Ultra-fast 12x speed with USB 3.0 technology:

Enjoy high definition movies without costly upgrades:
Movie fans don’t need to upgrade their entire home cinema system to enjoy their favourite flicks in high definition. The eHBU212 provides a simple, plug-and-play way to turn your desktop or laptop into a Blu-ray player, capable of delivering graphics in stunning 1920x1080p high definition with superior audio.
Back-up vast quantities of data onto a single disc:
With a whopping 50GB storage space available on just one Blu-ray disc (Double Layer), the days of needing countless disc to back-up and share large media collections are gone. Just one disc offers space for up to 10,000 12 megapixel photos or 625 hours of continuous music – more than enough to share precious memories or keep the kids quiet on long journeys.
Get the most out of Blu-ray with Cyberlink software:
The eHBU212 is bundled with the Cyberlink Blu-Ray Suite which offers an array of tools and software to make the most of Blu-ray for both writing data or playing movies, including advanced burning tools and DVD video editing.
Fun and easy disc labelling with LightScribe:
With Lightscribe functionality, the eHBU212 drive offers a creative touch to discs, without extra hardware or fussy marker pens. The easy-to-use and smudge-free disc-labelling system uses the Blu-ray laser and bundled software to ‘etch’ the desired design onto Lightscribe media – simply write the data, flip the disc then burn the label for a colourful and consistent finish.
Reduce wasted discs with SMART Burn technology:
SMART Burn technology compares the disc to be burned with an updated list from Lite-On and automatically adjusts the writing strategy to provide the best burn quality. This intelligent system reduces disc errors and wasted discs to save both time and money.
