Expand your laptop with the gorgeous ASUS ZenDrive U9M DVD drive, which boasts an original, minimalist design that is ultra sleek and thin: just 13.9mm. You will also appreciate how very lightweight it is, weighing in at just 245g. This DVD drive is designed in the spirit of Zen with typical, brushed, concentric circles that make it the perfect companion for laptops, but particularly ZenBooks: the pinnacale of ASUS.
The ASUS ZenDrive U9M supports both USB Type A and C, which is why two data transfer cables are included. This ensures that the drive is compatible with a wide range of laptops, whether they be a Windows or Mac. A particularly great feature is the reversible USB Type C, which makes it possible to quickly transfer files from compatible devices.
This ASUS burner supports M-DISC, which is an archival, data storage solution that helps you to preserve your most valuable digital memories, family photos or videos. The service life for hard drives, flash drives, or other writeable media is about 8 years, which is not an ideal amount of time for archiving. However, M-DISC burning technology records data into a solid layer. It is resistant to extreme conditions and can keep your data for more than 1,000 years.
The ASUS ZenDrive U9M in gold also serves as an easy-to-use, back-up solution. The CyberLink Power2Go 8 and PowerBackup software come with the drive. These tools simplify the disc burning process and offer an optional encryption feature to protect your private files. Another useful feature is the ability to wirelessly back up your Android device to your computer through Nero BackItUp.
