The latest findings from research firm DisplaySearch states that the number of available netbooks may reach up to 33 million worldwide in 2009. Measuring and weighing much smaller than the traditional laptops, notebooks and the much smaller netbooks provide a unique method for people to access and browse the Internet, as well as personal e-mails and other digital content.
With the popularity of netbooks and notebooks, however, there is only one problem: They do not have DVD burners. You would probably end up buying a separate DVD burner, but more often than not they are really heavy; a complete hassle if you ask the techies. Pioneer may provide a solution for that dilemma with its spanking new DVR-XD09, an ultraslim and portable DVD/ CD writer that is no larger than a CD case and weighing just about eight ounces.
Simply connect the DVR-XD09 to your netbook or notebook through a USB 2.0 port and you can now easily transport, connect, and back-up important data files almost anywhere you go, with top writing speeds of up to 8x on single-layer media. It also works on multiple computer set-ups.
In addition, users can also archive significant amounts of data as the DVR-XD09 supports dual-layer DVD-R, upgrading the storage capacity of a single layer disc from 4.7GB to 8.5GB. This DVD burner can write files on a dual-layer DVD in speeds of up to 6x.
The new Pioneer DVR-XD09 DVD/ CD computer writer will be available starting August 2009 for a suggested retail price of $79.99.
