Sony Optiarc Ships External DRX-S77U, Internal AD-7260S Optical Drives
The external DRX-S77U lets you write to DVD±R/RW media at 8X, to DVD±R DL and DVD-RW at 6X, to DVD-RAM at 5X, and to CD-R/RW at 24X. The USB 2.0 drive is bundled with Nero 9 and is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7. The novelty comes in a few colors: black, white, pink, golden.
The internal AD-7260S has the same write speeds as AD-7240S released in March 2009: 24X DVD±R, 12X DVD-R DL and DVD-RAM, 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 48X CD-R, 32X CD-RW. Two bezel colors are available: black and white. Note that the drive supports LightScribe.
By the way, Sony Optiarc claims that the aforementioned AD-7240S was the first optical drive to write to DVD±R at 24X. Lite-On wouldn't agree to that, having rolled out similar optical drives in February 2009, about a month before AD-7240S was introduced.
