100GB CD, DVD & Blu-ray Discs

Frequently Asked Questions about 100GB Blu-ray Discs

The Blu-ray optical disc format allows you to share your homemade videos, business presentations, or personal files with friends or colleagues. These affordable Blu-ray discs hold 100GB of data each. eBay has all kinds of storage solutions to match what you need.

What are some reasons to buy a 100GB Blu-ray?

The 100GB Blu-ray disc can store hours of both high-definition and ultra high-definition video at up to 60 frames per second. Whereas high-definition video only has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, ultra high-definition video has a display resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. With four times as many total pixels, ultra high-definition can display more detail for a more realistic image. Certain models of smartphones, digital cameras, and camcorders can record UHD videos. Once you shoot footage at an HD or UHD resolution, you can then transfer it to your computer and burn it to a disc. These Blu-ray discs can store 100GB of data because they have three separate layers embedded on top of each other. The top layers are semi-transparent, so the laser can read the layers underneath them.

How do you choose the right Blu-ray disc?

Blu-ray discs can come with a variety of features. Here is what you need to know about them:

  • Write Speeds - The write speed determines the length of time it takes to write data to a disc. If you are planning to fill up the entire disc, then it might be a good idea to select a higher write speed as it will take much less time.
  • Rewriting - Recordable discs marked as "BD-R" only allow you to write data once. All data on the disc is permanent. If you want to write data multiple times, then you will need to purchase a BD-RE disc, which stands for "recordable erasable." As the name implies, it erases the data every time you rewrite it.
  • Inkjet Printing - Some discs allow you to print high-quality artwork or text with an inkjet printer. If you are recording a movie or a presentation, then the customized artwork will help it appear more professional.
  • Packaging - Blu-ray discs can come in jewel cases, sleeves, or spindles. The spindles tend to provide the most number of blank discs per pack.
What kind of media player can read triple-layer Blu-ray discs?

To read and to write data, you will need a Blu-ray player or burner that is compatible with BD-XL discs. BD-XL refers to both triple-layer and quadruple-layered discs.
