Lite-on ships 'fastest' DVD rewriter

Lite-on today announced what it claims is the fastest DVD rewriter yet.

The SOHW-1673S internal drive provides 8x DVD+RW and 6x DVD-RW rewriting speeds, the company said. The drive also handled DVD-R and DVD+R at 16x, and dual-layer DVD+R at 4x, Lite-on added.

The unit connects over an Atapi/E-IDE interface, and incorporates a 2MB data buffer. It also features a "floating double suspension systems", Lite-on said, to reduce drive noise and vibration. The drive uses Lite-on's SmartBurn buffer underrun error prevention code and its Smart-X speed optimisation software. Lite-on said it will also bundle an array of DVD authoring and disc burning software, including PowerDVD, Nero Express 6 and Nero Vision Express.

The SOHW-1673S is available now for 65, but anyone buying before May won't receive the extra bezel set Lite-on said it plans to bundle from that date. The set will include black as well as standard white frontpieces.

Lite-on also said it will follow up today's launch with an external, USB 2.0 version of the drive, the SOHW-1673SX.
