Burn your own copies of videos, photos and music anywhere you go with this SuperSlim DVD Portable Writer from Iomega. The ultra-thin design makes the writer a good travel companion for your PC or Linux laptop for it takes little space. Dual Layer technology lets you burn up to 8.5GB per disc, enjoy more funs! The USB2.0 interface ensures rapid data transfers between your hard drive and the DVD writer.
Bundled with the Nero 7 Express Essentials software suite, burn DVDs, play movies, create labels, view photos and backup files to DVD are easier than before.
Pros: This drive is relatively silent, compact, lightweight, and reliable. Neither my wife nor I have managed to burn even one coaster with it so far. This drive seems to take less time to finalize a disk than other drives (internal or external) I've used in the past.
Cons: The casing is very thin, so you'll want to close the tray by grabbing the drive from the sides instead of the top, or the casing gets in the way of the drive fully closing.
Other Thoughts: The USB cable forks off to provide additional power to the drive. I wouldn't care if the additional cord wasn't as long as the cord that extends from the drive to the computer. All the extra cord is unsightly, but this would be useful if each side of your laptop only had one working USB port.
