Samsung announces an external 3D Blu-ray combo drive

Turns 2D into 3D

By Dean Wilson

KOREAN ELECTRONICS GIANT Samsung has announced a slim external 3D Blu-ray combo drive that will be available for PCs in April with a price tag of $150.

The SE-406A optical disk drive comes with Cyberlink Truetheater software and will play Blu-ray and 3D content, if the PC it’s plugged into supports these formats. It also reads and writes CDs and DVDs and is USB powered.

An interesting feature is the ability for the drive to transform 2D DVD movies into 3D ones. It is not clear how it does this and how good or convincing the finished product is, but it might tempt a number of people interested in seeing their old DVD collection look more realistic.
