When a manufacturer claims that their product or service is the best in its class, then you know there will be a product way better coming soon. Other than Google claiming that the browser in the Android Froyo 2.2 is the world’s fastest for mobile devices, Buffalo is also claiming that they have the world’s slimmest and lightest external USB 2.0 DVD burner.
The Buffalo DVSM-PSS58U2-BK measures 131mm x 14.5mm x 130mm and weighs 250grams. It offers a maximum writing speeds of 8x for DVD-R/+R/+RW, 6x for DVD-R DL/DVD+R DL/DVD-RW, 5x for DVD-RAM and 24x for CD-R/CD-RW. Other than the claim that comes with it, Buffalo has bundled with it CyberLink’s PowerDVD 9, MediaShow 5, Power2Go 6, InstantBurn 5 and PowerBackup 2 software.
The Buffalo DVSM-PSS58U2-BK is scheduled for shipment starting mid-June 2010 in Japan and priced at $116 per unit.
