I/OMagic Corporation, a provider of data storage and digital entertainment products, has begun shipping its new 8X External USB 2.0 Slim DVD Rewritable Drive into the North American retail marketplace.
The 8X External USB 2.0 Slim DVD Rewritable Drive is a dual-format, double-layer portable device that is compact (5.7" x 0.8" x 6.5") and lightweight (just over one pound with power supply and USB cable). The drive's dual-format technology allows users to read and write in most formats, including DVD+R and DVD+R double layer, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R, and CD-RW, as well as choose either a DVD or CD format, whichever is most compatible with a user's personal computers or home DVD players.
I/OMagic's new 8X External USB 2.0 Slim DVD Rewritable Drive will write at 8X speeds using DVD+R and DVD-R media, at 4X for DVD+RW and DVD-RW media, and at 2.4X speeds using DVD+R double layer media. The drive also includes software to enable users to create videos, burn DVDs and CDs in various popular formats, and play as well as store, music, photos and movies on either DVDs or CDs. I/OMagic's 8X External USB 2.0 Slim DVD Rewritable Drive supports Windows XP/2000/Me/98SE operating systems.
I/OMagic has started shipping the 8X External USB 2.0 Slim DVD Rewritable Drive to Staples stores this week with an introductory suggested retail price of $199.99.
