    The Japanese company Buffalo is again in the news for the launch of its new ultra-fast external DVD writer DVSM-U24U2. The Buffalo DVSM-U24U2 is an excellent writer which can write DVD+R/-R at up to 24x, DVD-RAM at up to 16x, DVD-R/+R DL and DVD+RW at up to 6x, DVD-RW at up to 6x, CD-R at up to 48x and CD-RW discs at 32x. The DVD burner measures 164 (W) x 50 (H) x 266 (D) mm, weights 1.7 kg, and uses USB 2.0 connection to transfer information. Along with it, Buffalo bundles CyberLink's PowerDirector 7, PowerProducer 5, PowerDVD 8, Power2Go 6, InstantBurn 5 and PowerBackup 2 software products. The Buffalo external DVD writer is expected to ship early next month with a price tag of about $130 / 95 Euro.

    24x DVD = 31.68MB/s. Thats really pushing the speeds US 2.0B can put out.

    Faster burning results in more jitter=error rate goes up on all of my drives

    Never have I thought "Man, I wish my 16x DVD burner would burn faster" I'd rather spend the money on an internal BluRay/HD-DVD drive, same price and all lol.
