DVDs Last Twice As Long As Standard Discs

Mitsubishi ARLEDIA DVDs Last Twice As Long As Standard Discs

Mitsubishi ARLEDIA

By Luke Anderson

I’ve really never put much thought into how I store my DVDs and CDs. Movies are stored in their original boxes in cabinets sitting in my living room. Most CDs are either strewn about on my desk or arranged neatly in binders. Unfortunately none of these methods is all that great for long term disc storge.

Mitsubishi has created the ARLEDIA DVD-R discs that are said to have twice the life expectancy of regular DVDs. They accomplish this by using a gold and silver reflective film which prevents oxidation. No word on pricing or availability.
