Samsung Electronics today announced a new slim external 3D Blu-ray combo, the SE-406A optical disk drive (ODD).
Featuring a sleek design with an anti-fingerprint surface, the SE-406A adds Blu-ray 3D to PC's. The new drive includes CyberLink TrueTheater software to test PC readiness for 3D and Blu-ray content. It also transforms 2D DVD movies into 3D. Beyond these features, the SE-406A reads Blu-ray discs and reads and writes CD/DVDs.
