Summary This is the external DVD burner to have for travel or mate with a netbook. It draws its power from a usb port, it's small, light and fast. Plus it looks attractive. Finally it's priced right,. Walk into Best Buy, see it, buy it. Not many external burners made given most laptops feature internal burners. However, this one is exceptional.
