They can read quad-layer and triple-layer disks at 4X
Adding to the considerable multitude of optical disk drives is I-O Data, whose labs have once again produced some Blu-ray units.The company has launched the BRP-U6C line, composed of three versions of the same product.
They are called BRP-U6C, BRP-U6CK and BRP-U6CR and are colored Pearl White, Piano Black, and Oriental Red, respectively.
They link to PCs via USB (universal serial bus) and, in addition to Blu-ray disks, can handle DVDs and CDs just fine too.
Since we're on the subject, quad-layer and triple-layer Blu-ray disks are written at up to 4X speed, dual and single-layer at 6X and BD-RE at 2X.
Meanwhile, DVDs can reach 8X and CDs can be scribed at up to 24X.
I-O Data wants 11,500 JPY in exchange for either unit, which is the same as $139 / 105 Euro.
