ASUS Launches the New VariDrive Accessory - Docking Station + Optical Drive

DisplayLink, the leading provider of technology for virtual graphics and USB-connected computing and ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, today announced the launch of their VariDrive USB3.0 Media Docking device, which has been honored by the CEA for 2013 CES Innovations. The Varidrive combines an external slot-loading optical Multi DVD combo drive, with a DisplayLink enabled SuperSpeed docking station for UltraBook expansion and is housed in an ultra portable form factor.

The new ASUS VariDrive product is the perfect match for UltraBooks and notebooks alike, providing all the much-needed peripheral expansion options that users today demand. VariDrive includes an 8X multi DVD read/write combo drive and a docking station with HDMI, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI Audio, all in a stylish form factor.

"ASUS VariDrive's sleek design and unique connectivity options makes it ideal for the multi-media savvy users," said John Cummins, VP of Sales and Marketing for DisplayLink. "Adding to that, the simplicity of a plug-and-display USB3.0 connector to get all these expansion capabilities, makes it the must have peripheral for any consumer."

The VariDrive will be on show at 2013 CES and has been honored with an Innovations Award in the category of Computer Peripherals.
