    321 Studios offers Lite-On dual format DVD burner for $ 20

    321 Studios offers Lite-On dual format DVD burner for $ 20 and donates to EFF
    11 November 2003 - 17:35 - Source: 321 Studios


    321 Studios, the developers of our most downloaded software package DVDxCopy have send a press release stating that customers are now able to bundle a Lite-On dual format DVD recorder (retail price about $ 150) with DVDxCopy and any other 321 Studio software title for an additional $ 20. From this bundle the company will also donate $ 25 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which is a non profit organistation to protect digital rights.


    “This is great chance to give the movie enthusiast in your family a complete set of 321 software this holiday season, along with the DVD burner you need to get the most out of that gift,” said Robert Moore, 321 Studios’ Founder and President. “The Lite-On burner is at an unheard-of price, and 321’s software allows your DVD enthusiast to protect his or her DVD collection, or make the most of his or her holiday photos and home videos.”


    [..]

    “We are very pleased that 321 Studios has chosen to recognize the important work of the Electronic Frontier Foundation with a generous financial contribution over the next year,” said EFF Executive Director Shari Steele. “321 Studios knows firsthand the importance of advocating copyright law that preserves the balance between the rights of innovators and the public.”



    "This is a natural partnership that allows our customers to join the fight for digital rights. The EFF are working to protect those rights - including that of Americans to protect their home entertainment investment through DVD backup and repair,” Moore continued. “As the leader in the DVD backup, repair, and creation software industry, it makes sense for 321 and our customers to put some economic muscle behind that fight.”


    The company is currently also fighting for digital rights in the US and the UK, as it has been sued in both countries because its software circumvents the CSS copy protection that can be found on commercial DVDs and prevents users from making safety backups. More information can be found here. Discuss this software in our Transcoding Software Forum.

    This isn't what I think of as a dual format burner. According to their site, here are the specs:

    4xDVD+R
    4xDVD+RW
    40xCD-R
    24xCD-RW

    Not a bad deal, I guess, but I can't imagine buying a burner at this point that can't burn + and - formats.

    Just a thought.....

    This is not a hot deal, you have to purchase $150 software in order to get an outdated DVD burner for $20 more. Think I'll pass. :rolleyes:

    Sometimes they do it the other way around, you buy a writer for $99, get the software for $50 :-)
