Lite-On ups DVD burner speed

Wed Jan 24 2007, 15:20
OPTICAL DRIVE MANUFACTURER Lite-On IT has announced two new products to its line of 20x DVD writers, the LH-20A1S and the equally catchily titled LH-20A1PU.

The LH-20A1S is the world's verily first 20x DVD burner with a Serial ATA interface, brags the company, mentioning that the internal drive is designed for "advanced computer enthusiasts".


Bear in mind the SATA interface stamps out performance bottlenecking by offering a generous 150MB/s data transfer rate, at least, Lite-On proclaims.

The bugger's not too pricey either, coming onto the market mid-February for the end user price of 32 quids.

Also announced, the LH-20A1PU (pronounced "twenty ay-one poo," we assume) is another first for the 20x DVD burning market, being the first external 20x burner released thus far.


The product comes packing Lite-On IT's EZ-DUB tech, which allows for a one-touch data transfer using buttons on the drive's casing itself.

As would be expected, with a USB 2.0 connection the drive's a fast 'un. Ish. µ
