New 18X DVD Burners from Sony

Sony has introduced four new DVD burners in their 830 series that can burn 16x media at 18x speeds, burning a full 4.7GB DVD in just about 5 minutes. Sony said the new 830 series of multi-format DVD burners support all of the industry’s leading recording formats in just one drive.

The internal DRU-830A ($90) drive and external DRX-830U ($130) burners come bundled with the new Nero 7 software suite, a feature-rich package for burning, authoring and editing home movies, creating digital scrapbooks and backing up critical data.

The external DRX-830UL-T ($150) comes with Toast 6 Lite and a FireWire port to cater to Mac users.

And finally, the slim external DRX-S50U ($130) burner supports 8X DVD +/- R, 4X DVD +/- R DL, 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, and 24X CD-R/RW. It also comes with the hi-speed USB interface for maximum flexibility.
