LG BE06 LG launches Worlds Fastest External Blu Ray Rewriter in Singapore

LG Electronics (LG), a global leader in consumer electronics, brings the
world’s fastest external Super Multi Blu-ray rewriter to Singapore. With the
ability to read and write Blu-ray discs at 6x, the external drive from LG
enables users to store large amounts of data at a record-breaking speed.

Sporting a unique slanted bezel design, the LG BE06 is ideal for home and office
use especially to back-up large quantities of data files, photos and documents
as it can record up to 50GB of data; equivalent to 9 hours of high-definition
video or 23 hours of standard definition video (on a dual layer 50GB BD-R/BD-RE
recordable media).

Mr. Jae Bae, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore says, “With the
increased volume of data available today, the need for alternative storage
options is rising rapidly. Not only are we choosing to store more data, such as
digital images, music files and videos, but we also continue to be bound by
record keeping regulations, all of which take up precious space. LG’s
revolutionary new 6x optical storage drive, the BE06, allows users to not only
store massive volumes of data compactly, but it also does it in lightening
speed. Our new 6x technology is set to transform the way we interact with data.”

The new Super Multi Blue drive takes BD and HD DVD dual optical drive to the
next level, with the a BD-R write speed of 6X, and DVD+/-R write speed of 16X.
The new Super Multi Blue also reads HD DVD ROM at 3X speed and can be connect
easily to any PC through a USB 2.0 connection. Combining cutting-edge Blu-ray
technology with other optical disc formats, including HD DVD, DVD, DVD±R, and
DVD±RW, the LG BE06 takes the complexity and guesswork out of purchasing blank
media.

The LG BE06 will be available locally at major electronic retail outlets from
April 2008 priced at $ 999.
