Toshiba Introduces SD-R5372 16X +R & 5X DL Drive!


Toshiba Storage Device Division (SDD) today introduced a new double-layer, dual-format DVD recordable drive that tops the market in DVD+R double-layer write speeds at 5X!

The first DVD recordable drive from Toshiba Samsung Storage Technologies (TSST), the SD-R5372 also features a speedy 16X DVD+R specification that enables easy DVD creation. The double-layer media capability gives consumers twice the storage capacity of a current DVD and 12 times the capacity of a CD at 8.5GB for a wide range of video, music, image and data storage applications.

"The popularity of video and music content management is driving the need for more robust optical storage solutions to keep pace with consumer interest," said Maciek Brzeski, vice president of marketing at Toshiba SDD. "This drive is a workhorse with speed, capacity and multiple formats that make DVD and CD creation a snap for users."

The SD-R5372 incorporates technology advancements that deliver this increased performance, including:

* A power control system that adjusts speeds to create optimum writing conditions on each layer
* A new high-power laser in the pick-up head for fast writing to double-layer media
* A unique optimized write strategy that delivers fast writing on both dual-layer and 16X DVD+R media

The SD-R5372 will be available in October through distribution or in a retail kit with video editing, data back-up and CD creation software. To purchase the kit, visit www.shoptoshiba.com, or for more information on Toshiba?s DVD recordable technology, visit www.sdd.toshiba.com.
