HLDS Boosts Blu-Ray Burning Speed at 6x


Hitachi LG Data Storage (HLDS) plans to release a new Blu-Ray burner in the following months. The new GGW-H20N offers support for Lightscribe and 6x recording for Blu-Ray recordable media.

HLDS' development department showcased the upcoming GGW-H20N and GGC-H20N Blu-Ray drives in Computex tech show in Taipei a few weeks ago.

The new GGW-H20L is the successor of the currently available GGW-H10N Super-multi Blue Blu-Ray /HD DVD combo drive. Basic specifications include 6x burning for BD-R media using the CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) writing strategy, 3x HD DVD-ROM reading, 16x writing for DVD+/-R media and 40x for CD-R. Another strong advantage of the new drive is the support for 4x BD-R DL (50GB) burning, which means that you will be able to write approximately 46 GB of data in less than 50 minutes. Meanwhile, the BD-RE burning speed is again set at 2x.

HLDS also plans to release a Blu-Ray/HD DVD reader, keeping up with the demand for more affordable drives for entertainment PCs. The new GGC-H20L will offer 6x reading speed for BD-ROM, 3x for HD DVD-ROM and Lightscribe. The drive will also be able to write on DVD+/-R at 16x and on CD-R media at 40x.

Both SATA drives are currently under development. Shipments are expected to start by the end of July. HLDS has not officially confirmed pricing details for the new drives. However, the GGW-H20L is expected to be priced competitively to any BD Drive currently available on the market, while the BD/HD DVD reader model (GGC-H20L) is also expected to cost significantly less.
