LiteOn's 20x SATA DVD drive

20x SATA DVD drive

The "world's first" 20x DVD writer with a SATA connection is being claimed by the Taiwanese maker LiteOn, who note an increasing number of motherboards shipping without parallel ATA ports. The LH-20A1S can play and write to all major CD and DVD formats, including double-layer discs, and the rarer R9 standard (single-sided 8.5GB). Throughput on the 20A1S is only rated at 1.5Gbps, but should be compatible with motherboards that use 3Gbps SATA II connections. The first 20A1S drives will go to the European market in mid-February, selling for 49 ($64).
