LG Electronics is one of Korea's oldest and most respected consumer electronics firms. Since the introduction of their first radio in 1959, the company has grown to become one of the world's top electronics manufacturers, offering everything from large home appliances to tiny mobile phones. LG is no stranger to the optical storage industry either. Working closely with companies like Hitachi, they've lead the way in this area, developing and manufacturing a wide range of products, including the industry's first "Super-Multi" drives.
With the growing popularity of notebook and netbook computers, LG has set its sights on the portable optical drive market. At the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, the company unveiled its first portable Super Multi Blue drive, the BP06LU10. The stylish and compact drive is capable of 6x BD-R, 6x BD-R DL and 2x BD-RE writing speeds and a maximum BD-ROM read speed of 6x. The BP06LU10 is also backwards compatible with all major CD and DVD formats and offers features like a 4MB buffer, support for HP's LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling system and CyberLink's Blu-ray Disc Suite which includes software capable of playing back Blu-ray movies in 3D.
