The Lite-On eTAU208 USB DVD/CD Writer is a slim and light disc burner. Best of all, it’s USB powered, which means you don’t need to carry around a separate power cable. Just plug it into your netbook, insert a disc, and the DVD burner powers up.
As someone with a huge USB DVD burner that’s pretty much anchored to my desk, I love being able to just throw a light weight disc drive in my bag when I might need it on the go. The eTAU208 can get a little noisy, and the plastic case feels a little flimsy. But I wouldn’t really expect much more from a portabl DVD burner that sells for as little as $50.
Lite-on sent me an eTAU208 disc drive to review in October, and now that I’m done with it I’m ready to pass it on to one Liliputing reader.
