Are you in the market for a new DVD drive? Despite the fanfare that usually accompanies new connectivity options for business workstations, the computer DVD drive remains perhaps the safest and most physically secure way for a business to both store and transfer highly important data from one place to another. A computer DVD drive is still an essential component in the business environment; a company never knows when its other options for data capture, storage, and transfer may be compromised—especially when those options are contingent upon the performance of an outside server.
Companies with a reputation for high performance DVD drive units include LG, Addonics, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Dell, and Fujitsu. These companies are the best when it comes to the actual functionality of the DVD drive as well as keeping their ability to connect within a larger system updated with the latest technologies—such as USB 3.0. Some properties to consider outside of connectivity include the top speed of data capture for a drive as well as the type of DVD media that it takes. Many businesses are unaware that there are actually two major types of DVD media: +R and -R. A good drive should take both mediums.
A properly managed DVD drive can also serve as a failsafe system backup when all other options are inaccessible. Combine this with a physically stronger medium as well as the ability to more easily file, store, and find the physical disc, and companies have no excuse for leaving this part of their data security and transfer capabilities open.
