Macintosh owners will soon be able to reap the benefits of Sony's latest generation of DVD burners with the new Mac-compatible DRX-810UL/T model. The external double and dual-layer DVD drive will begin shipping next month with Roxio's Toast 6 Lite for Mac compatibility.
With the new DRX-810UL/T DVD burner and Toast 6 Lite software, Mac users will be able to store and share home movies, digital photos, and music at 8X maximum for DVD+R Double Layer (DL) recording speed, enabling them to burn up to 8.5GB of video, data, music or images on compatible media in about fifteen minutes.
The drive also supports 4X DVD-R DL, 16X DVD±R, 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 48X CD-R and 32X CD-RW recording speeds. It also features a unique vertical design for easy placement and portability, and offers connectivity with both i.LINK (FireWire/IEEE 1394) and hi-speed USB (USB 2.0) digital interfaces for simple set-up and maximum flexibility. In addition to the Toast application, the drive comes bundled with a feature-rich software suite from Nero for Microsoft Windows. The DRX-810UL/T model will be available in November for less than $150.
