Samsung shows new external optical writers

Ultrabooks usually come with no optical drives installed, a fact, which sometimes may become a problem if you need to install software from an optical disk. You should not worry, though, as Samsung has released two new external optical drives that are perfect for ultrabooks.

The new Samsung drives are called SE-218GN and SE-208GB and have been designed for ultrabook users on the go. This is the reason why they come with a sleek design and mobile size. The drives measure 148.6 x 14 x 146 mm (SE-208GB) and 148 x 14.4 x 143 mm (SE-218GN) and come with the Eject button placed on top of them instead of on the front bezel to make it easier to get the optical disk out of the drive.  

The new Samsung optical drives also come with Smart Power Technology that lowers the drives’ power consumption and provides longer ultrabook battery life. This technology enables both drives to act as a portable hard disk drive for tablets with available USB connections. In addition to that both models get connected to an ultrabook via a single USB port. Thanks to Samsung’s innovative AV Connectivity technology, tablet users can now enjoy stored multimedia content.

The Samsung SE-208GB and SE-218GN writers are equipped with Smart Archive Technology that safely stores precious personal data. This technology offers enhanced recording quality that is optimized for DVDs that are used to store content for an extra long time. To make sure the drives can be used by as many people as possible Samsung has made them compatible with all major operating systems including Windows 8 and the latest Mac OS versions. Buffer Under Run technology prevents errors that can be caused when writing speeds exceed data transfer speeds, while also enabling PC multi-tasking. The drives are also eco-friendly and lack chemical substances or chemicals that can damage the environment.

The new Samsung external optical drives are available now. A price list was not provided, though.
