Portability is one of the major gadget buzz words these days. We love everything portable, which is perhaps why netbooks and notebooks continue to be popular despite the wide array of high performance desktop computers available on the market. The portability of these netbooks and notebooks come at a price though, with some standard devices and features of your desktop and laptop computers compromised.
A device that may not be that important but we all sorely miss in netbooks and notebooks are DVD/CD players/writers. Thankfully, there are external DVD/CD writers available that we can use. The problem though is finding one that is not only reliable but also just as portable as your netbook. Afterall you wouldn’t want to be lugging around an external DVD writer that weighs a ton. If that’s the case, you might as well just get a bigger laptop that has a built in write.
Lite-On, one of the top names in optical drives, has a great DVD/CD writer that is perfect for netbook and notebook users. The Lite-On eNAU608 external DVD/CD writer is perfect for netbook users that need to have their external writers always on hand, because its size and weight. This super portable DVD/CD writer is just 5.5(W) x 5.2(D) inches big, and is also ultra-slim being just 0.7 inches thick. It weighs less than 0.7 lbs, making it one of the lightest external DVD/CD writers on the market.
Aside from the size and weight, it is virtually fuss free to use since it is USB powered. This means that you do not need to bring power cables, except for your USB cable of course, nor have to find a power outlet each time you need to use it.
The Lite-On eNAU608 external DVD/CD writer is also CD and DVD read compliant and supports both 8cm and 12cm discs of the different CD and DVD families so you don’t have to worry about compatibility issues.
Another cool feature of this DVD/CD writer is that it supports LabelTag, which makes it super easy to make your own circular labels for the discs you write on without having to use any other special devices and software.
With all these features I would suggest that you seriously consider getting Lite-On’s eNAU608 external DVD/CD writer if you are looking for one. It will set you back $69.99, but it seems to be well worth every penny you spend.
