Pioneer Introduces new DVD Burner for Netbooks


Recognizing the growing popularity of netbook and notebook products, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today announces a new slim portable DVD/CD writer, the DVR-XD09, that features the industry’s most compact design to date.

The new DVR-XD09 weighs approximately eight ounces and has an overall size that is slightly larger than a music CD case.

This new drive is targeted specifically towards the subset of computer users that have adopted the smaller more portable netbook style of computing that eschews traditional optical drives and sometimes even spinning magnetic hard drives. The drive connects over USB 2.0 and gives users access to traditional software and entertainment input methods on ever smaller computing devices. It is expected to be available next month.
