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 ultra-slim notebooks, LG has set its sights on the portable optical drive market. This winter, the company introduced its latest portable Blu-ray Disc writer, the BP40NS20. The stylish and compact Super Multi Blue 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. It also offers support for BDXL media, which can hold up to 128GB of data on a single disc. Last, but not least, the BP40NS20 offers support for Millenniata's M-DISC technology which uses an inorganic rock-like material to provide up to 1000 years of permanent data storage.
