Transcend has announced a black version of its CD/DVD writer apart from its white edition. With a brand new gloss black casing, compact dimension and versatile functions, the CD/DVD writer is ideal for thin-and-light laptops – or even netbooks – for diverse entertainment and enhanced productivity.

As notebook computers become increasingly smaller and lighter, built-in CD or DVD drives and writers are often not included. Transcend's 8X slim portable CD/DVD writer was created specifically for use with compact notebooks, and features an ultra-thin and sleek design, making it stylish, compact and easy to carry around. No external power adapter is needed, as the CD/DVD writer is entirely USB powered, drawing its electric power directly from the computer's USB ports. Whether relaxing at home or traveling abroad, notebook users now have the freedom to enjoy DVD movies, install essential software or create data backup discs anytime, anywhere.

The CD/DVD writer comes bundled with a full-featured copy of the powerful media writing software CyberLink Power2Go, and also includes a bonus 30-day trial version of CyberLink's MediaShow. With these easy-to-use software tools, users can not only burn music, data, video and even bootable discs in a variety of CD and DVD formats, including CD-R/RW, DVD
