Hot New Products From Memorex That Dads and Grads Can Really Use

M-Flyer, 16X External DVD Recorder and Director's Cut Mini DVDs Deliver the Latest Must-Have Technologies

CERRITOS, Calif., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Dad doesn't really need another tie, and your favorite graduate will likely lose that fancy pen. But hot new gadgets from Memorex are what Dads and Grads can really use this year. From the M-Flyer(TM) USB flash drive, to the 16x External DVD Recorder, to fun and functional Director's Cut Mini DVDs, Memorex delivers the high-tech products Dads and Grads are sure to love.

M-Flyer(TM)

Memorex takes mobile storage to new heights with M-Flyer, the newest member of its TravelDrive(TM) family of USB 2.0 flash drives. Dad can always keep digital pictures of the kids close at hand, and the new Grad can impress the boss with instant access to important files, thanks to this executive-style USB flash drive. M-Flyer features a sleek and aerodynamic design, top-of-the-line speeds and capacities, a patented retractable USB connector, software suite, and a number of convenience accessories. Similar to Memorex's other TravelDrive flash drive products, M-Flyer is ideal for transferring all types of digital files from computer to computer -- even from Mac to PC -- and back again.

Just as its sleek, aerodynamic look harkens to the name, M-Flyer soars to the top of the USB flash drive market with category-leading file transfer speeds. The brushed aluminum casing and elegant curves of M-Flyer reinforce the upscale image of this premium product, which is ideal for executives and anyone with discriminating tastes about their high-tech gear. M-Flyer has a suggested retail price of $69.99 for 512MB of capacity, $119.99 for 1GB of capacity, and $219.99 for 2GB of capacity.

16X Dual-Format, Double-Layer External DVD Recorder

Recording, editing and saving home movies, precious photos and important data is fast and easy with the industry's top external DVD recorder. Named the number one external drive by PC World and the "Best Buy" in its May 2005 issue, this drive is sure to impress Dads and Grads with the latest recording speeds; double-layer technology; top of the line software suite; and sleek, stackable exterior housing.

This Memorex drive burns single-layer DVD+R/-R discs at speeds up to 16X and new double-layer DVD+R9 discs at speeds up to 4X. That means that Dads and Grads with no time to spare can burn DVD+R and DVD-R discs in just seven short minutes -- and a full DVD+R9 disc in about 50 minutes. They can also burn up to 8.5 GB of extended length movies, music and photos onto double-layer discs, which provide 80 percent more recording capacity compared to single-layer discs. The Memorex 16X Dual-Format, Double-Layer external drive is available at an estimated retail price of $179.99.

Director's Cut Mini DVDs

For the Dad or Grad who plans to video tape summer vacation adventures, Director's Cut Mini DVDs come packaged in a movie reel-style metal tin and include several safeguards that help eliminate threats to DVD preservation.

At eight centimeters in diameter, Director's Cut Mini DVD-R discs record up to 30 minutes of video and are ideal for use with direct-to-DVD camcorders like the Sony Handycam(R). The discs also provide up to 1.4 GB of mobile storage for multimedia presentations, videos and MP3 files. For fun and style, the DVDs feature a Hollywood-themed disc print that resembles a movie director's marker board.

A unique movie reel-style, metal storage tin comes with every package of Director's Cut media. Reminiscent of movie vault storage, these tins help maintain the integrity of important recordings by preventing exposure to light, one of the top threats to proper DVD preservation. Director's Cut DVDs also feature Memorex's DuraLayer(TM) technology, a special scratch-resistant hard coating that eliminates other threats to DVD preservation like dust, debris and rough handling.

Director's Cut DVDs are also available in a standard, full-sized DVD+R version that is ideal for transferring VHS tapes to DVD and saving home movies, in addition to archiving up to 4.7 GB of digital photos, music and data. A 10-pack of 1.4 GB Director's Cut Mini DVDs with movie-reel tin retails for a suggested price of $17.99. A 10-pack of standard 4.7 GB Director's Cut DVDs with movie-reel tin lists for $17.99.
