PARIS, FRANCE (Sept 17, 2009) – Today LaCie announced the
latest versions of its Portable DVD±RW Drive, design by Sam Hecht. Now with a
sleek black finish, the award-winning LaCie Portable DVD±RW includes new
multimedia burning solutions, allowing users to piece together sophisticated
movie, music, and photo projects in a matter of minutes – creating customized
CDs or DVDs wherever they go.
Featuring two versions for easy setup and seamless
compatibility, users can choose from the multimedia burning solution for Mac or
PC. The Windows® version comes with Creator Suite 10, while the combined Mac®
and Windows version comes with Toast 9 Basic, as well as Creator Suite 10.
Additionally, it is USB bus-powered so only one cable is
needed to start burning CDs and DVDs. The 8x drive is less than an inch tall
and weighs under a pound—fitting perfectly into a bag, backpack, or briefcase.
"With the popularity of lightweight laptop computers and
netbook solutions, which often exclude optical drives, users need an
ultra-portable DVD±RW solution that will allow them to play, save, and share
their multimedia collections," Christelle Dexet, Multimedia Product
Manager. "The new, black, Sam Hecht Portable DVD±RW offers mobility,
simplicity, and of course style – without compromising the key features that
complement their computing systems and their lifestyles."
The LaCie Portable DVD±RW drive is equipped with LightScribe
– an innovative technology that allows you to burn silkscreen-quality labels
directly onto CDs and DVDs with a laser instead of a printer.
The LaCie Portable DVD±RW will be available in versions for
Mac and PC, through the LaCie Store Online, LaCie Reseller+ and LaCie Corner,
starting at the suggested retail price of $89.99 VAT included. For more
