Samsung Introduces New External Optical Disc Drives for Ultrabooks
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in digital media and
convergence technologies, announced today its newest ultra-slim portable
DVD writers, the SE-218GN and SE-208GB optical disc drives (ODDs) with a
sleeker design and mobile size for Ultrabook™ users on-the-go.
Measuring 148.6 x 14 x 146mm (SE-208GB) and 148 x 14.4 x 143(SE-218GN),
the drives are ideal for Ultrabook™ users that need optical media for
easy access to stored documents, photos and multimedia content. These
new drives feature a new external ODD design by placing the eject button
on top of the case to maximize the ease of pressing the eject button
instead of on the front bezel.
With its Smart Power Technology™ the drives' low-power consumption and
ability to connect using a single USB port ensures mobile consumers will
have a flexible solution that does not overly tax the Ultrabook's
battery while outside the home or office. Samsung's Smart Power
Technology™ enables both drives to act as a portable hard disk drive for
tablets with available USB connections. Coupled with Samsung's
innovative AV Connectivity™, tablet users can now enjoy stored
Along with its flexible connectivity options, the drivs are equipped
with Smart Archive Technology™ to safely store precious personal data.
Unlike other existing optical disc archive technologies, this feature
offers a recording quality that is optimized for DVDs that are used to
store content for an extended time. The technology follows standard DVD
formatting that is compatible with M-discs, archival discs (ISO10995
standard) as well as qualified normal discs.
The new drives are engineered to be compatible with all major operating
systems including the new Windows 8 and latest Mac OS versions. Capable
of reading and writing files at a variety of speeds across different
data media types, the drives include Buffer Under Run technology to
prevent errors that can be caused when writing speeds exceed data
transfer speeds, while also enabling PC multi-tasking.
As with all Samsung products, the SE-218GN and SE-208GB are
eco-friendly, manufactured with lead-free soldering technology that
restricts the use of harmful materials such as Pb, cd, cr+6, Hg, PBBs
