Iomega to release DVD±R/RW/-RAM writer in August

A
couple of weeks ago Iomega announced a dual format writer and
today Iomega has announced a new model which also is capable of writing DVD-RAM,
besides the DVD±R/RW formats.


The
Iomega
Super DVD Drive

can read and record DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, CD-R, and CD-RW
formats, with buffer under-run protection for more reliable recording. In
addition, digital audio enthusiasts will appreciate the drive’s 24x DAE
(digital audio extraction) speed for ripping audio files.

The
Iomega®
Super
DVD Drive

comes with multiple software titles to give users a complete and
easy-to-use DVD solution. Bundled software includes Iomega’s DVD Solutions
Wizard, Iomega Automatic Backup, Iomega HotBurn Pro, Sonic MyDVD™
video-editing software, Sonic™ Cineplayer software for the highest quality
video playback, MusicMatch™ Jukebox music management software and Adobe®
ActiveShare photo management
software.

Iomega
has not released any detailed specifications on the drive yet but I will not be
surprised if it turns out to be identical to the Hitachi-LG
GSA-4040B.


The
Iomega Super DVD burner will be released in August in the
U.S. for a
MSRP of 329 USD while the rest of us will have to wait until September
before we can buy one.
