This new optical drive from ASUS not only allows Blu-ray playback, it also doubles as a DVD and CD burner, meaning it can handle pretty much every major format of optical media on the market today (sorry Laserdisc fans, it's time to move on). The BC-1205PT supports DVD reading and writing in both the + and - formats, as well as being able to read and write to DVD-RAM and Dual-Layered DVD discs. Naturally, it can also handle and CD-R and CD-RW discs.
