The portability of this model is definitely impressive, but nothing in its technical specs really sets it as superior to other DVD burners you can find. The read/write speeds on this one are decent, but you get better performance from something like the LG GE24NU40 Super Multi External 24x DVD Rewriter. The buffer memory with this model helps protect your data, but is nothing particularly impressive. The portability that you get with this model is excellent, as it only weighs about 7 ounces and is about half an inch high. It uses a tray to load discs so you don’t have to worry about an opening lid and the USB 2.0 support works with a wide range of devices although it requires an Windows OS to work so don’t pick this one if you have a Mac.Rating: 4.25/5
