Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today introduced its 8X slim portable CD/DVD writer, which at just 13.9mm high, is currently the thinnest external CD/DVD writer ever released by Transcend. Whether playing movies, installing software, or backing up files on the go, Transcend’s new ultra-slim portable CD/DVD writer is the perfect companion for today’s thin-and-light laptops and Ultrabooks.

To complement the new breed of cutting-edge notebooks that do not feature a built-in disc drive, Transcend’s portable CD/DVD writer provides a slim and stylish solution designed to enhance the Ultrabook user experience. Its ultra-thin (13.9mm) and sleek design fits comfortably into the sleeve of any laptop bag or backpack and offers around 44% weight savings over standard external optical drives. Moreover, because the CD/DVD writer draws its electric power directly from the computer`s USB ports, users can enjoy more diverse entertainment and enhanced productivity wherever they are.

The CD/DVD writer comes bundled with a full-featured copy of the powerful media writing software CyberLink® Power2Go, and also includes a bonus 30-day trial version of CyberLink`s MediaShow. With these easy-to-use software tools, users can not only burn music, data, video and even bootable discs in a variety of CD and DVD formats, including CD-R/RW, DVD±R, DVD±RW, DVD±R DL, and DVD-RAM, but also compile, arrange, and produce media files with a simple and straightforward software interface.

Transcend`s Slim CD/DVD writer is fully compatible with Windows 7 and also supports Windows Vista/XP and Mac OS, allowing seamless operation across all major operating systems. Offering up to 8X DVD and 24X CD write speeds, plus support for the dual layer recordable DVD media formats, the CD/DVD writer is currently available for a suggested price of US$59 and is backed by a two-year limited warranty.
