Samsung reveals DVD writer companion for ultrabooks

Samsung announces the SE-218CB, a new external DVD burner for ultrabooks. The new device is 18 percent thinner and 8 percent lighter than Samsung's entry-level DVD writer lineup, it measures 148mm x 14mm x 143mm and has a stylish metallic finish.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in digital media and convergence technologies, announced today its newest ultra-slim portable DVD writer, the SE-218CB optical disc drive (ODD) with a sleeker design and mobile size for Ultrabook users on-the-go.

Featuring a compact size that is approximately 18 percent thinner, and 8 percent lighter than Samsung’s entry level DVD writer line-up, the SE-218CB is built to accommodate the growing need for external ODDs that can be easily transported for today’s mobile lifestyle. Measuring 148x14x143mm, the SE-218CB is an ideal companion for Ultrabooks™ users that need to access optical media.

With the SE-218CB, consumers not only benefit by having easy access to stored documents, photos and multimedia content. With its Smart Power Technology the drive’s low-power consumption and ability to connect using a single USB port ensures consumers will have a flexible solution that does not overly tax Ultrabook’s battery while outside the home or office. With the help of Samsung’s Smart Power Technology, SE-218CB can also act as a portable hard disk drive for tablets with available USB connections. Coupled with Samsung’s innovative AV Connectivity™, this ensures tablet users can now enjoy stored multimedia content.

Along with its flexible connectivity options, the SE-218CB is equipped with Smart Archive Technology™ to safely store precious personal data. Unlike other existing optical disc archive technologies, this feature offers a recording quality that is optimized for DVDs used to store content for an extended time. The technology follows standard DVD formatting that is compatible with both archival discs (ISO10995 standard) and qualified normal discs.

This latest drive is engineered to be compatible with all major operating systems including the new Windows 8 and latest Mac OS versions. Capable of reading and writing files at a variety of speeds across different data media types, the SE-218CB includes Buffer Under Run technology to prevent errors that can be caused when writing speeds exceed data transfer speeds, while also enabling PC multi-tasking.

As with all Samsung products, the SE-218CB is eco-friendly, manufactured with lead-free soldering technology that restricts the use of harmful materials such as Pb, cd, cr+6, Hg, PBBs and PBDE.

The SE-218CB is available in various metallic finishes that match perfectly with today’s Ultrabook™ models. Samsung is looking to work with PC makers who would like to take this metallic finished drive as a favorable Ultrabook™ accessory. The drive will be on display at the Samsung booth at CES 2013, taking place Jan. 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas.
