Verbatim External CD / DVD Writer TGP#353



Welcome to The Gadget Professor Show #353 hosted by Don Baine.Verbatim External Slimline CD/DVD Writer
Though CDs and DVDs are still among the most commonly used media types, more and more computer manufacturers are choosing to leave optical drives out of their new models. If you still use these media types, or even newer optical media types such as Blu-ray discs or M-Discs, you may find yourself in the position of needing to buy a separate optical drive, and there are several things to consider.
M DISC Compatibility
So, what exactly is M DISC? Unlike traditional optical discs, which utilize dyes that can break down over time, data stored on an M DISC is engraved on a patented inorganic write layer – it will not fade or deteriorate. This unique engraving process renders these archival grade discs practically impervious to environmental exposure, including light, temperature and humidity. ISO/IEC 16963 standard longevity tests have proven the durability of M DISC technology, and it withstood rigorous testing by the US Department of Defense. Based on ISO/IEC 16963 testing, M DISC media has a projected lifetime of several hundred years. Designed for widely distributed large data such as scientific images, video, and other commercial application object data, Verbatim M DISC media has storage capacities up to 100GB – allowing you to use fewer discs while archiving your files. M DISC BD-R media is compatible with the latest Blu-ray hardware from leading manufacturers – no special drives required for recording or playback. However, if you want to use M DISC DVD for archiving, you do need to select a drive that is M DISC compatible.

OctoPad TGP #344



Welcome to The Gadget Professor Show #344 hosted by Don Baine.
The OctoPad is the new way to support your audio, video and photographic equipment. It can be set up quickly with no fiddling around. And it stays where you put it.

The OctoPad is a completely new form concept for support equipment. It is a patent pending, weighted non-slip mat design offering far superior stability to that of existing mini tripods and suction cup supports. The OctoPad is the revolutionary first product from Octopus.Camera. It is a universal high stability support base incorporating a male 1/4-20 inch threaded bolt and custom designed, large capacity removable photographic ball head also with an adjustable 1/4-20 inch male threaded bolt connection interface. The OctoPad solves the three major complaints about these tripods and suction cup devices: Doesn’t tip over- or collapse under weight Doesn’t slip or slide- including on uneven or smooth surfaces Doesn’t lose suction- or come suddenly unattached High-Force Ball Head Clamps securely under all conditions with high wear resistance. Standard 1/4-20 Bolt Universal for attaching your own accessories. Anti-Skid Base Resistant to tipping or sliding under movement or vibration. Cable Strap Tuck cables under to keep them managed and safe from damage. Clip Grommet Use with carabiner or lanyard to secure your OctoPad. The OctoPad’s ¼-20 inch camera thread is a universal, worldwide standard connection for equipment mounting. Many audio, video and photographic devices have it built in already. Those that do not can be easily adapted with the addition of 3rd party accessories. This creates endless possibilities for supporting a broad base of gear in varied situations.

Adaptable and scalable, an OctoPad expands your creative options so you don’t have to compromise on results. One size fits all. You get the idea. It even fits in your pocket.
