12x burners with burn-proof for less than 300DM
Prices are falling in all market segments and the burners are not excluded. The chain of branches 'Staples' offers a 12x/10x/32x NoName burner (probably LiteOn or AOpen) in a bundle with 50 blanks for 349 DM in 56 branches nationwide.
Both burner and blanks are also sold under the Memorex label. With a single CD price of around 60 marks, the burner only costs around DM 290. Since the device supports the relatively new 'Burn Proof' standard, burned blanks are a thing of the past. With this technology, the burner can remember the current position in the event of a 'buffer underrun' and continue the burning process there as soon as there is enough data in the cache again. Roxios Easy CD Creator version 4 and DirectCD are supplied as software.
