32x burners from LG Electronics

After Asus announced a burner with a maximum 32x speed yesterday, LG Electronics announced a similar device in a press release today. The burner, named GCE-8320B, should also capture a whopping 4,800KB/s on a CD.

Writing to CD-RWs is possible at 10x speed, and reading CDs at 40x. To avoid so-called 'buffer underruns', the device is equipped with 'SuperLink' technology. Generous 8MB memory should ensure sufficient data backup. Additional features include: CD-ROM Mode 1, CD-ROM XA, CD-Audio, Mixed Mode (audio and data combined), CD-I, CD-I FMV, Video-CD, CD-Plus, CD-Extra and CD-Text, Disk at once, Session at once, Track at once, Variable packet write, Fixed packet write and Multisession.

From February, the drive will be bundled with Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.1 and Direct CD 5.10 will be available in stores for € 204.
