Default LaCie Intros 4x Blu-ray External Burner

LaCie announced today that is has doubled Blu-ray burn speeds to 4x and has updated the aluminum alloy case and software suite for its external d2 Blu-ray drive.

The 4x Blu-ray burner ships with a full-featured Roxio software package and dual FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 connection options. The drive also boasts 8MB of buffer memory. In early 2007, LaCie was the first vendor to ship worldwide an external solution for professional Hi-Def video recording for both Mac and Windows. Since that time, Blu-ray technology has proven to be the dominant source for video recording and playback, said Patrick Salin, LaCie Business Development Manager. LaCie d2 Blu-ray drives are available now via LaCies specialized dealer network with a suggested retail price of $649.99 and 2 year warranty. For more product information, visit this page.
