OWC Mercury Pro Blu Player

The times are changing and so are the burners that would usually be familiar as standard CD and DVD burners. With blu ray technology comes the burners as well, offering Blu-ray and DVD burning for any PC or Mac with FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB 2.0 or eSATA connectivity. The new Mercury Pro also doubles the burn speed of the previous-generation version.

Available immediately priced starting at $399.99, the Mercury Pro Blu-ray External Drives are ideal for consumers with large amounts of High-Definition or other video, photos, music, and data files that they want to author, archive, or retrieve using a single disk.

With twice the Blu-ray burn speed over earlier Mercury Pro models, the new Mercury Pro Blu-ray External Drives are capable of burning 50GB of data, equal to 50,000 JPEG images, 17,500 MP3 songs, 25 DVD quality movies, or just under four hours of High Definition video, onto a single disc as quickly as 30 minutes.

Additionally, Mercury Pro Blu-ray drives read and/or write virtually all optical media, including DVD-RAM, DVD Dual-Layer R/RW, DVD R/RW, and CD-R/RW, as well as Blu-ray.
