Pioneer’s DVR-XD09 is an extremely low profile optical drive that weighs in at a meager 8oz, and is only slightly larger than a music CD case at 5.24” x .58” x 5.24”. Unlike the AC adapter that accompanies most bulky 5.25” enclosures, the DVR-XD09 makes use of USB 2.0 for both data and power. It accepts discs as large as 8.5GB and supports 8x writing speeds for single-layer DVDs, 6x for double-layer media and 24x for CDs.
Pioneer is readying the DVR-XD09 for an August launch, and it will sell for about $80.
