ASUS writer can play back Blu-ray 3D discs, burns to BDXL media

After posting a mysterious teaser photo of a new product, ASUS has gone ahead and released all the specs of its latest, chic BDXL burner, the SBW-06C2X-U. Apart from the ability to write at 6x speeds to Blu-ray discs and the 100GB BD-R(TL) or 128GB BD-R(QL) media at 4x speeds, the external drive can also play back Blu-ray 3D content. It sits on a metal stand that can hold the drive in either a horizontal or vertical orientation.

The drive can otherwise upscale DVD video to 1080p thanks to the company's Magic cinema feature, and convert 2D video to produce a 3D effect. Security is ensured by a feature called Disc Encryption II, which allows users to set password controls and hidden folders protected by AES 256-bit encryption.

BD-RE(TL) burning speeds are capped at 2x. The drive also supports Dolby EX and DTS-HD 5.1-channel audio.

Despite the teaser and product page, ASUS hasn't revealed pricing nor ship dates for the drive.
