[TC] Lite-On eNAU608 External Slim USB DVD/CD Writer Review

External DVD/CD drives are nothing new, but over the past year they have been becoming a little more popular. This is probably because of the increased sales in netbooks and slim laptops. I do prefer a small, slim notebook to a larger one and honestly I rarely use an optical drive. But there are some things you just need an optical drive for, like OS installs and making audio CD’s. Lite-On has sent us a very slim 8x USB DVD/CD writer to check out, the eNAU608. Let’s take a look and see if it is the perfect drive for your netbook or slim laptop.

Final Thoughts
This being one of the first Lite-On products we’ve been able to review we are very impressed. This drives does everything it is supposed to do, so if you purchase it you will not be disappointed. This drive does offer a little bit more than other similar drives. First off it does have the changeable top covers, there are 4 doubled sided covers included and you can print your own as well. Also this drive supports LabelTag technology, which allows you to create a circular label on the data side of the disc without using special media.

I have more or less ditched external DVD for USB 2.0 Flash drives, since they are significantly faster than a DVD player, especially an external one..

Because you can pick up a 4GB USB Flash Drive for generally less than $10, they are awesome, as you can erase them and recode them to boot different Operating Systems!
(I generally keep 10-12 USB Flash Drives on hand, I love em 2 much!)

The only problem I run into is on legacy laptops which cannot load a USB Flash Drive, which is a problem when your trying to fix the stOOpid piece of junk...

Then an external CD player, where an old Iomega one comes in really handy because they are generally plug and play on many old BIOSes..

If you ever get a chance to pick up a legacy External CD Player, buy it fast, you will be glad you did!
