    Japanese manufacturer Logitec (≠ Logitech) announced the production of two models of external DVD burners under the LDR-PMD8U2L BR/RD (black/red) model series. The drives are simply slim form-factor optical drives in a stylish brushed metal chassis. They measure 133.6 (W) x 160 (D) x 17.7 (H) mm, and weigh 415 g. The drives use the standard USB 2.0 interface for connectivity. They support write speeds of 8x for for DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RW media; 6x for dual-layer DVD+R, DVD-R media and 5x for DVD-RAM. CDs are written at speeds of up to 24x. The drives cost US $92 excl. taxes. The black model will hit stores later this month, while the red one follows in early January.

    "In the Japanese market, Logitech uses the brand name Logicool since a Logitec (ロジテック, Logitec?) that focuses on computer peripheral devices has existed in that country since 1982, and its parent company has used the Logitech brand name since 1974."

    "Logitech International S.A. was co-founded in Apples, Vaud, Switzerland, in 1981 by two Stanford Masters alumni, Daniel Borel and Pierluigi Zappacosta, and Giacomo Marini, formerly a manager at Olivetti."
