K8Xtreme Burns Disks at 8X Speeds
Kano Technologies' K8Xtreme External DVD burner writes data to DVD+R and DVD-R formats.Kano Technologies K8Xtreme External DVD burner writes data to DVD+R and DVD-R formats at 8x write speeds. This is the first drive Ive seen that can burn at these speeds with both formats, giving users the flexibility to buy whatever media they want. The K8Xtreme External DVD burner, which shipped this month, has a list price of $299, which is very inexpensive and should make it attractive to IT managers who need to back up small data sets or create WORM archives on DVD media.
In tests, the 8x write speeds allowed me to burn a full disk in a little more than 8 minutes.
