ASUS Announces 5x DVD-RW DL Recorder

Today ASUS released the ASUS DVD-E818A2/A2T optical drives--the world's first to support 5X DVD-RW DL. The ASUS DVD-E818A2 and ASUS DVD-E818A2T feature the proprietary QuieTrack technology developed to dampen drive noise while improving stability. It consists of two features:

  • Airflow Field Modification (AFFM): Noise and vibration are two major headaches users encounter when using a high-speed drive. AFFM is designed to change the uneven airflow field inside the drive to a balanced pressure distribution that leads to a quiet and stable operation.
  • Auto Vibration Reducing System (AVRS): The AVRS technology is designed to minimize the vibration caused by the spindle motor and resonance between components as well as the drive and PC cases. AVRS is designed to reduce vibration and noise induced by unbalanced mass of rotating machinery. With AVRS, ASUS DVD-E818A2 and ASUS DVD-E818A2T provides high readability and playability.

The ASUS DVD-E818A2 and ASUS DVD-E818A2T also support Speed Auto-Switch Function, High Speed CD-Audio Playback, High Speed Digital Audio Extraction, the choice to mount the drives vertically or horizontally, the original dust resistance design, as well as support for changeable panels.
