Posted by at 12:37 pm on April 26, 2012

Samsung’s optical disc drive division has just unveiled what it touts as the industry’s skinniest external DVD burner. The SE-218BB is 0.55 inches (14mm thick), or 18 percent thinner than regular DVD burners. The smaller size also translates to weight savings, as the company said it’s eight percent lighter than its standard external burners.

It’s USB-powered and can be used with compatible tablet PCs to access data on the optical media. Android 3.1 or newer tablets with a USB port can also watch DVD content from the drive. Read speeds for CDs and CD-RWs are 24X, while write speeds for DVD-Rs are 8X, 5X for DVD-RAM, 6X for DVD+R dual-layer, 6X for DVD-R dual-layer, 8X for DVD+RW, and 6X for DVD-RW.

The drive features lead-free soldering for environmental friendliness. It’s now available in Samsung’s global markets, priced at $60.
