Taiwan-based NU Inc introduces the EBC100 Blu-ray combo external drive. At 155 x 141 x 17.6 mm and 400g weight, it claims to be the worldâ€™s slimmest external Blu-ray drive.
The NU EBC100 is powered via a USB connection instead of a traditional power adapter. Just insert its USB connector to your laptop and youâ€™re ready to watch high definition Blu-ray movies anywhere. Even so, a power adaptor is still included in the retail pack for traditional users.
Writing speeds of the EBC100 are 8X for DVDÂ±R, 4X for DVDÂ±RW, 2X for DVDÂ±R DL, 5X for DVD-RAM, 8X for CD-R and 4X for CD-RW. Reading speeds are 2X for BD-ROM, 8X for DVD-ROM and 24X for CD-ROM.
