BenQ Announces “Trio” BW1000 Blu-ray Writer

Postby Ian on Thu Mar 09, 2006 11:24 am

I might have to pick one of these up for myself. Unlike Pioneer's first Blu-ray writer, it supports DVD, BD and CD. Has Serial ATA too! :D

BenQ, a leading manufacturer of digital lifestyle devices, today announced its first “Trio” writer BW1000, a triple writer that encompasses BD, DVD and CD format support, which saves you from making any compromises among these technologies. BenQ BW1000 supports all Blu-ray Disc formats at 2X read and write, as well as the interface of the future – Serial ATA, which secures the data bandwidth while playing back high-definition contents, even for the most dynamical scenes. With BenQ’s BW1000, users can easily transfer high-definition home videos and art works to BD-R and BD-RE media, either 25GB or 50GB version, to share and store premium contents with convenience.

BenQ BW1000 features revolutionary SolidBurn and Write Right technologies. SolidBurn automatically learns and optimizes the writing settings for recordable media and makes over-speed writing feasible and stable, delivering stunning drive intelligence to help users write any media at the desired speed. BenQ’s Write Right technology provides thorough protection during the writing process, which includes Seamless Link (for buffer-under run protection), dynamical jitter calibration (for real-time writing quality consistency) and Walking-OPC (for real-time writing power compensation) features.

Sweet :)

SATA is nice...I'm out of IDE connectors for some reason 8)

Too bad the discs are so freaking expensive...but they'll come down. Just look at how fast DVD burners came down vs. CD burners...
BenQ 1655, BenQ 1620, LG 4167, Plex PX-716SA, Samsung SH-S162L, SH-S182M, Pioneer 111D, Lite-On SHM-165H6S and 1.9TB of HDDs to feed 'em and an X2/4800 to crunch for 'em.

So is the picture of the drive with the blue bar the BluRay drive (probably) or the 1670, whose description it's sitting next to? Looks like a neat drive, kind of like a variant of the Pioneer A_XL family (I always liked that design)

I'm fairly certain that is the 1670.
