Delkin Devices, Inc. has just announced the release of the company's latest device - a 4x external disc drive capable of reading and writing to Blu-ray media.
Right on the heels of the company's release of its Archival Gold Blu-ray discs
, this new drive is addressed to photographers who need to preserve large quantities of data.
Delkin's new external drive, which is compatible with the latest BD-R technology, matches the company's Archival Gold BD-R 4x write speed providing users with the fastest method of archiving their images. The drive attaches to desktop or laptop computers through Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and comes with recording software, a free Archival Gold BD-R disc and a padded carrying case. Mac users with OS 10.5.4+ do not need any software to read or write BD-R media.
Delkin claims that its Archival Gold Blu-ray discs feature an 200 year longevity rating, as well as a market-leading 4x write speed.
The drive's MSRP is $549.99.
