Toshiba announces slim HD DVD writer for notebook PCs Toshiba Corp. has announced its new slim HD DVD-RW drive for notebook PCs that can read and write and rewrite to HD DVD-RW discs, and read and write to HD DVD-R discs and to standard DVD and CD discs. The new SD-L912A makes it possible to backup the large capacities of PC hard drives to the reusable format of HD DVD-RW discs, and store data-rich HD digital content. The drive's ability to rewrite to HD DVD-RW also opens the way to a wide range of applications involving storage and rewriting of large volumes of data.
The new product also supports high speed read and write for standard DVD and CD discs, and the complete library of different DVD and CD formats. The new drive is compliant with the EU RoHS 3 directive on environmentally hazardous substances, which came into force in July 2006. Toshiba will feature the new drive at the Toshiba Digital Media Network Taiwan Corporation booth (booth: B1234) at Computex 2007, which will be held in Taipei, Taiwan from June 5 to 9.

Sample shipments of the new drive are scheduled to start next month.

Where are the PC drives? When are they coming & for how much?

They're the question I want answered.

Still, it's nice to see HD DVD -rw burning finally make it's appearance (they had had trouble bringing this to market so I hear).
