New BD-ROMs, DVD and Blu-ray Burners For 2008

BD-ROM drives as well as new DVD burners offering faster DVD R DL recording speeds are expected become mainstream in 2008.

With the DVD burning speeds to reach their limits at 20X, manufacturers of optical disc drives are expected to offer variations of their existing DVD burner models in 2008, mainly supporting higher recording speeds for DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media.

Korean Samsung Electronics will offer the Super-WriteMaster SH-S223 later this year which differentiates from competition with its 22X DVD±R recording.

Pioneer is expected to release the DVR-116/116D (PATA) and DVR-216/216D (SATA) series of DVD burners in late June.

HP and Asus are also expected to release BD-ROM drives in the second quarter or later in 2008, according to

Japanese Pioneer is expected to release new Blu-ray drives at the second half of this year. Both combo and writers will appear offering increases in the BD / DVD writing speeds. They will be the company?s first drives to offer writing to BD-R DL and BD-RE DL media as well as support for the new LTH (Low-to High) Blu-ray media. Pioneer is also expected to offer a FW update for the company's current drives to support LTH.
