While best known for their motherboards, graphics cards and notebook computers, ASUS has shown us that they're pretty serious about optical storage. Over the years, they've introduced a wide range of products for the portable and desktop markets. With their innovative technologies and impressive performance, these drives have been popular right from the start.
Like most drive manufacturers, ASUS has begun to focus on the growing Blu-ray Disc market. The company recently introduced its first external slim Blu-ray Disc writer, the SBW-06C1S-U. The stylish and compact drive is capable of 6x BD-R, 4x BD-R DL and 2x BD-RE writing speeds and a maximum BD-ROM read speed of 6x.
