R/-R at 4x, DVD+RW at 2.4x, and DVD-RW at 2x. The CD speeds are 12x10x32x.
