Light Up Your Discs With Lite-On Lightscribe
Lite-On IT is launching it's first DVD writer to incorporate LightScribe technology, and are making it even more attractive with write speeds that are double the previous models.
LightScribe is a new technology that uses laser etching to 'draw' high quality images on the topside of the disc, creating the ultimate professional finish and making creased labels and smudged marker pens a thing of the past. What's more, Lite-On has developed Dual Layer burning speeds of up to 8X DVD+R.
With the combination of these two features in the latest internal DVD writer, the SHW-16H5S, every user will be able to back-up and store up to 8.5GB of data more efficiently, faster and creatively than ever before.
MEDIA: The SHW-16H5S includes write speeds of 8x on DVD+R (double layer) media as well as 4x on DVD-RW (double layer). For single layer discs the speed is 16x for DVD+/-R and re-writing speed is 8x for DVD+RW and 6x for DVD-RW. What's more it also has the best CD writing performance of any DVD drive on the market writing to CD-R media at a speedy 48X.
