Asus Blu-Ray USB Drive

asus-blu-ray-usb-driveAsus have created a new Blu-Ray USB Drive. The drive has a read speed of 4.8x for BD’s and can read/write CD’s and DVD’s. Unfortunately it does not write BD’s though.

The Blu-Ray drive, numbered ASUS SBC-04D1S-U comes with a stand allowing it to be mounted vertically if needed. The downside of the drive (apart from the no writing BD thing) is that it’s tray loading rather then slot which I would have more expected with this unit.

Asus Blu-Ray SBC-04D1S-U Features
