SmartWrite can set the optimum speed of operation, enabling users to “burn and work”, running other applications while making a BD, DVD or CD with a minimum risk of failed burns, or creating “coasters”. SmartX can automatically adjust data extraction speed, such as decreasing the reading speed to reduce acoustic noise and anti-vibration, and provides smooth and quiet playback.
The BD writer is capable of recording and playing back today’s most popular media formats including Blu-ray, DVD, and CD. It has a write speed of up to 12X on a BD-R SL, 8X on BD-R DL, and read speeds of 8X on BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE SL, 6X on BD-RE DL media, and supports DVD±R media at 16X.
