ASUS announced the new SBC-06D1S-U and the SDR-08D1-U slim-type external optical disc drives, designed to provide optimized reading and writing capabilities.
ASUS external slim drives are recognized for functionality and fetching looks.
With the SBC-06D1S-U, ASUS brings together technology and aesthetics in a single product. Convenient dual placement options help users save space while lending sophistication to any work environment. The new drive even offers ASUS? BluTuner, allowing for five levels of display brightness while reading Blu-ray discs or reading and writing DVD and CD media.
The ASUS SBC-06D1S-U external slim-type optical disc drive performs at six times the standard Blu-ray reading speed. It features True Theater High Definition (TTHD) technology, a suite of advanced video enhancements that delivers HD quality for DVD playback on PC-based home theater systems.
The drive also supports disc encryption, allowing users to protect an entire disc or even individual files with a pre-determined password. Additionally, users can choose to hide files to prevent data from being tampered with.
The drag and burn interface that accompanies the new drive takes the hassle out of data backup and media storage.
The ASUS SDR-08D1-U presents a slim design, offering advanced portability to users. The top-loading drive is utilizing the E-Green engine, which automatically shuts down drive activity when users leave the drive idle for two minutes or more.
It also comes with the E-Media software routine, which boosts reading and copying performance. E-Media automatically detects the user?s needs based on the in-drive media, optimizing performance for each given task. Users thus benefit from significantly reduced spinning noise as well as faster copy speeds.
