Asus External DVD-RW Drive for Netbooks
Asus finally made some nice external DVD writer to match their pretty netbooks and nettops — the Asus SDRW-08D1S-U External DVD-RW Drive matches the finish of the Eee PC and the form factor of the Eee Box.
This super-multi DVD burner can do almost any disk formats, except maybe Blu-ray. But that’s just it — an external DVD burner that should stylishly match any of your current Asus netbook.
There’s no more power cable, just the USB cable. There are 4 paddings on the bottom part, it also comes with a cradle so you can position it upright.
Still have to run some burn-in test but Asus claims an 8x speed on DVD and 24x on CD. Burned a 2GB file into a DVD in just 6 mins 58 secs.
Don’t know yet how much this one would cost but I don’t think it’s gonna be cheap. Expect somewhere between Php3-Php5k for this one. Of course, there will be other alternatives out there but if you have an Asus netbook/nettop, it’s nice to pair with wit an Asus ODD.
