PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
E-Green (Energy Green Engine)
The innovative drive E-Green Engine technology features an E-Green Mode that automatically closes drive applications when not in use to help conserve energy - helping the environment by decreasing CO2emissions and reducing the depletion of trees.
E-Hammer allows you to permanently delete the data on writable disc (CD-R and DVD-R) formats. Once the data is deleted, it cannot be recovered or restored, and the optical drive will not be able to read the disc. This ensures data security, eliminates the hassle of scratching your old discs, and conforms with our commitment to environmental protection.
AVRS (Auto Vibration Reducing System)
The AVRS technology is designed to minimize the vibration caused by the spindle motor and resonance between components as well as the drive and PC cases. AVRS is designed to reduce vibration and noise induced by unbalanced mass of rotating machinery.
With AVRS, ASUS DRW-24B1 provides high readability and playability.
OTS (Optimal Tuning Strategy)
With OTS, the drive will perform a test before really burning which generate the optimal burning strategy automatically for the best burning quality.
The retail box of the DRW-24B1ST features colorful packaging with the drive inside held snugly by two pieces of cardboard. Since this is a full retail package, software is included.
Along with the drive Asus included Nero 8 software, a quick install manual, and some screws for installation. Current pricing is just over $20 US, which is very reasonable.
