LG spins 6x speed Blu-ray Disc burner

BD/HD DVD combo drive too

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

LG is preparing a internal optical drive capable of reading both Blu-ray Discs and HD DVD media, it has been claimed. The South Korean giant is also readying a BD writer capable of 6x burn speeds.

Although we've seen no official announcement from LG itself, a number of websites have claimed the company last week unveiled its GGW-H20LI, the 6x BD burner, and the GGC-H20LI. Both drives can read and write the full array of CD and DVD formats.

As attested by the 'LI' suffix, both drives are also said to support LightScribe technology for etching labels on compatible media.

The two drives - said to be priced around $499 and $399, respectively - are expected to arrive later this quarter.

Last week, Lite-On IT said it will knock €100 off the price of its 2x Blu-ray Disc burner, the LH-2B1S.
