Default Toshiba Brings World’s First(*1) Slim HD DVD-RW Drive to Laptops

Toshiba today announced the world’s first*1 slim HD DVD-RW drive for notebook PCs that can read and write and rewrite to HD DVD-RW discs, and read and write to HD DVD-R discs and to standard DVD and CD discs. Sample shipments of the new drive are scheduled to start next month.

The new SD-L912A makes it possible to backup the large capacities of PC hard drives to the reusable format of HD DVD-RW discs, and store data-rich HD digital content. The drive’s ability to rewrite to HD DVD-RW also opens the way to a wide range of applications involving storage and rewriting of large volumes of data.

The new product also supports high speed read and write*2 for standard DVD and CD discs, and the complete library of different DVD and CD formats.

The new drive is compliant with the EU RoHS*3 directive on environmentally hazardous substances, which came into force in July 2006.

Toshiba will feature the new drive at the Toshiba Digital Media Network Taiwan Corporation booth (booth: B1234) at Computex 2007, which will be held in Taipei, Taiwan from June 5 to 9.

Agreed. I would like a HD-DVD reader/burner for my desktop since my computer screen is almost as good as my HDTV.
