Any day now, stores will be stocking Sony’s 5th generation dual format DVD burner, the DRU-700A (internal) and DRX-700UL (external). These new drives can record on the new DVD+R DL (Double Layer) disc, bringing the total burning capacity to 8.5GB vs. the current 4.7GB. Don’t expect 8x DL burning speeds yet, these drives can burn DL at 2.4x, 8x for DVD+R/-R, 4x for DVD+RW/-RW, and 40x CD-R/24x CD-RW. The internal model will cost about $200 and the external about $290 (street prices).
