Toshiba Slim HD DVD Drive

Toshiba has quietly begun shipping its first travel HD DVD drive, the PA3530U-1HD1. Its thin profile suits it to being carried alongside a notebook for watching HD movies and as an external second drive for most any USB 2.0-equipped system. While read-only for its native format, the drive also burns DVD-R and -RW discs at 4X and CDs as quickly as 16X for write-once CDs. Dual-layer DVDs and CD-RW discs are also writeable.

The Japanese firm's latest drive currently needs both a modern PC and a nearby power source, and ships from NewEgg today for $370. [via Everything USB]
