Sony Electronics today announced its third generation internal Blu-ray Disc(BD) writer for the computer aftermarket. The BWU-300S internal drive features a Serial ATA (SATA) interface and standard 5.25-inch form-factor.

The new BWU-300S model burns single and dual layer BD-R media at up to 8X speed, recording 25GB disc in about 15 minutes and a 50GB disc in about 30 minutes. The 8X recording speed is achieved using 6X compatible BD-R media. The drive also records DVDs at up to 16X, CDs up to 48X, and supports DVD-RAM recording, with an eye towards data backup, making it an excellent replacement burner for a standard DVD drive while offering all the benefits of Blu-ray Disc technology.

The new drive also comes bundled with a "Men in Black" Blu-ray Disc from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and CyberLink software suite for capturing, authoring, editing, burning and viewing high-definition personal content.

The BWU-300S drive will be available next month for about U.S. $400.
