Triple Layer 51Gb HD DVD

Toshiba have created a 51Gb HD DVD disc. The current Blu-ray discs are running at 50Gb. This is a nice leap forwards for the HD DVD format. Unfortunatly it still isnt too close to the real potential of a BD type disc which has the potential of running at 200Gb of storage with 8 layers. No doubt the battle will continue between the 2 formats and I guess it will come down to what you really need at the end of the day. 200Gb would work well for many things such as backing up images, movies and server images but along with all that data in one place comes a risk of loosing it 😉 Better keep it safe as that would be a killer amount of data to get in the wrong hands.
