LaCie Enhances Portable DVD±RW Drive with New Features and a New Look

Today LaCie announced the latest versions of its Portable DVD±RW Drive, design by Sam Hecht. Now with a sleek black finish, the award-winning LaCie Portable DVD±RW includes new multimedia burning solutions, allowing users to piece together sophisticated movie, music, and photo projects in a matter of minutes – creating customized CDs or DVDs wherever they go.

Featuring two versions for easy setup and seamless compatibility, users can choose from the multimedia burning solution for Mac or PC. The Windows version comes with Creator Suite 10, while the combined Mac and Windows version comes with Toast 9 Basic, as well as Creator Suite 10.
Additionally, it is USB bus-powered so only one cable is needed to start burning CDs and DVDs. The 8x drive is less than an inch tall and weighs under a pound—fitting perfectly into a bag, backpack, or briefcase.

"With the popularity of lightweight laptop computers and netbook solutions, which often exclude optical drives, users need an ultra-portable DVD±RW solution that will allow them to play, save, and share their multimedia collections," Christelle Dexet, Mutimedia Product Manager. "The new, black, Sam Hecht Portable DVD±RW offers mobility, simplicity, and of course style – without compromising the key features that complement their computing systems and their lifestyles."

The LaCie Portable DVD±RW drive is equipped with LightScribe – an innovative technology that allows you to burn silkscreen-quality labels directly onto CDs and DVDs with a laser instead of a printer.

The LaCie Portable DVD±RW will be available in versions for Mac and PC, through the LaCie Store Online, LaCie Reseller+ and LaCie Corner, starting at the suggested retail price of $89.99 VAT included.Source: LaCie

new look??? its still a rectangular box with a optical bay as far as im concerned. theres nothing new about it even if they threw half a million on it & embedded diamonds on it its still a rectangular box with an optical bay

Lacie BRICK on the other hand was new - external hard drives that looked like bits of LEGO that could stack & fit together the same way too if multiple external drives were owned.

most external drive caddys come in different sizes & colours theres nothing 'new' about them
