Lite-On iHAP622 and iHAS622 22x DVD Writers @ Computex

Postby Ian on Thu Jun 05, 2008 8:09 am

Lite-On had their new 22x DVD writers on display at Computex. According to the info on display, the iHAP622 (PATA) and iHAS622 (SATA) are capable of 22x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW and 12x DVD-RAM writing speeds. The drive also support Nero's SecurDisc as well as SmartErase. It's good to see a drive that actually supports SmartErase as the software for this feature has been available for some time. Here's a picture, courtesy of Engadget China:

Is this the SmartErase that's been in various versions of Smartburn and LtnFlash? I'm really curious just what it does, i.e. if it's capable of reliably destroying a non-RW DVD.

These look like interesting drives btw. The number 6 has always been good for LiteOn.

Yeah, I think this is the SmartErase that's been in their various utilities. I have a feeling that its similar to Plextor's PlexEraser technology.

I've heard 3Q of 2008 which could mean as early as July or as far back as September.
