PORTLAND, OR (July 2005) – LaCie today introduces a fully portable LightScribe-enabled DVD solution, merging its slimmest 8.5GB double layer DVD burner with innovative LightScribe disc labeling technology. LaCie Slim DVD±RW Drive with LightScribe Design by F.A. Porsche is available immediately with fast 8x DVD±RW burning speed and USB 2.0 interface for use on any PC.

LightScribe allows users to burn silkscreen-quality labels directly onto CDs and DVDs without the need for a printer or ink accessories. Using the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Drive with LightScribe and specially coated LightScribe discs, consumers and businesses can create personalized, precise, professional-looking labels composed of art, text, or photos. Disc art can even be saved and used again for future projects. LightScribe-enabled CDs and DVDs are available direct from LaCie or in most retail and online stores.

“LaCie is recognized in the optical industry for bringing advanced optical technology to PC and Mac users, and the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Drive delivers the benefits of LightScribe technology to mobile computer users with power and style,” says Kent Henscheid, LightScribe Marketing Manager.

what's with all of those Sigmas ?
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Mordor, where the Shadows lie
