TC Mag spotted Hong Kong-based AMEX has introduced a very slim slot-loading external Blu-ray burner. It supports ECO S.M.A.R.T. technology for reduced power consumption, but unfortunately it still costs $599.
The drive comes in black and white, measures 140 x 143 x 16 mm and weights just 360 grams, has USB 2.0 connectivity and provides write speeds of 4x for BD-RE/-R (SL), 2x for BD-RE/-R (DL), 8x for DVD+/-R and DVD+/-RW, 5x for DVD-RAM, 4x for DVD+/-R DL, 24x for CD-R and 16x for CD-RW.
