Dual Layer Media

How long have dual layer DVD burners been on the market? I installed a new Lite-On DL DVD burner in the Dimension yesterday and then I drove(25 minute drive) to Best Buy to pick up some media for it.

Lo and behold, dual layer media isn’t out to mass market yet. Figuring they must be nuts, I walked next door to Circuit City to only have it confirmed.

The trip wasn’t a total waste as I picked up a few good deals on some movies I’ve been wanting.

When I got back home, I went on an online foxhunt to find some media. I ended up finding it at Amazon, but dang, this stuff is expensive. Looks like I’ll be waiting awhile before I’m using the new burner to it’s fullest extent.
