The Pawtec Signature External Slim Aluminum DVD+/-RW Writer with Lightscribe will help you quickly create CDs and DVDs. The cutting edge Pawtec exclusive orange color and design includes capabilities that you simply can’t find with other external DVD and CD writers.

High-Speed Functionality
The Pawtec External Slim Aluminum Orange DVD+/-RW Writer with Lightscribe eliminates the hassle of waiting for your computer to slowly burn discs. The writer burns CD discs at up to 24x and DVD disc at up to 8x (see Technical Details below for more information on read/write speeds).

Laser-Etched Custom Labels*
Lightscribe laser etches labels of your own design right into the surface of the disc. There’s no worry of a label peeling off or having to waste time optimizing a design to suit certain label sizes. Our writer uses this advanced Lightscribe technology and will help you create professional-quality discs that are sure to impress customers, friends and family.

*Lightscribe software not included.


Effortless Setup
You don’t have to be a computer guru to use or install the Pawtec Signature External Slim Aluminum Orange DVD+/-RW Writer with Lightscribe. Its Plug-n-Play design works with any USB port, and there is no software to install or learn to use. As soon as you get your new writer, you can just plug it right in with the included USB 3.0 cord and start burning discs immediately. Benefit from the speed of USB 3.0 while still being backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.0/1.1. We also include a USB power cable to supply the writer with additional power, but you can easily use the external CD burner without it.

Unique Color and Design
The slim, lightweight design enhances portability in today’s fast-paced world while the exterior orange aluminum finish makes you stand out from the crowd.

4 out of 5 eggsHappy for now

Pros: Happy to have a Lightscribe burning drive to replace a 9-year old burner that died. Both the data and LS label burned OK.

Cons: Not as structurally robust as I would have preferred. Had to fiddle with getting the disk seated, but it finally did.

Other Thoughts: Though I don't burn a disk often, a good clean label is important when I do. (Examples: Burning income tax records each year to file with paper records ESSENTIAL; Send files to a commercial printer for publications; Burning individual backups for projects, especially our publications.) It's disappointing to see the tech industry cut back a capability that is still useful - even a requirement - for some businesses & individuals, just because it isn't the latest trendy thing. (After all, one can't do everything on a tablet or phone!)
- A last comment re Lightscribe: The full application for Mac is seriously out of date and won't work with recent operating systems (not Pawtec's fault). A simple labeller works, however.
