Taipei, Taiwan – Lite-On (www.liteonodd.com), a global leader in optical storage solutions, announces the release of the world’s thinnest DVD writer, the eUAU108. The ultra-thin 13.2 mm, ultra-light 250 g drive has been designed for both portability and simple elegance. Supporting 8.5GB double-layer recordable DVDs, and including a built-in USB cable, this portable drive is ideal for backing up video, for software installation, or for watching DVDs.


The drive is powered directly from a single USB port and has a short integrated USB cable that sits in a built-in cable holder. This convenient system makes drive completely self-contained, eliminating the need to carry an additional power adapter or cabling.


One of the focuses during development was to make an attractive product that users would enjoy carrying. This resulted in a chic design with elegant lines and a simple gloss finish. As a result, the eUAU108 is equally at home in a study, in a college dorm, or on the desk of a graphic designer.

The eUAU108 is capable of playing and recording all common DVD and CD formats, including DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R9, DVD-RAM, DVD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-ROM. Lite-On SMART Burn technology is included to guarantee that this maximum-8× writer delivers excellent-quality disc burns. Also incorporated is SMART-X to ensuring the quality and speed of disc reads.


A useful feature is Lite-On’s Link2TV technology, which works with televisions and other devices that support USB music, photo, and video playback. This special mode provides access to content stored on optical discs, making it easy for purchasers to share media using their large-screen TVs.


“Our aim with the eUAU108 was to create the ultimate slim external DVD writer with no extra cables: users can just grab the drive and go. In terms of thickness and design, we wanted to give users a practical, beautiful drive that they’ll be proud to put next to the best of today’s ultra-thin computers,” said Mrs. Minnie Lin, Marketing Manager of Lite-On.


The ultra-slender, ultra-chic eUAU108 External Slim DVD Writer will be available from October, 2012. For more information please visit the webpage at www.liteonodd.com.
