Pros Portable, USB powered, 2 Yrs International Warranty, 8x DVD writing speed is very decent, very compact in shape and size, does NOT require additional driver installation (not with Windows 7 atleast), very simple plug and play feature.
Cons Two USB ports are required (as recommended by Transcend), higher writing speed is expected, Dual Layer DVD writing capacity should be provided (though I have not tested yet).
Summary A great addition to your notebook if it does not have a DVD writer or just in case you have spoiled the one that is in your laptop. Two year warranty is great since you can write DVDs in peace. I have used it a few days only so I am not yet capable of giving a full scale review, but will be back soon.Correction:

Dual Layer Rewritable DVD writing capabilities should be provided, not DVD-R DL (as it supports this type).
