MSI's Wind gets a multi-function drive

MSI Wind Drive

MSI's small and stylish Wind netbook is soon going to get an external multi-function optical drive called the MSI Wind Drive.

The new external optical drive comes in a compact and light aluminum chassis which should look good when placed next to the MSI Wind netbook. The drive measures 149.5x136x18 mm and uses anodized brushed aluminum, so no nasty fingerprints and smudges will be visible on the case. The best thing is that it doesn't need external power, as it works flawlessly over the USB 2.0 connection.

As for the technical details, the Wind Drive can burn DVD-ROM and DVD-ROM DL at 8x, while CD-ROMs burn speed goes up to 24x speed. It reads DVD±R DL: 6X, DVD±R: 8X, DVD+RW: 8X, DVD-RW: 6X, DVD-RAM: 5X, CD-R and CD-RW at 24X. It has data buffer with 2MB and uses Sunplus chipset with PLDS DS-8A2S optical disc drive.

It would be nice if MSI included a nice carrying case with this drive that could be attached to the original MSI Wind case, and although this might already be the case, we didn't get any info on the package of the Wind Drive. The MSI Wind Drive should hit e-tail/retail shelves in about two to three weeks time and the price should end up at around €45.

This is how it looks.
