Sony Sony DRX-S70U-W Optical Drive Perfect For Netbook Use

If you’ve got a netbook and it isn’t a Japanese import or the ASUS Eee PC 1004DN, you probably don’t have an optical drive. So what are you going to do when you need to watch DVDs on the run?

The new Sony DRX-S70U-W optical drive has a classy brushed metal design and connects to netbooks, notebooks, and desktops via USB.

The optical drive is DVD/CD recordable for speeds of up to 8X DVD±R and can deliver a 4.7 GB disc’s worth of data. It records on 8.5 GB DVD+R Double/Dual layer as well as 4.7 GB DVD-RW discs at speeds of 6X, “DVD+RW at 8X, DVD-RAM at 5X and CD-R/RW at 24X.”

Sony’s new netbook drive comes with the Nero DVD/CD mastering software suite.

Pricing and availability are as of yet unknown but the Sony DRX-S70U-W optical drive is expected by Christmas at the latest.
