Write speeds for single-layer Blu-ray discs are 6X and slow to 4X for dual-layer. The drive includes Cyberlink Blu-ray Disc Suite, which contains nine Windows apps for backup as well as burning and editing both photos and videos.

The Slim was designed by the company's Sam Hecht and is now shipping for $265.
