BenQ Releases EW164B External USB 2.0 DVD ReWriter

BenQ recently released the EW164B external DVD ReWriter aimed at providing customers with reliable optical writing and hassle-free storage functions.

Equipped with BenQ's proprietary SolidBurn Technology, the EW164B DVD ReWriter enables a faster burning speed while maintaining an excellent burning quality. With SolidBurn, the EW164B is able to apply its own Self-Learning Writing Strategy algorithm to allow unknown DVD±R media to be written with increased quality. So there is no need for users to update the media support list in their DVD drive as the drive keeps itself up-to-date and ensures best writing quality on all DVD±R media. Better yet, SolidBurn supports the Over-Speed Burning that allows you to burn a 4x or 8x DVD±R disc at 8x or higher speeds.

Users can choose to activate or deactivate the SolidBurn Technology and Over Speed Burning feature through the QSuite 2.0 application interface. BenQ QSuite 2.0 offers four built-in functions: Book Type Management, QScan, Test Write, WOPC enable / disable. In addition, the QSuite 2.0 allows user to simulate writing on DVD+R / +RW / +R DL media. The software is available for downloading at BenQ's Download Center

The EW164B DVD ReWriter supports both DVD+R and DVD-R Double Layer recording at 8x and 4x respectively, and features a USB2.0 interface for easy plug and play.

The drive will be launched first in the Taiwan market later this month at an attractive retail price of US$118.
