Samsung introduces world’s thinnest optical drive for tablets
While the world moves toward downloadable content and cloud storage, Samsung is guessing that quite a number of people still have a significant amount of movies and data stored on optical media. Samsung is looking to bring that media to tablets and ultrabooks by introducing the SE-2188BB – the world’s thinnest optical disc drive.
The drive is 18% thinner and 8% lighter than conventional DVD writers. It utilizes a single USB port to provide both power and data connectivity and measures just 14 millimeters thick.
“With its ultra small footprint, consumers will appreciate the SE-218BB sleek drive as an ideal companion for ultrabook users that quickly connects and is USB powered to access content wherever they are,” Samsung said in a statement.
This optical drive is available now online and at just $60, it’s a great way to take your old DVDs on the go with you.
