  • Asus 16x Blu-ray Burner SATA (black) picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant Lead) Says:
    This optical drive features M-disc, & BDXL disc support.

    M-disc uses a different rock-like medium for discs which purports to keep data saved for up to 1,000 years! I have no idea how you could test this personally, but nice to know the data will last as other optical disc mediums have proven to lose data over time. Just make sure you purchase M-disc blank media to use this feature.

    This drive also supports BDXL Blu-ray media allowing up to 128GB of data storage on one disc - provided you use the appropriate blank Blu-ray disc media of course. This is a great way to store a lot of data on disc. Use just (1) 128GB BDXL Blu-ray disc instead of (27) single-layer 4.7GB DVD discs to store the same amount of data!

    This is a nice 2U case for cooling your system and adding up to 9 hard drives while not taking up much space in your rack. Just note that any card that you add to a system using this case will need to be "low-profile" to ensure it will fit properly.
