The next generation in optical storage products, models BE06, GBC-H20L and GBW-H20L provide back-up for a wide variety of files, photos, business documents, or video. Consumers will appreciate the 6x speed at which the drives write and read information, their compatibility with DVD and CDR CDRW, as well as their quick and easy data storage option.
Perfect for laptop users or those that have a multitude of PCs, LG's BE06 can be easily connected through the USB 2.0 connection and a DC power adapter. The BE06 has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $379.95.
The GBC-H20L and the GBW-H20L are designed to satisfy consumer needs for safe and fast data backup. Boasting one of the industry's fastest read and write speed at 16x, the GBW-H20L can also handle up to 50GB of data, equivalent to around 4-1/2 hours of high-definition video or 22 hours of standard definition video (on a dual layer 50GB BD-R/BD-RE recordable media). The GBC-H20L and the GBW-H20L carry manufacturer's suggested retail prices of $199.95 and $279.95 respectively.
I haven't seen these in stores or for sale online yet, but they're supposedly shipping now.
Between this and the price cuts, I think its pretty clear that LG is phasing out its line of "Super-Multi Blue" drives. Thoughts?
