DynaMO 1300LT Photo/1300U2 Photo: Fujitsu´s MO hybrids

TDK updates Indi series with 12x DVD drives

TDK officially announced two new multi-format Indi DVD drives: AID+1280 (ATAPI/E-IDE) and external DED+1280. Both devices have identical speed formulas: 12x DVD+R recording, 8x DVD-R recording and both support DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW, CD-R/RW media.

The external model has FireWire/IEEE1394 and USB2.0 interfaces that makes it theoretically suitable for both PC and MAC users. Bundles of both drives include DVD Builder, Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6.2, Roxio DVDMax and PhotoSuite Lite.

The internal model is already selling with MSRP of $170, while DED+1280 will go on sale in July with MSRP of $270.

  • DVD write: 12x (+R); 8x (-R)
  • DVD rewrite: 4x (+RW); 4x (-RW)
  • DVD read: 12x
  • CD write: 48x
  • CD-RW rewrite: 24x

DynaMO 1300LT Photo/1300U2 Photo: Fujitsu´s MO hybrids

Simply and unpretentiously Fujitsu announced new magneto-optical solutions (to go on sale in September) based on two old MO drives. The novelties are named DynaMO 1300LT Photo and DynaMO 1300U2 Photo. While DynaMO 1300LT has arrived recently, DynaMO 1300U2 sounded as far back as in 2002.

Updated drives are aimed at digital camera owners. DynaMO 1300LT Photo also features a CF, Microdrive, Smart Media, SD, MMC reader. It powers from 4xAA batteries enough to copy 2.6GB. Sized 195x135x29mm, it weighs 550g. If needed, the reader can be detached from the MO drive.

DynaMO 1300U2 Photo has a TV-out, but you can´t detach the reader. It supports 128MB to 1.3GB media and provides 4,031rpm speed (3012rpm for 1.3GB), and has 2MB buffer. Sized 180x118x38mm, it weighs 650g.

This rather strange hybrid also has 320x230 LCD (1.6"), so considering the bundled remote control, it can be used as a kind of a photo album.
