ASUS today launched the SBW-06C2X-U external Blu-ray writer, a device that is capable of burning up to 128GB of data on a single Blu-ray® disc. It uses smart burn management to guarantee better and faster data backup performance at 6X Blu-ray writing, and comes with Magic Cinema technology for a complete Blu-ray 3D® multimedia solution in the home. The attractive design has already won an iF Design Award for its innovation, versatility and aesthetics.
The SBW-06C2X-U is an external Blu-ray writer that supports the new BDXL format. This format expands on Blu-ray discs’ previous maximum capacity of 50GB up to 100GB on one BD-R(TL) disc, or 128GB on a single BD-R(QL) disc. The latter gives the equivalent capacity of 27 DVDs (at 4.7GB each), giving users massive data storage capabilities. For added perspective, a single 128GB Blu-ray disc can hold up to 1000 minutes of HD video. Such a huge amount of storage on a single disc helps consumers conserve storage space and time, while encouraging easy backups for additional data protection and longevity.
