Pioneer: The DVR-XD08, Pioneer’s new slim, portable DVD and CD writer, is now available across Europe.
Big on performance, it features a a sleek, high-gloss black casing and writes at speeds of up to 8X on DVD-R/+R and 6X on Dual/Double Layer (DL) DVDs and 24X to CD.
And with DL media offering 8.5GB storage capacity and technologies to reduce power consumption, the easily-connected (through USB 2.0) portable writer is ideal for users of laptops and compact netbook PCs that typically don’t include optical drives.
The DVR-XD08 supports “bus-powered” reading and writing and operates efficiently to extend the battery life of notebooks when not connected to a mains supply.
It also includes a range of proprietary Pioneer technologies to reduce noise, cut vibration and ensure robust operation which advance performance over comparable products.
Highlights of these features include:
- A Multi-Effect Liquid Crystal Tilt Compensator: it operates at high speed – even on Dual Layer/Double Layer media types – to ensure precise writing to the disc by automatically compensating for discs that are warped or of uneven thickness
- A highly efficient Optical Pick-Up (OPU) unit
- Performance Adjusting Firmware: this optimises the disc’s rotation speed depending on the user’s application – for example, if watching a movie or listening to music, the disc velocity is reduced keeping background noise to a minimum
