Transcend-8XDVDS-K-burner

The memory and optical drive maker Transcend has unveiled the world’s thinnest portable DVD writer – the Transcend 8X DVDS-K.

The new device targets ultrabook owners who are always on the go. Thanks to its ultra slim chassis, which measures just 13.9 mm the portable DVD burner can fit into any laptop bag or sleeve. Designed to connect to a USB port, the device requires just Windows XP or later and Mac OS 10.4 or later to work. It also gets power from the USB connector, which means you won’t have to carry wires for power with it.

The new Transcend burner features 8x DVD write speed and 24x CD write speed and supports recordable dual-layer discs. It also comes with a full copy of the powerful media writing software CyberLink Power2Go and includes a 30-day bonus trial version of CyberLink’s MediaShow.

The burner can be purchased now for 59 USD.
