Data storage manufacturer Verbatim has upgraded its range of CopySmartPlus manual-load DVD copiers. Featuring a high-speed DVD-ROM reader and a built-in controller, models are available with three, five or seven target DVD recording drives. All models are standalone — which means there is no need to tie up your PC while copying discs — and the top-of-the-range DVD-R 7 produces about 28 4.7GB DVDs per hour. All CopySmartPlus DVD-R Towers incorporate Pioneer recording drives capable of recording 4x DVD-R, 2x DVD-RW, 16x CD-R and 8x CD-RW. A four-button LCD display interface guides users through all procedures and pressing one button allows simultaneous copying to all DVD recorders.
Available through authorised Verbatim resellers, the three, five and seven drive units have recommended retail prices of $3999, $5999 and $7999 respectively.
