ASUS Announces ZenDrive U7M

ASUS announces ZenDrive U7M, an ultra-slim external USB DVD writer with M-DISC archival media support. The M-DISC DVDs has the advantage of longevity of 1,000 years. With M-Disc support, you can purchase these DVD discs to store all the important information on them. At just S$69, I think it is very affordable.

It has been a long time since I purchased a DVD writer. One of my reasons is the low storage and also the lifetime of the DVD disc. With M-DISC support, I think I have to rethink again. Too bad, ASUS has not come up with a Blu-ray version. Anyway, here is the packaging.

ZenDrive U7M is stylish with an incredibly slim 13mm form factor, making it the perfect companion for thin and light laptops. Its sleek, Zen-inspired design with the signature ASUS concentric-circle finish adds sophisticated aesthetics to any computer setup.

With bundled disc-burning software that is intuitive yet robust, ZenDrive U7M is a complete backup solution for all the user’s important data. It also comes with Nero BackItUp® for Android — a full backup solution for Android smartphones and tablets to protect data on mobile devices — and unlimited ASUS WebStorage space free for six months.

Save precious memories for 1,000 years

ASUS ZenDrive U7M supports M-DISC, an archival-quality storage solution created by Millenniata, Inc. that works by laser-etching data into a patented rock-like storage layer that is resistant to extreme light, temperature, and humidity. Compared to hard drives, flash drives, and other writeable media — which have an average storage lifetime of approximately eight years — M-DISC is designed to protect against degradation and data loss for 1,000 years or more, ensuring precious memories are kept safe for generations to come.

The most robust backup solution

ASUS ZenDrive U7M provides a complete and easy-to-use backup solution for precious digital memories and important information. ZenDrive U7M comes with CyberLink Power2Go 8, intuitive software that simplifies the disc-burning process and offers optional encryption functionality to protect private files. These powerful functions, together with support for archival-quality M-DISC media, protect information and minimize the risk of data loss to give users complete peace of mind.

ZenDrive U7M also comes with Nero BackItUp for Android, a full, backup solution for Android smartphones and tablets. With just one tap, Nero BackItUp automatically backs up a mobile device’s contacts, messages, call logs, personal settings, songs, photos, and videos to online storage, an SD card, or your PC, so users can keep their data safe even if their device is lost or stolen.
