Sony Electronics has introduced its 10th generation of DVD burners: the internal DRU-810A and external DRX-810UL models. The units support the 8x DVD+R Double Layer (DL) recording speed and can burn up to 8.5 GB of video, data, music or images on compatible media in about 15 minutes.
The 810 series of DVD burners also features 4X DVD-R DL, 16X DVD±R, 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 48X CD-R and 32X CD-RW recording. The drives come bundled with a software package suite from Nero for burning, authoring and editing home movies, creating digital scrapbooks, and backing up critical data.
The internal DRU-810A drive comes with an ATAPI interface for easy installation inside a PC and includes a black replacement bezel for those with black-colored PC cases. The external DRX-810UL drive features a vertical design and offers connectivity with both i.LINK (IEEE 1394) and hi-speed USB (USB 2.0) digital interfaces for simple set-up and maximum flexibility.
The internal DRU-810A will be available next month for about $100, while the external DRX-810UL is expected to ship in October for around $150. Sony DVD/CD rewritable drives are sold through SonyStyle.com, at Sony Style retail stores (www.sonystyle.com/retail) and at Sony Electronics authorized resellers and retailers nationwide, mail order catalogs, and select online shopping sites.
