Even though Blu-Ray is slowly making its way into being the mainstream standard media, Lite-On has recently made a DVD writer that supports a maximum write speed of 24X for DVD recodable media. Three models with this speed will be introduced; one without LightScribe capabilities and a SATA connection, as well as two that do support LightScribe and connect through SATA and PATA. The drive that connects through SATA and features LightScribe also will include a new technology, known as LabelTag, which lets users create a label around the ring on the data side of the recordable disc. All there drives will include SmartErase technology, which makes sure that data located on a burned disc is permanently inaccessible by any user. As of now, Lite-On has not discussed any pricing, but the drives will be able to be seen in the market for purchase sometime within the next month or two.
