ASUS unveils two new DVD burners

Posted on Monday, February 18 2008 @ 00:52:30 CET by


Asus has released two new 5x DVD-RW DL optical drives, one that uses PATA and one with SATA.
The ASUS DVD-E818A2 and ASUS DVD-E818A2T provide leading-edge multimedia experiences with the ability to read 5X DVD-RW DL – the brand new industry format. With this support, users will be able to view high quality videos directly burnt into DVDs from camcorders and obtain fabulous playback capacities. It also allows users to access all CDs, DVD-ROM/DVD±R/ DVD±RW/DVD-RAM and DVD-Video discs.

The ASUS DVD-E818A2/A2T optical drives are designed to provide users with versatile and fast data transfer speeds with DVD-ROM max data transfer rates of 24930 KB/s (18X), and CD-ROM max data transfer rates of 7200 KB/s (48X). Access times are also shortened with fast random access times for DVD access at 105 ms versus typical 95 ms CD access times.

The innovative ASUS exclusive QuieTrack technology is developed to dampen drive noise in every conceivable fashion while improving stability, and consists of two revolutionary features:

Airflow Field Modification (AFFM): Noise and vibration are two major headaches users encounter when using a high-speed drive. AFFM is designed to change the uneven airflow field inside the drive to a balanced pressure distribution that leads to a quiet and stable operation.

The AVRS technology is designed to minimize the vibration caused by the spindle motor and resonance between components as well as the drive and PC cases. AVRS is designed to reduce vibration and noise induced by unbalanced mass of rotating machinery. With AVRS, ASUS DVD-E818A2 and ASUS DVD-E818A2T provides high readability and playability.

The ASUS DVD-E818A2 and ASUS DVD-E818A2T also provide users with many other features to allow users ease and convenience during usage. Some of these features include the support for Speed Auto-Switch Function, High Speed CD-Audio Playback, High Speed Digital Audio Extraction, the choice to mount the drives vertically or horizontally, the unique dust resistance design, as well as support for changeable panels.
